I just recently installed this game out of curiosity, and not that there is anything wrong with the game per se, but I have a problem with the inappropriate garbage and porn site links that other people have posted in forums. Sooo incredibly easy to click on something inappropriate, or just plain disgusting. My advice to parents would be, if you're going to allow your child to play ANY ONLINE INTERACTIVE OR STRATEGY GAMES, DO NOT ALLOW THEM ACCESS TO CHAT ROOMS, FORUMS, BLOGS, AND KEEP THEM FROM SHARING PERSONAL INFO ON PROFILES. Kids don't need to interact socially on these games anyway. There are lots and lots of adults who play these games and don't monitor anything they say. If they need social interaction, set up a playdate with a friend their own age who they KNOW--kids don't need to communicate with total strangers and creeps who troll the internet looking for unsupervised internet kids.

Is It Any Good?

It takes a while to warm up to Cartoon Wars, a game that would be a lot easier to play if the instructions weren't so poorly translated. But after playing for a while we could see its appeal. The object is to send forth enough stick-figure soldiers and shoot enough arrows from the top of your castle to stem an advancing army. Battles go on seemingly forever, as factions push back and forth. Adrenaline junkies will find it tedious.

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.
