Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (12 ):
Kids say (49 ):

Thankfully, when Tech Deck made the leap from reality to virtual reality, the fingertip skaters transformed into real people, albeit heavily-stylized cartoon skaters. But the philosophy hasn't changed: show off skating tricks without the risk of falling. The danger is removed, but so is the exercise component and some of the fun. The site does best when it doesn't try to be too cool. From the looks of the sample game Dodging Traffic, a Frogger-inspired challenge that's super fun to play, the site should be a big hit with younger skater boys and girls.

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.
