It's a pretty simple game overall but do keep in mind it is targetting a younger audience. Even so, there's some surprising facts to be found in it. I decided to pull-in my seven year old on this one and he seemed to really enjoy it to the point of wanting to go out and find some of the creatures you learn about, so it seemed to do a really good job of getting him interested in nature.
Some lovely artwork, no annoying goals to get in your way and you get to choose which area to explore and learn about in your own time. Did you know there's a Beetle that hunts in the water? I sure didn't.
