Feels like you're part of the Phineas & Ferb gang.

While there is a little violence in this, overall it's pretty cute and a relatively easy game for 5 and up (we have the Wii). We rented it because w/ his dad's help, my son was able to complete the game in a weekend. Some of the navigation was confusing, but not too bad. My almost 4 year old wanted to play it, but couldn't really get the hang of it too well. Probably perfect for 6-9 year olds to play alone if they like phineas and ferb.

Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension is a fun, creative platformer game. The highlight within the 24 different levels is the wild selection of gadgets that players can collect and upgrade to wreak havoc on the enemy minions scattered throughout the game. The levels are also very well designed, ranging from platypus-themed environments to a level made out of gelatin. The actual gameplay mechanics are no different than what has been seen in myriad other platformer games before it, but fans of the Phineas and Ferb TV show should have no problem enjoying this game.
