This deliciously creepy puzzler is beautiful to look at (just like its predecessors in the series), intriguing to explore, and -- most of all -- rewarding to solve. The Room: Old Sins provides just enough challenge to keep things interesting without introducing puzzles that feel impossible to solve. There's some repetition in the puzzle mechanics, but that only serves to make the player feel like they're growing in mastery. Each dollhouse room you unlock is an intricately designed part of the story that makes you want to continue, even if the true plot doesn't pique your interest. There are some darker elements involved, making it more appropriate for older kids, but it's also a game many families will enjoy exploring together.

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.
