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.

Fine for older teens/adults

Good game for older teens and adults but some of the songs, dances, and clips from the show are too suggestive or racy for younger kids. There are some words that are deleted from the lyrics but others that are just as or more objectionable left it. While there are several difficulty levels, the complete lack of instructions at times makes the game more difficult that it should be. It almost seems like they rushed to get the game on the shelves instead of taking time to write the manual. There is nothing to explain the difference in the various types of play (shooting star vs co-op vs duet vs scrapbook). This lack of clear directions makes the actual game play less fun than it should be. I notice the Vol. 2 review here on CSM indicates it features a "new" shooting star mode. Vol. 1 also has shooting star mode, which we only realized when the younger child was goofing around with the wii remote while waiting for his turn. How would anyone know? There's nothing anywhere that explains what it is or what to do in that mode. The duet mode is fun and challenging as you actually have to hit harmonies to get a good score, but unfortunately not all the songs have duet mode as an option. If all you want to do is plug in a microphone and sing, you probably won't care about these shortcomings. My husband & I do find Glee Karaoke more enjoyable than RockBand because we actually know all of the songs on GK vs RB which has lots of obscure artists.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
age 13+

if you can get over the new generation - best think to ever hit our kids

like it or not this is the media of the futre that actually engages in teans' lives and their problems, and deals with them honesty. my little nephews and nieces that watch Glee already have higher self esteem bc they can associate with "non" perfect people that are jut like them

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
