The first thing I noticed about this game was the graphics & how colorful everything was on the game. Our kids were actually fighting over the game so we had to do some separation of the boys. This game is very attractive to the kids which makes the game worth every penny in my opinion.

On one of the reviews I read one person was commenting on how this game isn't purely education. To me this is positive because the kids would get bored with too much educational content. They need to have fun along with learning & there has to be a balance if you ask me. They can also customize their character which was really fun for them.
 
Also the boys 5 & 8 had no problem playing the game & figuring out where to go or what to do next. Of course the 8 year old gave the 5 yr old a little help. We personally love Jumpstart I just wish they would come out with more Wii games. Also I wish the games were somewhat more detailed & longer.
 
One lucky person will win their own Wii Escape From Adventure Island from Jumpstart
