The ammo is candy, but there's a whole lot of shooting.

Beyond a couple of fun mini-games, including bowling with a jawbreaker candy as your ball, egg catching, and an Easter egg hunt, Hop: The Movie Game mostly offers run-of-the-mill run-around-and-shoot action. The story is told in a stiff and broken-up manner that could make following the plot difficult for anyone who hasn't seen the movie. And the level designs are very unnatural, making the play experience feel like an un-video-game-like movie being forced into a video game. For instance, Fred might be running through a house, but there are maze-like platforms with bottomless pits under them. The game could have been much improved if the developers had stuck to the more playful, Easter-themed fare in the mini-games, and shied away from the standard shoot-em-up action format that seems inappropriate for the targeted age.

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.
