With beautiful graphics, a clever chorus, and ribald sense of humor, there's a definite audience for this out-of-the-ordinary sim. Astrologaster is quirky and unique, but not without its low points. Sitting through the madrigal chorus between patients is fun at first but begins to feel tedious as the story continues. In fact, the whole movement of the story is slow, and the extensive use of Elizabethan English may impact engagement for kids. It's not always clear how the choices made impact the outcomes, but some of that may be design. Astrologaster will likely have a high appeal to those who like British humor and absurd plotlines. For those looking for a real-to-life sim, this probably isn't the best choice.

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.
