Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

While the Diner Dash franchise is an enjoyable one that has a strong legacy in games, SpongeBob Diner Dash does nothing to advance the games. Sure, the characters are familiar to anyone with a TV or passing knowledge of pop culture, but the silliness and slapstick comedy of the show aren't included in the game, making it just a dull port.

Worse, still, the in-your-face promotion of paying for the "full" version of the game crosses the line of annoyance. If the developers were this worried about getting people to pay for the game, they could easily have offered a trial version and a full paid version and accomplished their goals without annoying their customers.

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.
