"Parents will like that the game encourages kids to be nurturing by teaching them how to take care of another. While kids bond with familiar movie characters, they'll learn important values like caring and responsibility. This game is very good, but it has a few minor flaws. While initially there seems to be a lot to do with your cartoon friends, when you have eventually explored all of the 16 locations and played the games at each, the content doesn't seem so deep. The game will eventually run its course; but if you are lucky, that will be after several weeks of enjoyable play."

Parents need to know that this is a game that teaches about nurturing and taking care of others. It is a life simulation game with some adventure aspects thrown in. And since it reveals its content slowly over time, it is a game that teaches responsibility as kids must periodically check in on their charges. If kids forget to check in on their friends, they don't die although they may complain about your absence. The game also provides a few games for kids to play together using the Internet via Nintendo Wi-Fi connection, or locally using a wireless connection. Common Sense Media does not recommend online gaming for anyone under age 12.

With a focus on building relationships as opposed to forcing the player to hold their characters hands the entire time Disney Friends manages to work on several levels. The recognizable characters will appeal to fans young and old and the simplistic and satisfying gameplay is enough to keep you interested. The presentation deserves most of the credit for immersion, especially the voice work which I cannot stress enough how phenomenal it truly is and the simplicity works just right for this type of game. If you are a fan of these types of experiences you will be hard pressed to find a better offering than Amaze’s Disney Friends, and having the names and faces of such adored characters certainly doesn’t hurt it’s appeal.

Disney Friends ist ein schönes Kinderspiel mit hohem Knuddelfaktor, das dank liebenswerter, witziger Präsentation auch älteren Semestern unter den Zeichentrickfans gefallen wird. Gerade die haben aber recht schnell alles gesehen und vermissen dann komplexere Abläufe oder größere Spielumgebungen mit mehr Herausforderungen.

Si Mes Amis Disney garde une approche classique du jeu de simulation animale, il se démarque de la concurrence par son univers attachant et par le design craquant de ses personnages. En outre, sa jouabilité est tout à fait adaptée au jeune public auquel il se destine. Quatre compagnons virtuels aussi sympa dans une seule cartouche, on apprécie !

Disney Friends isn't the best pet simulation game on the market, but it's the only pet sim comes with "pets" that kids already have attachments to. The game is very basic in terms of gameplay, but the few interesting minigames and the gigantic amount of personality keeps it enjoyable. The game looks and sounds pretty nice as well, with good voice acting and some really nice character models. It might not last players very long, especially if they really get into it and play nonstop, but it's a fun ride.
