It's refreshing to find a track building/racing car game for kids that doesn't feel like it was designed for kids. Immediately upon launching RaceCraft - Build & Race, kids are immersed in the world of race car driving as announcers welcome them and get them started with building. Building a track requires minimal fine motor skills, but it does take some planning, as pieces rotate themselves to fit into place. Likewise, racing is as easy as tapping on the screen, although it should be noted that the focus is more on track building than actually racing. The graphics are colorful and polished, and the immersive experience of riding your own race track is a win. The real drawback --one of the only drawbacks -- is the pressure to buy additional cars. They're expensive, but also enticing -- a rough combination for families on a budget. Still, this is a fun game with appeal that will extend to many older kids and adults.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
