Gameplay issues aside, Big Beach Sports does manage to do a few things very well. For starters, it nails the motion-sensitive controls of several of its games – especially volleyball. Bumping, setting, and spiking the ball involves movements that will seem perfectly natural to anyone who has ever played the game in real life. Cricket, too, requires intuitive movements for swinging the bat and pitching the ball. Indeed, these two games, along with bocce ball, which requires some surprisingly deep strategizing when played against a competent human opponent, have potential to keep people playing for an hour or more at a time. That said, $30 is a bit much to ask for a party game with just three compelling activities. Wait for this one to hit the bargain bins.

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.
