What Are We Thinking?

First of all you are not KILLING the people. They are scientists being knocked over. What is CSM thinking they're just trying to rip this game. Although, I agree with the privacy and safety issue. OpenFeint tries too much to get you to join. Otherwise it's a fun game

Amazing but what about the violence glorified?

I have often played this game and has relatively like it but the fact that annoys me is the 'violence glorified'. There is so much fire, wrath, anger and anti-peace content glorified through this game. It is certainly fun for adults but a clear cut no for kids. On similar line, there is a game called ' Burt destruction'. I have thoroughly enjoyed myself while playing it. The storyline easily connects with the imagination and the fictional fairytale background my childhood has passed. The gameplay projects less violence and more fun.

Addicting

I have it myself. There is a machine called bad as hog that may or may not fly over heads. You do have many ways to die which may bother you. The scientists may be considered role models cause they don't get distracted by Barry . May teach about collecting money and spending saving, etc

Gambling encouraged

I have played this game several times and as a 39 year old dad with a degree in Communications and Interaction Design, you should NOT let any kids play this game. This may sound harsh, but the game actively encourages a gambling mentality by encouraging a risk-reward scenario which is not in the player's favor. In order to progress, you need coins which are, of course, an in-app purchase.
What other families should know
Too much consumerism
