Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (6 ):

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!
