Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the comic humor presented in this wacky software is over the top and will be lost on younger children. Also, some of the storylines feature scantily clad women with jiggling breasts, and a story of the loss of a parent. While quirky and silly, there is something wonderfully appealing about this game, which makes it fun for kids and families to explore. It is one of the best games released in 2006 for the DS.
Is It Any Good?
Reading the witty dialogue and watching the charismatic agents dance greatly contribute to this title's fun. It does a good job of tying in both oldies and current pop songs (from the Rolling Stones to Sum 41) to the storylines. The game also offers longevity: In the single-player mode, players can explore the 19 songs in three levels of difficulty. The multiplayer mode lets players cooperate or compete.
The easy level is accessible to anyone, but the harder levels are devilishly challenging. This game is best for kids 10 and older, because the humor will be lost on younger kids. Also, some of the story lines are inappropriate for younger kids because they feature scantily glad women with jiggling breasts, and the loss of a parent. For DS owners, this unique title brings the funk -- rock out and save the world!
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.
