Is It Any Good?

Using Angry Birds-style slingshot targeting to create a video game version of Gogo's Crazy Bones was a good idea. Unfortunately, that good idea wasn't really expanded upon in the development of the game. There's practically no variety from one level to the next, outside of the placement of your targets. Kids are bound to be disappointed, for instance, when they finally earn enough stars in World 1 to unlock World 2 and discover that the only thing that's differentiates the two is the backdrop. Even the graphics lack imagination -- the "baskets" you need to land your Gogos in are made up of nothing more than three straight lines. This is one of those licensed games that seems like it was never meant to be more than an interactive ad.

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.
