Excerpt: Continuing the now apparent legacy of mediocre Bratz games, Girlz Really Rock is the third game on the Wii to star the 4 pre-teens famous from the line of kids dolls and merchandise. Despite poor critical reception of the previous titles, this next outing has no improvements for the series and instead simply rides on the already done-to-death music and characters similar to the popular film High School Musical.
Excerpt: Bratz Girls Really Rock on the Nintendo DS has the honor of bad timing. With the debt bubble bursting, and families crimping down on spending, a game that dwells on excessive shopping will probably not go over very well. The depth of the Bratz girls in this video game is in a word - shallow. What it comes down to for me is the target audience. I hope to answer the question - are the lessons in Bratz Girls Really Rock appropriate for young girls?
Excerpt: Think of Bratz: Girlz Really Rock as an interactive toy and you'll be able to overlook its many flaws. The biggest issue is the generally poor appearance. Sure, the characters look like the toys, but it would have been nice to see them made a bit more attractive. At least they could have spent more time designing the various elements of the game...
Summary: Based on the upcoming doll line and animated movie, Bratz Girlz Really Rock will feature an exciting story line and a full range of activities including live music performances, a makeover station with the latest make-up and hairstyling choices, a fashion design suite as well as skydiving and miniature golf to play with a friend.
