I have to say that I love the game too! It is a two player game, but it is different because you can play the game together as different Star Wars characters. I think there are even some things to be learned from the game besides improving hand eye coordination. I have taught the boys that Mom can hang while playing video games. And more importantly we are also working on dismissing gender roles. In the beginning when I played, the boys insisted that I play as Princess Leia. And since she is the only female in the game, I was not 'allowed' to play as anyone else!
I think they might have witnessed a little steam emanating from my ears. I will give you the short version and just say that the Princess turned on her teammate and kicked some serious Stormtropper and then Jedi behind! Let's just say that they learned a good lesson. After seeing the powers that a woman can have, I have now seen them playing as Princess Leia! I am going to make them into good men, even if I have to 'blow them up' along the way to teach them a thing or two!
