While this could've been a fun bike riding game where you do tricks to earn points, the awkward controls make it so difficult that it's more frustrating than fun. In Touchgrind BMX 2, you ride a dirt bike on a track that has numerous jumps and tons of sharp turns. The idea is that if you pull off a lot of cool tricks, you'll earn cool points and will be able to move to the next track. What makes this as hard as, well, doing some of these tricks in real life is that you have to place your thumb and forefinger in a vertical line on the screen, which is awkward and initially makes it hard to do any serious tricks. Granted, it gets easier the more you play, but that takes a while. So long, in fact, that you may be inclined to give up in frustration long before you can do anything impressive. That's especially true if you need to hold your iPad or iPhone in your hand while playing. Which is why -- despite having varied and bumpy tracks, as well as a unique behind-the-bike perspective -- Touchgrind BMX 2 is less fun than riding your bike in the rain.

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.
