Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (8):

With appealing 3D graphics and fun activities, this sim is amusing, but its gameplay can feel too complicated and buggy to keep kids engaged. It's hard to understand how to do well because the in-app instructions tell you how to do certain tasks, but there's not much clarity about how to do all those actions strategically so you can level up. Plus, playing this game also might make you a little cynical about what it takes to be a YouTube star. It's really less about being a skilled gamer or content creator and much more about courting trends and accumulating stuff. It's cool to consider how much goes into creating a high-quality YouTube video, and it's interesting to think about the mechanics of making a successful channel. Still, in a world where PewDiePie's Tuber Simulator can be downloaded for free, it's unlikely that this comparatively buggy and hard-to-use app would hold long-term appeal for teens and tweens.

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.
