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.

Was one of the kids who played the original as a beta tester!

My goodness, I don't know why I looked this up again after all these years, I simply adored this game! I used to live in Beltsville, Maryland and while I did the developer came to my town and I was one of the lucky test group that got to play this game raw! From what I remember about it, this game was pretty darn good thought the lesson the game taught took a back seat to my gamer mentality I spent many long hours into the night playing on the game even long after I'd been told to go to bed.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use
