Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

It may not be a game in the traditional sense, but kids with a passion for animals are likely to fall in love with this series of adventures into the wild world of owls, bears, and other creatures. Each show packs in interesting information and compelling video of animals in their natural environments. And kids are frequently involved in the action. Rarely do more than a couple of minutes pass before the software calls on players to pop a few pictures of animals or recall what they've learned by answering questions in quick quizzes. Plus, fun games -- such as one in which kids play the role of a wolverine dodging avalanches, then digging out food and defending it from other animals -- put the game's lessons into context and help drive home information kids have picked up along the way. The activities can become a little repetitive, but the overall experience remains fresh thanks to each episode's focus on different species. Kids will have a blast, and learn something in the process.

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.
