While this has cat-controlled machines duking it out, this fun game is really more for passive people who like to build and watch than be hands-on. In CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars, you construct a fighting machine and then watch as it battles other people's fighting machines. But while there's a cat driving these battle bots, and you're supposed to be the cat, you don't control the machine yourself. Instead, you just build your machine out of parts you earn from fighting and then sit back and enjoy the show -- or don't, as the case may be, because while this may be fun for people who enjoy watching other people do their dirty work, those who are more hands-on, especially when it comes to fighting games, will find this gets tiresome after a bit. This is especially because some of these battle machines have a tendency to flip onto their backs like drunk turtles and then just lie there, flailing around until the barriers close in from the sides and destroy them. But if you're more passive or just like building things and seeing them work, CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars is surprisingly fun and engaging, especially when you get yourself a really elaborate battle bot.

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.
