If you can get past the blatant attempts to get you to drink Red Bull, you might enjoy this engaging downhill dirt bike racing game. In Bike Unchained 2, you have to tap and hold the screen at just the right time to make sure your on-screen rider pedals when necessary, cruises along when that's called for, and sticks the landings, all while competing in a downhill dirt bike race. You're hoping to do this faster than the previous runs of other people the game has chosen as your competition for any particular round. The game boasts a good variety of bumpy tracks, as well as numerous rewards to keep you playing so that you can get those super-cool pedals.

But while this is largely just a matter of correctly identifying the terrain and tapping or holding the screen accordingly, it's somewhat cheapened by the blatant attempts to get you to drink Red Bull. Not only do the real pro bikers who mentor you all wear Red Bull hats, but they encourage you to drink it. Doing so in the game gives you a boost (with your performance, not with your winnings or fake sponsorship in the game). Still, unless you really hate Red Bull, or things that are overly commercial, Bike Unchained 2 is a fun ride down a steep, bumpy hill.

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.
