Slender-Man, slender plot, and not even paper-thin fun.

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.

age 13+

Pointless but also very scary

Let me just say this is a great game, in fact one of my favorites. But it is pretty pointless to some degree. I think that people are (especially critics) are very harsh on this game because it is repetitive, which it is. It can also be very frustrating because you have no way to fight any of Slendys zombie like minions. And believe me it gets annoying when they get you because you have to start the level over again which is one reason why this game is repetitive. But never underestimate Slender man because he is one scary dude. He comes out of know where (as do his minions) and it is just so scary when that happens and another thing to note is that this game is very scary and that is why I put the age rating so high because it scared the sh** out of me at times! The last thing I well leave with is well the story is actually really good but you kind of have to paste it together off of notes and simmingly random items you pick up along the way. Oh and one last thing Slender man's minions are pretty freaky looking but not over the top freaky.
