My 3 year old (academically advanced) LOVES Star Wars and this game (he's been fascinated by space for a long time). He can easily play it on the 2nd level and even 3rd for some games so I'm not sure how good it would be for the higher age range but those levels are for kids who are reading or very close to it. It does have guns and some violence but no blood, etc. If it gets them working on educational stuff, I'm all for it. My son asks to play Star Wars on the leapster often.
