Kids say (5):

The game has elegant settings, but it is lacking in overall depth and complexity of play. Play is quite simple and unfortunately the difficulty level isn't adjustable. It's common to limit the opposing team to 0 points. There are four positions to be learned, but play is quite easy with all and the computer even switches you over to the appropriate player position at any given moment.

Complex moves are available to be learned, but in general they're quite easy to carry out, as a series of buttons are pressed and the game then shows a short scene of the move. While enjoyable at first, limited types of play are available and the games quickly become repetitive.

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.
