Rabbids Rumble – Review #UbiChamps #RabbidsR

31st January 2013

Thank you to Ubisoft for sponsoring this post. Please click here to learn more about Ubisoft. I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective. #UbiChamps

Rabbids Rumble is a fun Nintendo 3DS game that begins when 102 Rabbids are released into the game and throughout the DS, and the goal is to capture them all.  You can play the game in two different modes: Story mode allows you to play various mini games as a means to capture the Rabbids. There is also a Battle Mode, where you can play multiplayer games against a friend or against the DS itself.

The Rabbids themselves are very funny, weird characters that are super amusing, especially to my nine year old. He really enjoyed this game – this is his first experience with any of the Rabbids games – and it kept him amused for a very long time. I have to admit, that I was not good at this game at all, so I was happy to let him take over, despite feeling very OLD afterward. Personally, I think Rabbids Rumble is definitely geared towards a younger player – they love funny and weird and have a deep appreciation for bodily functions after all.

Rabbids Rumble 3DS is rated E10+ (for Crude humour, mild cartoon violence) and is available at Amazon and ToysRUs.

Imagine Fashion Life – A Review #UbiFashionLife

21st November 2012

Ubisoft’s Imagine Fashion Life for the 3DS is a game that is all about fashion and is set in Fashion Town.

There are several characters that are unlocked throughout the game but the player is Emma, who is new to the fashion scene. The game begins with you choosing a career – designer, top model, or manager, and then you complete tasks within in each career to progress. As you progress and complete missions, you become more famous.

Within Fashion Town, there are several buildings that you can access via map. What you choose as your career will determine the buildings you will spend time in and what you will do there.

There is also an online option to this game that will allow you to download additional content for the game, but it isn’t necessary to play the game. This game can also be played in 3D or 2D if you prefer. The game is very similar to Imagine Babyz in that you watch the game on the top screen, and maneuver/play the game on the bottom screen.

The game is rated E for everyone but I think it’s probably geared towards an older child (tweens) – there were too many steps and instructions to keep my six year old interested for long. I would have also liked to see an option to be able to alter the avatar beyond outfit and hair. All the characters in this game look pretty much the same, and I think it would be great to be able to make the main character your own.

For the tweens on your holiday gift list, Imagine Fashion Life can be purchased at Amazon.com

Horses 3D Nintendo 3DS Game – Review

16th May 2012

Horses 3D is a fun, simulation game that allows the player to care for horses. The game begins by asking you a series of questions such as what your favorite equestrian dream sport is, favorite music and favorite colour. You then get to personalize your character and horse, which then help to create your Horses 3D profile.

Again there is a lot of reading in this game, so that is something to consider when purchasing this game. The game gives you a series of tasks that you need to complete to continue with the game, however it is very good at helping you along to the next task. There are fun challenges and game throughout as well, like racing others and competing in competing in horse events. You learn to take care of your horse and can run a stable of up to 15 horses. My five year old LOVES this game. She is a big fan of animals and horses, and loved “taking care of her horse”. Horses 3D is a definite hit in our house!

Horses 3D is rated E for everyone and please remember that Nintendo suggests that the 3D mode be used by children seven and up – the game can be enjoyed in both modes.

Funky Barn 3D Nintendo 3DS Game – Review

16th May 2012

Funky Barn 3D by Ubisoft is a “farm simulation game” that allows the player to set up an entire farm, while choosing which animals and equipment they would like to include. The game begins with a step-by-step walkthrough to get you started and familiarize yourself with the controls. It also makes suggestions throughout, to help guide you as you set up your farm. You can set up your farm on one of three lots, depending on the level of difficulty you want to play (easy, medium and hard). You can also play challenge scenarios, but those are only available once you’ve completed your first farm.

The game can be played in both 3D and 2D – but it is suggested that children younger than seven should avoid the 3D altogether. My son, who’s eight, tends to use 2D for all his games and enjoys it much better – he tends to experience the eye strain that 3D can create. The game can be fun and silly, but if your child doesn’t enjoy simulation games, then this one isn’t for them. You definitely need to be able to read to play this game, and I did find the controls required to move items and play, would be easier to manipulate by an older child. My five year old daughter who doesn’t have the patience for this type of game wasn’t interested in playing at all, while my son was willing to give it a go and has been playing it.

For me personally, I didn’t love this game – I found the interface a bit difficult to follow (perhaps I have giant fingers?) althought in fairness, simulation games are not my thing at all.

Funky Barn 3D is not an educational or learning game, so you need to keep that in mind if that’s what you’re looking for. However, it is rated E for everyone (with comic mischief).
