A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
The idea here is time worn and simple: if you work together as a team, you can defeat the evil enemy. However, you accomplish this goal by fighting.
Positive Role Models
The superhero team of Spyborgs always want to get the job done right. Perhaps a child can make the leap to do this in real life with chores and homework.
Ease of Play
This looks like it should be easier to play than it is. But it's sometimes very difficult to pull off moves with the Wii remote.
Violence & Scariness
The violence here is toned down in the sense that there is no blood, only sparks, lightning, fire, and bright colors fly when you hit the robotic enemies. You control a cyborg who is fighting evil, laser-shooting robots. There is hand-to-hand combat, and slow-mo finishing moves shown up close.

Infrequent use of 'hell''and "ass." Also note that there is an unlockable movie full of crude humor about farting and other human bathroom deeds.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Spyborgs is an action adventure game set in a futuristic world full of cyborgs and robots. There is one unlockable video about flatulence and bathroom humor. You control a cyborg who is fighting evil, laser-shooting robots.The violence is bloodless because you are fighting robots. There is some mild cussing.
Is It Any Good?
Some of the more massive enemy robots here are awesome to behold, almost like the big, bad bosses found in the God of War series. As you progress, you’ll gather more strength and upgrade your armor so you can match their power and wits. Heard it all before? That’s because there’s nothing particularly new in Spyborgs. That wouldn’t be so horrible. But there are also some minor problems with camera angles and Wii controls which make playing something of a chore. Plus, this game's difficulty ramps up quickly, making it hard win. You’ll find yourself re-doing the same battle so many times to win, that you might lose sight of why you began playing Spyborgs to begin with: to escape reality, be a superhero, and have a good time.
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.
