Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1 ):

Dirty Dancing is really only loosely tied to the movie, but there are enough nods to the source material -- including a scrapbook of unlockable still images from the film -- that fans shouldn't feel totally alienated. Although the game's central theme is romance, there's nothing "dirty" or objectionable about its content. Romance blossoming between two guests is shown as hearts rising above their heads, and the game uses a pixilated art style that's quirky and cartoonish rather than steamy.

The addition of dance parties sets Dirty Dancing apart somewhat from similar social sims, but players must wait at least an hour of real-time in between dance rehearsals (unless they shell out real-world cash to speed things up), so it's easy to run out of things to do.

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.
