In-depth fashion game is also a good business simulation.

Fun game, misses mark on inclusion.

Our whole family enjoys this game. I wouldn't mind fewer steps to get to the point, while the reading parts are great to encourage kids to read-it gets tedious when the characters have cycled through a few times. Nintendo also needs to give players the option to be either sex and shop for clothes for either sex. Our son likes the game, but doesn't want his character to be a girl.

Is It Any Good?

Style Savvy is a surprisingly in-depth game that goes far beyond just playing dress-up. The player is a business owner and must juggle the work and responsibilities that comes with managing a business. The game is also neatly set up to impart tips on how to play better by mixing and matching the right clothing elements and keeping up with the latest trends in the game's own fake fashion magazine. When you manage to put together an outfit that your virtual customer really likes, it's a strangely rewarding experience. A lot of effort went into the design of the game to make it as realistic a fashion-industry experience as possible (what other game has you scouring the booths of trade shows to find new products for your store?), and it shows. Fashion games may only appeal to players with very specific tastes, but if your child is one of those people, she or he will get a lot out of Style Savvy.

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.
