Is It Any Good?

The graphics are clean and simple, but realistic, and the games lack complexity: There's usually one stated goal for each game, such as make as many baskets as possible or be the first car to cross the finish line. Several traditional bar games, such as darts and bar bowling are available, and most have a bar setting, complete with full mugs of beer. Also, card games such as Texas Hold 'em poker are available and players use betting chips to wager against other players (both real and virtual).

For the most part, the games are simple, nonviolent, and not as competitive as most console sports programs.

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.
