While Toy Story: Smash It! is bound to draw comparisons to Angry Birds, it's really more like the older Wii game Boom Blox. Players toss balls at blocks to knock down rubber aliens and collect glowing alphabet blocks. The key to solving the puzzle is figuring out how to accomplish the goal with the most finesse, whether that be by knocking it down with one well-placed throw or finding the point in a structure where you start a chain reaction.

The problem with the game is the aiming mechanism isn't overly precise -- or perhaps too precise. The reticle wavers on screen as you try to line up a shot, and precise hits aren't as easy as they should be, especially given the kid-focused setting. Younger children, who might be excited to play a game starring Buzz Lightyear, might get frustrated after a short period.

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.
