I put off buying this game for my daughter simply because it looked, well cheesy. So many of the Disney Princess items are just mass produced and lack any of the Disney "magic". In fact, I'm quite burned out on the Disney Princess craze, even though I adore Disney in general nd go to the parks several times a year. I also thought it was just some sort of dress up game and that was it. But I finally broke down and got it for my daughter's 4th birthday and what a surprise.
This game is so wonderful! The graphics are rich and detailed, as good as any Disney film. There is none of the jagged pixelation or "stutters" of the graphics in some of the children's games we have for the Wii. The minute the game started, both my daughter and I got sucked right into it. My daughter played and I watched and helped when necessary. The gameplay is very intuitive and easy to figure out, but challenging enough that it's not boring.
Instead of being thrown right into the action when the game starts, the game is like a movie or a storybook- a backstory is presented, and your character is brought through a magical castle as she is introduced to both the goal of the game and how to play the game. Yes, there is a "dress up" part at the very start of the game- and it's really lovely and well done. Gameplay is "filmed" from many angles so as your character moves through scenes, it almost feels as if you are there, with her.
The "Enchanted Journey" itself is basically a quest to assist several of Disney's most beloved Princesses- Ariel, Snow White, Jasmine, and Cinderella. Your character is escorted into each of their "worlds" (which are richly illustrated, animated, and scored) and given small tasks to do in order to help the Princesses out. Almost all tasks in the game are completed by waving the Wii remote like a magic wand- there are several different motions, and each does a specific kind of magic.
I have to admit, I'm not a fan of kid's games at all but I got sucked into this one instantly. It almost felt like being on a ride at Disney. The music, the colors, the animation... it's all really well done.
No, it's not a long, time-consuming game. The tasks are simple. For each Princess, there are about three tasks to accomplish. For an older child, this won't take long. But for a little girl, it's perfect. There's enough to see and do in this game besides the gameplay that it makes the game well worth the money.
If you are remotely on the fence about buying this for your Disney Princess fan, just do it.
