The cartoon-like style may make it appear to be just-for-fun and for younger kids, but this can be a challenging sim. Especially if players want to maximize point totals by completed designated tricks on each level, it will take multiple tries and lots of work to master Pumped BMX 3. Levels have enticing names like "Dark Woods," "The Mountain," and "Wetlands" that keep kids working to get there and see what the upcoming courses will be like. One rather serious oversight, especially for younger players, is that the pros here don't wear any protective gear -- no helmet, knee pads, or elbow pads -- and they walk away from each crash completely unbruised and unbroken. Yes, it's just a sim, but it's also a lost opportunity for celebrity riders to model safety for kids.

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.
