Is It Any Good?

Cheer We Go is unrelentingly upbeat, cheerful, and positive, but it does it in such a way as not to make it overt and cloying. The game uses humor to allow the characters to play off one another. The player is a disorganized, not so studious girl, who has plenty of energy, heart, and verve for cheerleading. The coach is a former star athlete side-lined by injury; and the captain of the cheer team is an experienced cheerleader, but she is emotional and easily distracted by a rival squad and a former best friend. A third cheerleader that joins the team is the brainy one that practically lives in the science lab.

There are 21 chapters or episodes in the story with the dance routines getting progressively harder. The story is a good one where the cheerleaders overcome difficulties and help the school to regain its school spirit through their cheering. Completion of each dance routine with a C or pass grade will let you progress and if you fail, you do get another chance. The better you score, the more coins you earn to spend in the store on clothing and accessories.

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.
