Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (6):

The graphics are average, the overall gameplay is not surprising, and the single-player experience is so-so. Where this game really shines, though, is when the computer-generated characters are replaced by real players (playing on one console). It makes for riotous fun if the whole family joins in. Some of the quotes may be beyond the grasp of younger players, as will some of the names of actors or movies; but that does not preclude younger players from logically placing letters to guess the words. Families can have a whole lot of fun with this title.

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.
