Parents would be well-advised to pick up a copy of Stuart Little 2. The presentation and content aimed at younger gamers hits the mark dead-on, but it doesn't skimp on the gameplay. You might find even find yourself sending little Timmy to bed early in order to sneak in an hour or two yourself. There is no nudity, explicit violence or questionable language whatsoever.
Gamers in general looking for platforming action should rent the game. Its solid as a rock and will easily entertain for a few hours. The difficulty is extremely easy and lacks any "grim n gritty" elements, but running around the over-sized environments is a hoot. It's hard not to like a game that does platforming as competently as this. The main character is just cute as a button, to boot.
Fans of 3D platformers should definitely look into Stuart Little 2. If you can get past the ultra-colorful palette and technical limitations of the PlayStation, there is a choice amount of enjoyable action going on here. It's going to be a cakewalk for most older gamers, but that doesn't stop it from being a lot of fun on a small scale.

Currently, he's got about 42 minutes a night to play because adulting is a timesuck, but despite that, he's a happily married guy with two kids who both have better K/D ratios than he does.
Brad still loves Transformers, he's on Marvel Puzzle Quest when nobody at the office is looking, and his favorite game of all time is the first Mass Effect -- and he thought the trilogy's ending was Just Fine, Thanks.
