While there's a lot of great-looking stuff crammed into Playmobil Top Agents -- a vast open city to drive around, loads of gadgets to use and upgrade, 85 varied missions to play out -- the execution feels pretty sloppy. For one thing, there's too much to figure out on your own; the tutorials simply don't give you enough information. And learning to play by trial and error is frustrating. The controls can be an annoyance as well. Jumping requires too much precision and driving could use a lot more precision. Add that to a difficulty level that's a tad too high and you've got a game that a lot of kids may give up on before they get to the best parts.

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.
