Is It Any Good?

With a few exceptions, the Imagine series has consistently provided girl games with stellar career and lifestyle sims, and Imagine: Gymnast is another win for the brand. It's storyline has just enough drama -- while never becoming mean-spirited or overly soap-operatic -- to keep kids interested. And the controls are well-designed, allowing for a lot of ad hoc customization during play. The ability to design uniforms is a nice bonus -- a feature the developers had no obligation to put in, but which adds nice levels of creativity and variety. If you want to nitpick, you could point out that rhythmic gymnastics are almost an entirely different sport -- one that is performed by different athletes from traditional gymnasts -- but I'm sure there are few kids in the game's target audience who will be much bothered by that.

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.
