Storm Seekers is a nice mix of entertainment and education. It looks great and has a cool, accessible concept, but it's also intently focused on teaching kids about the science of weather prediction. Because of the ever-changing weather during a play session, there's no rote memorization, just informed analysis. Kids get to experiment with what works and what doesn't, gaining valuable knowledge about how weather conditions impact patterns and how environment and geography impact weather. It's also adaptable to kids of varying abilities. By choosing where they make their predictions, kids can adjust difficulty on the fly, choosing more predictable environments like lakes and oceans or more unpredictable mountainous regions. Kids are rewarded for successfully predicting more difficult choices, and their score is added up and displayed at the end. It's a clever concept that covers a rare subject with tons of polish and style, and all for a low price. Budding meteorologists will come back for more.

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.
