Description of Barbie Super Model
One of the very first games designed for young girls, Barbie Super Model is a fun game starring the world's most recognizable doll.
The objective is simple: help Barbie become the world's best model. The game is essentially a collection of action games, none of which is particularly innovative, but all appealing to young girls. There are two main action sequenes: getting Barbie from her house to various places in a car, and helping her post on a catwalk.
When Barbie is on the road, the sequence is strikingly similar to Disney's earlier Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, including familiar roadblocks, other cars, and other obstacles. When Barbie gets to the studio, your job is to help her perform on a catwalk. This is a simple memory game: in Barbie's dressing room, you will first be shown a sequence of where she should walk on a real catwalk. You can practice for as long as you want to memorize the sequence, then it's time to choose a dress for Barbie and face the spotlights.
The game is definitely not groundbreaking, although it does an admirable job of keeping girls interested. Hi-Tech Expressions could definitely have leveraged the brand a lot more (e.g. including Barbie's actual doll apparel in her wardrobe), but as it stands, it's not bad. Girls will likely enjoy the "side" features, e.g. choosing clothes for Barbie, more than the actual game.

Barbara, a young girl from Malibu, dreams big - to be a Supermodel, to set the highest trends and be an inspiration to so many girls like her...
Now, Barbie is on her meteoric ascension to become fashion's biggest star! Help her make her way to the top by practicing the catwalk, keeping up with the newest fashion&beauty trends and rebrand her image as a strong, independent fashionista!
The game is challenging your memory, training you patience, teaching you safety rules, all while giving you an insight to what it takes to be a Supermodel! It also features uplifting music, chique looks and fabulous outfits! What else can a girl wish for?
Barbie- Supermodel has many educational features for your children, such as teaching them to drive safe, practice to perfection, be a model citizen to be a fashion model, and that you can't run over a pedestrian to get that shopping bag ( the latter may turn very useful for girls who want to become supermodels) !
As Van Halen said, ''There's a long way to go if you wanna rock 'n' roll!''

Barbie, like a lot of the popular girls, gets a lot of flak, entirely undeserving. Having fun and being who you are is a great attitude to have in life. Go Barbie!

Nice, with good music! Especially the longest track. That is awsome!
