Great game that all ages will enjoy.
I think this is a great game that is fun for all ages. But some little people may not understand some of the harder stuff, but once again, I think this game is not to be missed by them. True, there is some mild comic-book and cartoon violence (e.g., jumping on and flattening enemies, spinning on them and sending them flying before they disappear), but it's all kind of funny. In my opinion, even little kids will handle the evil look and loud roars of the main villain, Bowser (unless they are sensitive). Seeing the funny fighting may encourage kids to get plush toys of the characters and make some fight scenes with them, which I think will make them happy.
