We recently purchased the Wii for our 8 and 6 year old (and their parents). The kids love High School Musical 1 and 2 and listen to the soundtrack often. The game therefore seemed like a no-brainer. The game is fun, especially if your kids love the movies and sountracks. The graphics are not great. Music is great--it's the soundtracks from HSM 1 and 2. If your kids like to sing with the soundtracks, they will like it even more with this. Singing on tempo unlocks more songs and your kids can change venues to sing in (cafeteria, rooftop, auditorium, etc). There is nothing challenging about the game. It is simply karaoke. If you are looking for strategy or challenge, look elsewhere. If you are looking for you kids to sing for hours, it's great. Because of its lack of challenge and graphics, I would anticipate older kids will grow bored after a few hours--much more quickly than younger ones.
