Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this unique Wii game can be the foundation of a fun family game night.

One of the five game types involves shooting at spaceships in outer space but no one is hurt.
Is It Any Good?
Let's Tap is surprisingly fun to play with others. It is a perfect party game because it is refreshingly different from other Wii party games, easy to play, and fun to watch. It is one of those rare games that brings non-gamers to the Wii, while satisfying Wii aficionados. In addition to addicting "Tap Runner," the other four types of games are also interesting to explore; particularly "Rhythm Tap," a simplified version of Rock Band and Guitar Hero. With "Rhythm Tap," since there are no fancy controllers, non-gamers don't feel intimidated and can easily follow the icons telling them when to tap.
Let's Tap is one of those games where, if you are in a room with a group that is playing it, you'll want a turn. Plus, it is fun to watch while waiting for your turn, because the antics of the gel guys will have the whole room laughing. Let's Tap is a surefire crowd pleaser.
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.
