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.

Perfect game lives up to his name

The game presents a beautiful soundtrack and a heartwarming story that talks about a cursed family. The environnements are perfect and it’s abgreat game plain and simple. The game features lots but cartoonish violence. Splashes of blood are almost invisible and the blood doesn’t stain the environment, I recommend this game for preteens.
