Is It Any Good?

Players may enjoy directing conversations, finding out where the storyline goes, and trying to decipher other people's personalities, but the scenarios are really for mature players only. In Love Island: The Game, players pair characters together and try to discuss their relationships over a series of episodes. Characters' feelings toward you are revealed in emoticons that appear after you speak, and the plot takes interesting turns at times. But to spend gems frequently on deluxe outfits or character interactions, though, you'll need to pay real money, because you only earn one gem per episode. Fortunately, your character's basic clothes are provided, and the conversations that cost gems aren't necessary to keep playing, so players should be able to watch and participate in episodes without cost -- at least for awhile. After finishing a few, you'll burn through the passes required to view them and will have to either wait for them to be replenished, or buy some with real-life money.

The viewing episode pauses are just one issue. Parents may not be crazy about the daytime drinking and sexually charged conversations that can occur. Characters discuss thinking other people have had sex, try to peek at a male contestant in the shower, and comment on how he looks naked when he exits it -- and that's just in the first few episodes. Some of the other behavior isn't great, either; two characters nearly get in a physical fight, and various female contestants seem frequently devious and jealous. Love Island The Game might serve as a fun way for adult fans of the show to experience what it'd be like to take part in it, but younger users would likely be better off staying ashore.

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.
