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.

Good fun

Basically a flight simulator for commercial aircrafts that focuses on the landing and taking off. It's not a 100% realistic simulator (of course), but good enough. You do not have to watch any Ads unless you want an additional 30% of the payoff after each successful flight. Progress can be really slow with 3 new flights every 30 minutes in order to earn $ to unlock new licenses and planes. Unless you want to pay, of course. Only complaint is the occasional usage of the word "damn" by the flight stewardess when the passengers feel extremely uncomfortable with your barrel rolls.

Informative, fun -- but definitely addictive

My 11 year old son loves this game. He has a tough time, though, turning it off. There is always another license or another route to finish. That said, there is no violence and the game play is more on the intellectual side, rather than other video games that excite the amygdala with shoot-em-up scenarios. He just asked for $2 or $5 to purchase flight credits which buy "licenses" so that seems like a red flag to me and I will be keeping an eye on things to make sure there is not constant upselling going on. (One of my friends had a 7-year-old run up a $50 debt on candy crush - the child did not understand what she was doing but still...) Anyhow, with reservations, I think the game is among the better choices for video games.

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much consumerism
