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.

Great for kids just beginning to play video games

My 6 yo loves this game. We rented it and I was very pleased that there were absolutely no questionable scenes or any hint of violence. It's easy to understand how the game works and what you're supposed to do, and once you master the basics, each level is progressively harder, but requires the same skill set. This was a great way for my son to see that "practice makes you better" and to feel like the game wasn't "too hard" for him. It's simple and fun, great for younger kids.
