In this 2D platform adventure game for Nintendo Wii, girl power rocks! Based on the classic novel The Three Musketeers
by Alexandre Dumas, Barbie travels to Paris to fulfill her dream of becoming one of the legendary musketeers like her father. It's "All for one and one for all" as players help Barbie and her musketeers navigate through Paris, fight villains, find treasures, and solve challenging puzzles to save the handsome prince.Product Features
*Start game play as Barbie's character Corinne. Then go to Paris and perform various acts of bravery to earn additional musketeers.
Step One: Defeat Brutus the dog to earn Viveca.
Step Two: Defeat the knight to earn Renee.
Step Three: Go to the rooftops to save the prince from the hot air balloon, then defeat Bertram, the guard, to earn Aramina.
*Each musketeer has a unique ability to help you navigate the various levels:
Corinne leaps and uses a sword
Viveca waves a ribbon whip
Renee aims a violin bow and arrow
Aramina waves Chinese fans and jumps the highest.
The cat Miette can crawl into tight spaces and open up secret buttons
*Use your musketeer powers to fight off villains, like Brutus the dog, a knight, or a jester, to get to the next level.
*Collect gold coins like in the original Mario Bros. platform game.
(+) It's practically impossible for Barbie and her three musketeer gal pals to die.
(+) Fashionistas will enjoy buying hats for the cat Miette and outfits for Barbie and the three musketeers.
(-) Too bad only one person can play at a time. It would a lot more fun to have 2 - 4 musketeers battling the villains together!
(-) Like the artwork in the popular Cooking Mama games, the computer graphics in Barbie and the Three Musketeers are flat and two-dimensional.
Overall, this is a decent game for new Nintendo Wii players to start with. I also recommend Hello Kitty Seasons game for Nintendo Wii (see link below). Rated E for Everyone.
