Wizarding World tale is fun, less magical than the books.

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 representation!

I'm absolutely loving the representation. So far in my play through there has been a transgender person, and a blind person (who is a student at the school). As someone who is disabled, I really love the representation being shown. Some of the battle scenes can be intense for those who are more sensitive, but so far the quests seem to be appropriate.

I don’t get why this game is for teens. My 8-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter love this game! I would rate it eight plus because my 6-year-old found it too complicated. I would rate this four stars because: There are a lot of character-creator options There are diverse characters (ex., Natty) The graphics are great!! It has a lot of options to play on But I did take away a star because: I found some things too hard to figure out by searching up It isn’t out on Nintendo Switch yet They don’t have my daughter's type of hair The accent is mainly British, which bothers my Italian husband There is no “free play option.” Yeah, but also, there is no romance, so I’m good with this game for 8+
