I know it sounds crap but it's ideal for a 6 year old. It has all the characters he probably already knows from the movie, but aside from that as a game it is very child friendly. Basically unlike grown up driving games where a child would drive the car off the track straight away and not be able to get back on, this automatically puts your car back on the track after 3 seconds with barely any delay. Thus making him feel as if he is doing really well.
My 5 year old plays it on her auntie's PS2 and loves it to bits.
By the way, he's a very lucky 6 year old to be getting a 360!
Indeed, theres still a nice little arcade up at the Pleasure Beach, you know the tunnel that runs through the middle? if you are looking at the tunnel from the front, its on the left corner, they have stuff like Paperboy, Operation Wolf, Darius ( with a bust player 1 joystick ), Out Run & loads more, very nice indeed.Yeah the money I spent down there I could have opened up my own arcade!!
I must be a bad parent my six year old loves GOW thinks its a blast,I was going to suggest Gears of War and Saints Row.
Then I realised that would be childish and irresponsible
