Heavy on branding but very well made.

Duh. In all seriousness though, I wouldn't like to tell anybody who I am in case the trolls follow me... Despite the fact it was around a year or two ago it's still fresh in my memory and I remember crying myself to sleep.

Is It Any Good?

Kidz Bop Dance Party: The Video Game is what other less successful dancing games, like Just Dance, hoped to be. Basically, all you need to do is hold the Wii remote in your hand as you follow along with the onscreen choreography -- but what's different here is that the moves are very clearly demonstrated for you (in two visual ways) and the controls really work well at picking up your movements. It's much more fun to play a dance game like this when the game can actually register your moves. It's relatively easy to earn points, and fun to use them to buy either fashionable or whimsical outfits for your avatar. The game is not without flaws, though. For one thing, the career mode doesn't let you skip any songs. And then there's also the music itself. This is subjective, of course, but many of the cutesy kid renditions of these pop songs may grate on adult ears.

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.
