Though it's a rather blatant rip-off of such games as Lara Croft GO, Hitman GO, and Deus Ex GO, this motion puzzle game adds enough new ideas to almost make it as much fun. Inspired by the upcoming movie of the same name, Geostorm has you making your way through buildings that have been damaged by severe weather. Moving along a grid, you have to carefully plan where to go so you can avoid hazards and solve puzzles that will, of course, help you avoid hazards. You even have optional objectives, such as finding some intel. What makes this different from the GO games is that you aren't limited to only a certain number of moves (though this is sometimes an option), and you don't often have to time your moves to avoid dying or being spotted. It's just annoying that, unless you want to pay for the privilege of playing, the game makes you watch an ad before almost every level, and sometimes makes you wait before you can watch an ad. It's also odd how you keep dropping the fire axe you need to use to solve some puzzles when you use one in almost every level. Even with all these issues, though, Geostorm will probably hold your attention until it stops raining and you can go outside and enjoy the nice weather we've created for you.

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.
