Is It Any Good?

Geared explicitly for the pre-teen set, this serves as a good introduction to open-world action games. DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power never overwhelms with complexity or frustrates with difficulty. Many fights take only seconds and can be finished simply by jamming on the attack button to rack up visually satisfying cartoon combos. The camera can get a bit fidgety at times, and the flight mechanic is a little tricky at first, but it doesn't take long to adapt. And if you happen to fail in a fight, the battle instantly reloads with virtually no progress lost, keeping aggravation at a minimum.

But the best parts of the game are often outside of combat. Getting to know the girls, each of whom has a distinct and charming personality as well as her own issues to face, is a treat, and their helping average folks in need only makes you like them more. Even shopping for and decking out the teens in new duds is a blast, thanks to some pretty awesome costume designs that are worth saving up for. And with an overall look and vibe that perfectly captures both the TV show and comics' aesthetic, it's likely to instantly draw in many of the kids who've already come to know and love these strong, admirable female characters in other mediums. DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power is meant for kids who want to see themselves reflected in the world of superheroes, and it excels in that task.
