Parents Need to Know
What's it about?
Parents may be interested in downloading coupons for special deals on meals or game tokens. Kids will want to head directly to the Game Gallery. At the time of review, it featured a summery beach theme. In \"Crab Grab,\" you try to net as many crabs as you can within the allowed time period. In \"Skateboard,\" players help Chuck maneuver his skateboard through an obstacle course. Other games include a tic-tac-toe challenge, a memory match, and an interactive guitarist feature. There's also a \"good grades\" calculator; restaurants give game tokens as rewards for great report cards. The funniest part of the site is in the \"Movies\" section. There, you will be entertained by music videos featuring (among others) a Britney Spears sound-alike dressed up like a chicken, singing the pop hit \"Crazy,\" with a spin on the lyrics. Additionally, users can rate Chuck E. Cheese TV commercials.
Is it any good?
The games are fun for youngsters, but it's impossible to ignore the many Chuck E. Cheese promos. Note that if you have pop-up blocking software installed, you can (and will probably have to) click on a special link on the home page to go to the pop-up–free version of the site.
