CN Superstar Soccer

(i)

 

Play as TV faves; controls a bit tricky to master.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

Playing against the computer is crazy, fast-paced, and challenging. Playing against an opponent is slower-paced, and it's easier to score.

Violence

Play is as aggressive as any fast-paced soccer game.

Sex

Consumerism

A game icon links directly to the app store and other apps. The ads featured on the playing field feature lots of Cartoon Network-style fake billboards.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that CN Superstar Soccer can be played by a single player or with multiple players randomly matched over the network. Kids who enter an age of 13 or older can play the multiplayer game, but kids are simply asked to enter an age -- there's no verification. There are no chat options with the multiplayer game, and no username or information about the player is shared. Kids can choose their team captains from Cartoon Network characters from the shows Adventure Time, Regular Show, The Amazing World of Gumball, and Ben 10.

What's it about?

Before starting a game, kids have to enter their age. If they enter an age under 13, they can play a single-player game. If they enter 13 or over, they can choose between a single-player or multiplayer game. In either game, they then choose their team and captain from the four shows. In the single-player game, they are randomly assigned a computer-player opponent. In the multiplayer game, they are randomly assigned another player to compete with. Kids control the players using an A and B button on the screen competing in three-minute matches.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

CN SUPERSTAR SOCCER is fast-paced -- so much so that it's almost too tricky. Kids control the players using an A and B button, as on a game controller. Holding a tablet and hitting the buttons can be awkward. Once kids get the hang of the controls, the game is fun, but there's no record of scores or wins. The whole game seems to be a novelty to promote Cartoon Network shows by playing on soccer interest fueled by the World Cup.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the rules of soccer and the fan culture that surrounds it and the World Cup.

  • Encourage kids to kick around a soccer ball outside.
