Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this game has a spooky theme without being too scary for the intended audience of 5- to 10-year-olds. It requires kids to use logic to figure out which character has the necessary abilities to get around a specific obstacle. Levels have multiple solutions, adding fun and replay value.
Is It Any Good?
This Berenstain Bears video game is spooky without being too scary for the targeted age. Gameplay is challenging, but never so difficult as to be frustrating. And while some players might get annoyed to get to the fourth game on a level and "die" (in this game, the character simply loses its courage and sits down and cries), kid testers didn't seem to mind having to replay the previous three games because the games have multiple paths to success.
As an added bonus, the game comes packaged with The Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat book.
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.
