Blending sky diving with action gaming sounds like a wonderful recipe for success, but HIGHFLYER DEATH DEFYER (I4) wastes that potential with an overbearing story, terrible controls, and poor pacing. The opening tutorials go on so long that it's easy to think they're the actual game -- before the story really kicks in with a comic book-style narrative and dangerous obstacles to avoid. It's the controls that really hurt the game, though. It's very easy to get lost as you dive and to miss goals -- which ultimately means you fail the level and must restart. And that quickly leads to frustration. The game has ambitious goals, but in the end it doesn't achieve any of them well.

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.
