Is It Any Good?

CastleVille is a robust sim that gives players lots of different things to do and plenty of room to expand -- and it looks great too. However, ultimately players will have to make the same old choice: do they pay real cash to continue playing, or watch the game slowly grind to a halt as the requirements for completing buildings and quests make more and more demands on the player's time and Facebook friends. CastleVille can be spammy too, unless you manually disable the game's ability to automatically post updates to friends' walls.

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.
