Recommendation: yes good 10 / 10 by The LEGO Car Blog Team

Together, LEGO Cuusoo and Stephen Pakbaz have scored a home run. If the idea of exploring other worlds is at all interesting to you, you'll enjoy this a lot.

Recommendation: meh average 4.5 / 5 by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran

The build wasn't difficult at all and you get to learn more about the vehicle itself while you are building. It makes a great addition for anyone who is interested in space related items.

This was a LOT of fun to put together. It's definitely not a complicated build but it's satisfying seeing how all of the pieces work together. Especially on the suspension. There's lots of detail in this little model!

I think this is a great looking model with some interesting building techniques. It is actually playable too as long as you handle it by the main body or the wheels. The head mast is probably the weakest connection, but who picks anything up by the head? I'm a space nut, so may be biased, but this model will be taking a permanent place on my desk :)

The Curiosity set is most likely going to be one of those sets that sits on display to show the world what a cool LEGO geek you are, and that's just fine. It looks cool and has some great features to show off to friends. The fact that the instruction booklet teaches about Curiosity and Mars and the set gives a hands-on approach to learning about the exploration is something not found in many LEGO sets today. If space exploration, especially the current Mars mission, interests you, I wholeheartedly recommend this set!
