Well, It is okay

NOT FOR KIDS!!!!!!! It is very bad and gorey. There's strange languages that are not human. Many drugs and beer. Again, NOT FOR KIDS!!!

Is It Any Good?

Most of the games in DINO HOSPITAL HD are harmless fun, and some are even educational (putting numbers in the correct order, matching objects to an eye chart). Many preschoolers will like choosing which dinosaur to assist and pretending to perform medical tasks such as giving shots, taking x-rays, or cleaning teeth.

On the downside, some of the sound effects border on annoying or scary -- many of the dinosaurs are crying, sirens are blaring, or the heart monitor is beeping in the background. There are also not many directions given and, while kids can often figure out what to do by what's happening on the screen, some games leave kids guessing. Finally, the app seems to have a crashing problem at times. Dino Hospital HD is a cute concept, but it could be improved.

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.
