Helping my son read better.
Ever since my child became interested in video games, ive tried steer him towards brain stimulating and problem solving heavy games. RPGs are great for this. I looked at this for myself and realized right away he would love this.
It very much resembles pokemon, but with a more innocent and fairy tale type setting . My 6 year old son doesnt read every message, but he does read alot and is reading sentences well beyond his schooling in this game, often amazing me. The violence is very low level, nothing worse than say Shrek or the Lion King. Language can be a bit racy for the strictest parents...for instance one character uses "Stupid" alot but theres nothing that bothered me. It is an emotional story but very well done.
All in all my 6 year old LOVES this, and i love that he is practicing reading and problem solving. He gets to play about 45 minutes a night, which is enough time to progress the story usually.
