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.

Pretty good

No worse than lord of the rings. Also teaches a lot about history.

Great historical lesson with some violence added

I've been disappointed to see the other reviews not mention any of the historical content in the game. Ubisoft has many historians working on the game and wrote a story that takes place in actual history. Some of the places have been reconstituted from archeological findings. I've played the game and while the combat is fun, story is ok - I've been blown away at the historical details. No other game will let you go inside an ancient Greek house, look at what regular people were doing, wearing, and eating. You can walk in the great library from Alexandria, visit the town, see what people were doing. There is a lot under the surface. Also while you can spend more money, nothing prevents you from doing the whole game without additional $$$.
