Is It Any Good?

Lego Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin takes everything that kids love about the cartoon and packs it nicely into a handheld game. It's easy to pick up and play, the action is constant, and the story keeps all the goofy humor kids have come to expect from the Spinjitsu masters. There's also a lot of extra hidden and unlockable extras to keep kids coming back even after completing the story. It's easy to tell that Lego Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin is geared more toward younger gamers. The fighting is basic button-mashing, and the puzzles all are relatively simple. As with many Lego games, certain characters' specific abilities are needed to overcome certain obstacles, but the game is pretty good about helping players progress. Overall, Lego Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin does a great job of letting kids feel like they've become a part of the show.

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.
