A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this game.

Positive Messages

These girls live to shop!

Violence & Scariness
Language
Consumerism

Lots of shopping, but for generic items.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this game is based on the latest line for the Bratz fashion dolls. The Bratz live to shop, so parents should not be surprised that this game is filled with shallow materialism. However, underneath this fashion focus is a good collection of quality Mini games and activities.

What's it about?

Upon discovering there is a nationwide contest to choose the hottest young fashion designers, the Bratz -- Cloe, Jade, Sasha, and Yasmin -- enter and hope to win. They visit three cities across America, searching for the styles that will allow them to stand out. Although this game presents a simple story, it is really just a collection of replayable Mini games with each city serving as a hub. Activities are also found in the main menu located at the top screen of the DS, allowing the Bratz to shop with money they've earned the Mini games, train their pets (in a Nintendogs-type activity), practice their runway fashion moves, and change their outfits.

Is it any good?

Bratz Forever Diamondz presents a nice collection of Mini games that are targeted directly at girls. The cover pictures on the game case and manual are the most risqué features of the game, and the small-size figures in the game appear fairly innocent in comparison.

There are 16 games, but as many are very similar, it seems like fewer. Logic and matching games give the brain a small workout. Some of these games are quite fun, like Treat Builder, where pet treats are packaged in order; Water Skiing, where the player uses the DS stylus to guide the Bratz girl up ramps to do ski tricks; Gemz, a sorting arcade game; and Top Trumps, a Battle/War card game.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the Bratz' focus on fashion. What do you think about the their obsession with clothes -- are they really all that important? Parents might also ask which of the Mini games kids liked the most and why.
