Is It Any Good?

The nostalgia emanating from BROKEN AGE is almost overwhelming. It's a love song to the classic days of computer games from one of the best developers of the point-and-click adventure. And it does a good job of intriguing players, who want to know how the two very different stories eventually combine. But whether you'll like it really depends on your gaming history.

Those who have played the older games might feel at home, figuring out the right order in which to do things and the slow pace. Younger gamers, though, may get frustrated or bored. There's plenty of whimsy in the games, a trademark of developer Double Fine, but there aren't a whole lot of laugh-out-loud moments, which is kind of disappointing. And the cliffhanger ending (the game is Part 1 of two) makes the whole thing feel a bit incomplete.

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.
