The friendly folks at Knowledge Adventure sent me another Wii game to review. This one is called Escape from Adventure Island.
Hope, Jonathan and I gave it a test run today. They LOVED it. Hope had more fun creating her character than actually playing the game, but she’s 3 and a girl.
Jonathan is a little older than the targeted age group, but he had just as much fun with it as he does his games. They both maneuvered their characters with ease. I had to smile at the educational content of this video game. Even little Hope, at 3, was learning some new math skills!
Escape from Adventure Island will be relaced on November 17th and will be available at major retailers nationwide for $29.99. It the targeted age for this game is between 5-9. The ERSB has rated it “E” for Everyone.
