Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

If you've ever talked back to the characters in your favorite books, comics, TV shows, or movies, this is probably the experience for you. Charisma - Interactive Comics lets you join in on the fun and have your say in what happens, even if it doesn't really feel like you have a huge impact on the story. But it might be enough for fans of the medium to enjoy. There's lots of pressure on players to choose a certain course of action ("Next time try refusing to give a name ... "), and it often seems like input you provide is the "wrong" answer. There are also moments when your answers aren't accepted. For example, when you choose to order from a menu in a coffee shop, the game scolds you for your high-end taste in coffee. Things like that make the experience less pleasant than it otherwise could be. There are some fun aspects: Choosing who you want to pretend to be when you're answering questions is definitely kind of cool. All in all, Charisma - Interactive Comics is an enjoyable way to spend some time, even if it isn't perfect.

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.
