The minigames – or, if you're lucky, platforming sections – are thrown out with only the most cursory attempt to tie them into a coherent story (despite the glut of talking heads). Some are okay and would have benefited from being expanded upon, such as the giraffe-on-a-boulder levels, or the penguin stealth stages (seriously). However, their charms are buried beneath a pile of far poorer efforts. A kid wouldn't put up with such mind-numbing tedium. Are you smarter than a ten-year-old?
