    "Very colorful game and full of fantasy creatures... my son loves it. It's addictive, I'm afraid, but if you balance the time you give access to it, I think it's great. My son looks forward to get his 1/2 hour playing time. I tried other from this list... not bad but this is by far his favorite"

    "As a fan of the old Banjo-Kazooie games I found this game pretty interesting. The gameplay is very similar and and has the same cartoonish art that I used to enjoy as a kid. The downside here is that the developer hasn't come up with anything new or original and is, in a lot of ways, just trying to get by on past glory. "

    "Using Kinect, this was an incredibly frustrating experience for me and my 5 year old. Kinect was unable to add him as a player after 15 minutes of hand waving and increasing anger. Are they selling fun or increased blood pressure? Yes Kinect is calibrated. What a waste of money."

    "This is a good kids' game, and it's pretty fairly priced to be honest. It's not the best game out there by any means, but what kid doesn't like making a giant digital zoo full of all kinds of cool animals? It has enough content to keep them busy for a good while; the only major issue is that its size makes it prone to bugs and crashes. This can be super frustrating, especially for kids who aren't very patient, so I wouldn't enthusiastically recommend this game unless you have a pretty powerful computer to run it on. "

    "Although LEGO Marvel Super Heroes would be a great game for kids on the Xbox One, it may not include all kids as there seems to be more of a favor for legos in general by boys rather than girls. Girls may not be as interested in a game like this so this game is not too inclusive of all kids. The game itself though is great and I do enjoy playing it. "
