Goofy arcade game surprisingly violent; some blood.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

EXTINCTION SQUAD is a game that's meant to be tongue in cheek (that's immediately made obvious when you see the game's hero -- a muscle-bound "Chuck" Darwin, an obvious reference to the creator of the theory of evolution). The short story, explaining why animals are trying to kill themselves, is also especially silly. But for a game that, at a quick glance, seems kid friendly, there's a lot of unexpected violence.

Adults might get a good chuckle at the game, though -- and the Breakout-style gameplay is well done. It's an absurd title, and not suited for young kids, but it's one that will keep you playing.

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.
