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.

This is completely inappropriate

This game is completely inappropriate and when my child age 6 showed me this I was horrified. This is a dark time and there is no need to joke about the coronavirus. This game should be taken down immediately and the developers of this game are sick for inventing such a dark and horrifying game.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism
