Is It Any Good?

Though it lacks any real challenge, and it's a story we've seen before, this interactive comic book still manages to be engaging and heartfelt. In Florence, we watch as a 25-year-old woman meets and falls in love with a cello player. But rather than have players decide the course of their relationship, we're relegated to doing little things that don't really matter that much. Like brushing her teeth by rubbing the screen back and forth, finishing her math homework in a flashback to her youth, and completing simple picture and matching puzzles. Also, her story isn't unique; there have been numerous graphic novels with very similar plots. Despite this lack of challenge or originality, though, this still ends up being a rather engaging tale, one that's heartfelt and honest. Which is why Florence isn't for when you want something to test your reflexes or your intellect, but for when you want to sit back with a good story.

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.
