Is It Any Good?

Our review:

While there's no question that DARK MEADOW is much too violent and scary for young players, those looking for a good scare and decent action could do a lot worse. Using the same graphics engine as the hit Infinity Blade, the game looks fantastic and features detailed, creepy monsters. What makes the game really stand out, though, is its story. More so than most games in the App Store, this game is as much about plot as it is action, with well-written and well-acted voice segments from your largely unseen in-game ally. Better still, the game doesn't repeat itself in that script.

The game's not without faults, though. When you die, you're sent back to the beginning (with your stats and items intact), but if you've progressed through several areas, that's more than a bit frustrating. And the battles are generally the same, and get old after a bit. The concerns are minor, though. Fans of action and horror games both are bound to find plenty to like here.

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.
