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.

11 year old daughter loves it

My daughter plays this game a lot, and we play it together a lot as well! She needed help at first, but has been able to figure out how to do the levels mostly by herself since then. The gameplay mechanics can take some getting used to, but there are lots of explanations in the game that teach you how to play. I never let her play any games with violence before, but this one game has almost no violence, and doesn't seem any worse than the games I've let her play before. Overall, she has a very good time playing this game, and I enjoy watching her play it too. Violence is kept very tame, and it is a pretty challenging game, but children with a strategic mind should be able to handle it.

Amazing game- for kids 10 and up

I got the game for my 10-year-old son for Christmas. He has been playing it any moment he gets for the past few weeks, and has asked me about a few levels and how to complete them. The game can get challenging at times, and that is why it's 10 and up. If there was an easier mode, I think an 8-year-old could easily play this game because the violence is kept very minimal, and reminds me a lot of Super Smash Brothers on the violence level. This game is perfect for ages 10+ as long as you have a child who is decent at strategy games.
