The Voice: I Want You offers a good mix of largely contemporary music and does everything you'd expect from a karaoke game. The varying difficulty modes make it accessible to a wide range of players, especially kids who don't have a great vocal range. It's fun both on your own and played with friends -- and the judges' comments are generally supportive, though largely superfluous. It's a fine family game, too, as the song lyrics aren't especially worrisome, and the background videos only show people singing and won't make parents of young kids uncomfortable.

Unfortunately, the song count isn't especially robust. The game starts you with more than 20 songs, which isn't bad, but aside from unlocking a few songs by completing a season, there's no adding to it. And, if you were hoping to see Christina Aguilera or Blake Shelton or any of the other people from the show, they're not there. It's quickly apparent that the game licensed the name of the hit show and little else. Plus, rather than paying for the rights to the songs by the original artists, the game uses cover versions that aren't always up to par. The result gives a players a glimpse of the show but doesn't shine under its bright lights.

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.
