A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Kids are placed in the postion of a hero and asked to defend the world.
Positive Role Models
Players take on the role of a warrior trying to save the world. They'll interact with characters from various Cartoon Network shows, each with their own personalities.
Ease of Play
Gameplay is controlled by mouse and keyboard, or with a controller. Characters are easy to control, and the game is designed to be played in half-hour bursts, decreasing the success and results if you play for longer periods of time.
Violence & Scariness
Players are battling monsters with laser weapons, swords, and grenades. Some characters have special attacks like a Snot Rocket which shoots out green goo. There is no blood or gore, but players will hear cries of agony. Players do not die but are knocked out.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) that promotes moderation in playing online games by making it less rewarding - less advancement and less loot - after about a half hour session. Kids get to play as a hero and battle monsters to save the world while interacting with Cartoon Network characters. The game is free to play, but only through paid subscription is the whole game opened up.
Is It Any Good?
With laser guns and lightsabers to use to destroy slime monsters, jump pads to leap on for travel, and your favorite Cartoon Network characters there to interact with, young gamers will find this a fun to play MMO. The missions can be somewhat disgusting in subject matter (boogers and port-a-pottys) but just edgy enough to appeal to the target audiance of tweens. Parents will appreciate the parental controls, the highly moderated forums, and the game design which creates less rewards the longer a child remains online playing the game.
Like all MMOs, Fusion Fall encourages you to make friends by trading things and banding together to complete tough missions. Parental controls allow chat to be controlled by drop-down menu chat, however, open chat is available through the paid subscription. FusionFall is browser-based and accessed through the game's official website, http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/games/fusionfall-heroes/index.html. As it is streamed over the Internet, there isn't any voice-over, so quite a bit of reading is required. Favorite cartoon characters may look different than what you are used to, as they have all been changed slightly for a more uniform graphical look in keeping with the theme of FusionFall.
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.
