Wolverine and the X-Men 


Family Friendly Gaming is very pleased to get another didj game for review thanks to our friends over at Leap Frog. Wolverine and the X-Men teaches spelling, letter names, sounds, long vowels, short vowels, suffixes, and prefixes. There are over 10,000 spelling words that match ones used in schools today. Kids in the kindergarten to the third grade are the target audience of this didj game.

Wolverine and the X-Men has some great color schemes. There are various Marvel Comics characters in this hand held learning game. A few of them like Emma Frost dress in a questionable manner. Half of Wolverine and the X-Men is having Wolverine fight his way through enemies (editor: and bosses), whereas the other half is spelling words.

Wolverine and the X-Men tells the player the word they have to spell in many of the levels. Be sure there is no external noises to interfere with hearing the word(s). You are allowed three misses, but I found some children get frustrated if they can not hear the word. The music is nice in Wolverine and the X-Men, and fits the theme.

When you earn enough Blitz points with Wolverine and the X-Men you can use that to connect online to customize your game. This is a neat little feature that children will enjoy. I say children, but boys are more interested in Wolverine and the X-Men than girls are. Wolverine also learns skills as you progress through the game.

There are a couple of buttons used for the majority of this didj game. The 'A' button, the 'B' button, and the directional pad. Children in the age range had no problems with these controls. I also played Wolverine and the X-Men, and found the controls worked just fine. The game can get repetitive with fighting off bad guys, spelling three words, and then fighting off some more bad guys, and then spelling some more. Finishing a mission means the player can go to the mansion and interact with various other characters - so that broke it up a little bit.

Wolverine and the X-Men teaches spelling, and does so in an action adventure comic based video game. Kids that are into Wolverine and the X-Men will learn how to spell. So a real world skill accompanies the video game. Adults who are learning English can also use a game like this one to progress along as well.
