All three of my kids positively adore the Despicable Me movie so they were thrilled when these two games arrived to try out. Olivia wanted to play both of the games but found them both too hard. She did say she wished she could be Edith (her favourite little girl in the movie) and she enjoyed watching the boys play.

Aiden (age 8) seems to prefer the Wii version of the game. I asked him what he thought of it and he said it was cool but a little hard. He said the minions are funny and that it is a lot like the movie. 

Owen (age 7) seems to prefer the DS version although he said it can get frustrating because the it is a little hard. He did say that it is funny to watch the "minion-guy fall and stuff". 

My husband said that the game is a little tricky for the skill level of our younger son for sure but that it is a fun game with good graphics. He said if followed the movie plot-line quite well and that was cool. 

If you have Despicable Me fans in your house than they are sure to enjoy this fun game!

Thanks so much to D3Publisher for sending us copies of these two games to review.
