I went to BB today to purchase SingStar and brought along my 5 year old son. For some strange reason I've been contemplating SingStar, though I can't sing at all!
I was hoping that my 5 year old and his 3 year old brother would be able to play with it a bit, and that it would help bring my wife into the act. So far the kids' favorite thing about my PS3 is the Eye.


Anyway, as I picked up SingStar my son found Wall-E. Those Pixar folks know what they are doing for marketing, because my son has been talking about Wall-E for weeks! Anyway, I ended up buying Wall-E rather than SingStar. We haven't even opened the package yet -- I was hoping someone might have a word or two to say about it. I found one review that sounds fine:

I was mostly glad to see that PS3 finally has an E for absolutely everyone title. I'll try and post a few comments tomorrow night.

-My thoughts without seeing a review.


It probably won't be that good, so just return it. There was a thread recently on the forum about games for five year olds, so search for it on the forum.


I would recommend Ratchet and Clank FTOD, as it is an awesome game and is rated E.

Get Singstar too if they like singing, and they can also record themselves with the Eye.

Funny thing about 5 year olds...They don't care about gameplay or graphics. They just want to play Wall-E.


I didn't Spiderman 3 was all that either but my nephew sure loved it. That is all he wanted to play for months. lol

Yeah, that's about right.


Ratchet and Clank TOD is fun for everyone though.

A 5 year old kid doesn't care about gameplay or anything. They just want to move him around the screen. It's obviously not going to be something adults get into much more than helping their kids out.

I got Ratchet and Clank, I thought my almost 5 year old would like it but he was scared of all the robots attacking. He doesn't mind watching me play though, so I guess it works out for both of us.

ROFL. Truer words were never spoken
.


My son is almost three, and he LOVES Wall-E. We're going to see the movie tomorrow morning, it will be his second... Horton Hears a Who was the first and he did pretty well there. I predict at least three Oh NO! ... Wall-E is HURT. HELP WALL-E! shouts though...


He's probably too young for a Wall-E video game, but you never know... he loves the Wall-E robot builder on the official site.

Thanks for the advice folks - certainly good advice, but there was no way I was getting WALL-E back from my 5 year old. On the plus side, we played the game yesterday and it was actually enjoyable. It was the first game my 5 year old son could play pretty well (outside of the PS2 Dora Purple Planet game), and the graphics were decent enough. I also like how WALL-E has 2 player mode, with up to 4 people able to play on some games. I'm glad we picked this up, if only to hear the great giggles from my kids. I'll pay $50 for that!


Regarding R&C:TOD, I have that, but my wife doesn't like the kids seeing the "violence" in that game. Technically that and many other games are rated E10+, not just E. So it was nice to find a title for the little tikes.
