Kicking Some Dino Butt: Wii Game Review & Giveaway

This GIVEAWAY is now closed. And the Winner is .  .  .  .  . Rae C.- Congratulations!!
This post is part of a sponsored series from Ubisoft, celebrating “12 Days of Giveaways.” See below for how you can enter up to 12 times to win fun and family-friendly video games.
One of the fun perks about being a blogger is that I get to be among the first to try out new products, and it is especially fun when I get to try a new product with my 7 year old gamer son. We were excited to be asked to checkout and review the new Battle of Giants: Dinosaurs Strike for Wii and to quote my little guy “That is so awesome, I bet we get to battle dinosaurs!”
And that is exactly what we did! Dinosaurs Strike is a Wii game where you enter a dinosaur world in turmoil and the biggest creatures of all time fight for total domination–totally appealing to a 7 year old boy! The basics of this game are choosing/customizing a dino and then engaging in dino to dino combat. You use both a Nunchuck and the Wii Remote to attack the other dinosaur and to defend yourself, you can engage in light or heavy attacks, and the best part is that you can do cool things like dino specific combos, dino clashes and dino strikes.

My son liked this game right off the bat and he picked it up pretty quickly. He especially liked the combos and the super powerful Dino Mega Strike, because it gave him “dino super powers.” I enjoyed engaging in battle with him, grunting and getting my aggressions out, and I must admit that it was fun kicking some dino butt!

Here is a recap straight from my little gamer:”It”s a really cool game because you get to design your own dino, learn their names, fight, and battle in cool arenas.”

This is definitely a fun, interactive game and worth checking into for the upcoming holiday season. You can find Battle of Giants: Dinosaurs Strike HERE.
