Loosely based on the Ice Age: Continental Drift feature film, this collection of mini-games can be quite fun (and funny) when the two teams -- the Herds versus the Pirates -- challenge one another in these various games of skill. As you might expect, some of the games are better than others -- such as the downhill racing being more enjoyable than flinging Scrat's acorns at targets -- but kids and kids at heart should enjoy the familiar characters, easy-to-pick-up gameplay, and a nice selection of events to play (not to mention three different modes). The Nintendo Wii version of the game was tested for this review, but the Xbox 360 version, while the same, also requires the Kinect for Xbox 360 peripheral to control the action with your body movements. The Nintendo DS is different from the console versions. Overall, fans of the film should enjoy these humorous and accessible family-friendly activities.

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.
