Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (3):

The constant fighting gets old quickly, but the humor in the dialogue keeps it fun. If your kids like games that let them smash and bash everything in sight, then this is not a bad movie tie-in adventure. And the Mini games can be entertaining. The Nintendo DS version is the better game because it offers cooperative play for up to three players and focuses on puzzle play instead of combat.

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.
