It's almost summer. I'm not getting a game that will remind me of school.

About the screenshots: The graphics are a joke as far as #2 is concerned, but I love the way they made the chimney smoke in the last screenshot.

You can go to a REAL playground for a little cheaper. Maybe this is for people who can't go outdoors! Anyway I'd rather pay money for something unique.

They have little go karts, that a park doesn't have.

A real playground, HA! As if. My friend has a little sister in grade school, and she does nothing but tell us how the school has taken away the tether balls because of kids getting hit in the face, or the rope around their necks or something of the sort. Dodge-ball, as we all know, has been baned from schools because of its violent nature and cause to filter the teams into "jocks vs Nerds". To do RC races, you need friends all with RC cars. In other words, this is to show your kids and siblings of a time that recess was fun, and the games were awesome.
