IGN writes: "Everyone's favorite bilingual explorer is back with her monkey sidekick in tow, this time wandering through a mysterious icy landscape. Dora and Boots are on an adventure to save the Snow Princess, who after finding a gem and smiling into it to bring snow to the forest, was captured by an evil witch who wants the snow to melt. It sounds like a backwards story, but that's what it is.
While the Dora the Explorer TV program serves as a pretty good educational show for children, Dora the Explorer: Dora Saves the Snow Princess doesn't do a whole lot to teach the youngsters very much. There are really only two sections where any sort of thinking is involved, and both involve picking the correct item from a group of three. When you finish a level and go to travel to the next one, Map will show up and tell you where you need to go, and then you need to pick the picture that matches the description. Similarly, you'll sometimes come across an obstacle, like a frozen lake, and Backpack will pop up to ask you which item Dora should use to cross the challenge. In the case of the lake, he might show you a tennis racket, a flashlight and a pair of ice skates."
