This game is great for kids and adults! It becomes a game played by the whole family because as the game progresses, the puzzles you have to solve get more difficult. It is very entertaining, though. And in the usual Sims way, the characters speak Simglish instead of words you can understand. The words are subtitled so it has also helped my 6 year old brush up on his reading skills. The only complaint I have is the expense of Wii games. Most of the good ones are $50+.
