MISSION MIGRATION achieves its goal of presenting a worthwhile amount of information to kids without creating a boring experience. The mini-games are varied and interesting, and should hold the attention of anyone who plays through it. The game does feel a little detached at times, since the gameplay is only loosely connected to the educational material presented throughout the game. The learning material comes directly from the National Audubon Society, so it can be trusted. Kids are likely to learn something about the complex ecosystem and migration patterns of birds. Unfortunately, most of this learning is placed on top of the gaming, instead of being baked into the gameplay.

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.
