Lots of new cool features; random opponents still a concern.

Is It Any Good?

Draw Something was an instant hit that quickly fell off of people's radar. Draw Something 2 is likely to have more staying power. The game features all the fun of the original, with a much wider assortment of patterns and tools, which will let people show off even more impressive art skills, but more importantly, it uses the community in a much better way. Players can view galleries of each other's drawings -- and can easily post their own on Facebook or Twitter. There's also a gallery of user art from the developer that's updated daily. And a Daily Draw/Daily Guess feature lets users gain an increasing number of coins each day for participating in group events.

That said, this sequel, like the original game, is unregulated and you can play random opponents, so there's always the chance you'll be paired with someone who finds it amusing to draw something inappropriate. Most players won't do this (and you can choose to play with friends and ignore strangers), but it's best to be aware. Parental controls can also help you restrict your opponents to Facebook friends.

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.
