Is It Any Good?

The television version of PRESS YOUR LUCK is cheesy fun -- and the app has the potential to match that. Unfortunately, the current version is a buggy game that's prone to locking up and has a very limited number of questions. After you play just two rounds, you'll start hearing questions repeated. The single-player version is fairly boring, since the automated contestants pick answers seemingly at random -- and are never intellectual threats. (In one round, for example, the automated contestant guessed that Muhammad Ali was best known as a scientist.) Multiplayer, which is all done locally and not through online matchmaking, is a bit more fun, but still nothing incredible. Finally, the game moves at an incredibly slow pace -- and the host's continually repeated comments get old fast.

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.
