Though some will love the challenge of playing against themselves, others may find Does Not Commute frustrating; its setting, music, graphics, and facts about each driver are charming and funny, but its controls are finicky -- perhaps by design. It takes a while to get the hang of it, as it's very easy to overcorrect and forget that oncoming cars use opposite directions to steer. Also, the cars have no brakes, so you'll hit houses, trees, and other cars frequently. Without checkpoints, it's almost certain you'll run out of time and have to start over, which will be no problem for some and infuriating for others -- as in a real morning commute.

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.
