A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
The mini-games are competitive and while cheating is not an element of the game, players will perform in some events that should not be emulated in real life. In one scene, paparazzi will chase the player's character and the goal is to avoid them. This means weaving in and out of traffic in a manner that violates the rules of the road.
Positive Role Models
Players should never try some of the stunts performed by their in-game avatars. The hosts of the mini-games are slightly sarcastic, but present their games in a fun way.
Ease of Play
The game seems like it should be easy to learn and the instructions are very straightforward, but actually performing the moves to score the highest point totals is challenging.
Violence & Scariness
The violence in the game is presented with cartoon-like animation qualities that make elements like causing vehicles to explode more amusing than horrifying. The game also will have players launch their in-game characters with a slingshot and try to splat against targets. This is all done in a light-hearted manner.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
As players succeed, they will unlock the ability to star in commercials. In one such commercial, the model is seen washing a car and wiggles her butt provocatively at the camera.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this game requires the PlayStation 3 Eye and Move motion controller in order to play this game. The mini-games are of the type that might be featured in reality TV shows and will require players to work their arms and hands to perform motions to emulate movements on the screen. You can place your own photo on the head of your avatar, and compete with others in multiplayer mode.
Is It Any Good?
While it is exciting that TV Superstars uses the Move controller, the game is hampered by having so few mini-games to play -- there are only four. The way that a player can put his or her face into the game is rather remarkable, and adds to the fun. The game responds well to the motion controls and the overall video quality is bright and colorful. The game's hosts are upbeat, and slightly irreverent, and the games are engaging -- to a point. The repetition, though, can get a bit old. Still, TV Superstars sets a solid foundation for a new type of party games.
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.
