IGN: Dora the Explorer: Dora Saves the Mermaids review

Sam Bishop reports:

''Bagging on a game made for preschoolers for being simple is right up there with arguing about a cup of coffee being hot. There's a difference, however, between edutainment and a wafer-thin concept that's spread even thinner in the interest of keeping a kid entertained.

Again, it's more than a little tough to "review" a game like Dora Saves the Mermaids in the traditional sense because the normal rules don't really apply -- or at least expectations can be scaled back a little, but if I could recognize something like Konami's Kids Playground titles as being fairly useful, I'd hope I could do the same for Dora.''

The story is too old to be commented.
