Is It Any Good?

Our review:

This adaptation of the Cut the Rope franchise is just as addicting as its predecessors. Of course, once players complete a level, there's little incentive to go back and play it again. This means that once all the levels are complete, there isn't a whole lot of replay value. In addition, the game doesn't really take advantage of the 3-D graphics. Nevertheless, the same formula that has made this game exceedingly popular on other platforms is perfectly replicated here.

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.
