Mii Force is probably the shortest and easiest of all the 3DS StreetPass games. Early missions are a piece of cake and can be restarted a couple of times with each new batch of Mii avatars. Even later missions aren't very hard to beat if you can manage to take five or 10 allies along for the ride. Since there are only 15 missions, kids could conceivably finish Mii Force in a couple of weeks.

It'll take a lot longer to meet special objectives for each mission, such as collecting the five diamond-like gems scattered around each map or not losing any ships, but the action -- which involves nothing more complex than slow movement, aiming, and firing -- is unlikely to keep many players interested much past beating the final boss. The lure of earning more impressive "reputations" -- unlockable call signs that other players can see on leaderboards -- to impress friends is probably a better reason to keep playing, but it's still not enough. It's moderately fun while it lasts, but Mii Force simply hasn't the staying power of other StreetPass games.

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.
