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.

A delight for Mickey fans of All ages.

This was one of my favorite non-mario games when i was little. The only problem is the violence is spooky, and depressing, but it is only that THAT if you are 6 and under. Today, it would be rated E 10+ for Fantasy Violence

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much consumerism

I am very surprised to see the "Violence and Scariness" section only got 1 dot!!! This isn't a cute lil' Halloween special-kind of scariness. We're talking fun, popular Disney rides twisted, broken, and rusted beyond recognition (almost). We're talking fun, bouncy music from Disney rides distorted and mingled with spooky noises, like background music for nightmares. We're talking creepy animatronic versions of Donald, Goofy, and other beloved characters. And that constant reminder that Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is really the first Disney character, but got kicked to the background, kinda gives you a depressed feeling. There were so many ways Disney could've re-introduced Oswald and other forgotten Disney characters. Making those characters evil and distorting Disneyland into nightmare fuel was NOT a smart way to go about this. Either play this game WITH your kids, or get them something else.
