Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while this game is about good triumphing over evil, the player does a lot of fighting. The game exposes you to swordfighting, bows and arrows, and other weapons as you move through this exciting world. But the blood is minor.
Is It Any Good?
Unfortunately, the game's majesty wears thin when you start to play because of software issues that make playing the game much more difficult than it should be. Even in the early, much easier stages of the game, the camera has you looking at a barrier instead of switching you to face your giant ogre opponent eye to eye. You lose precious time by having to move one of the controller sticks around until your opponent is in front on you.
Once immersed in gameplay a few hours in, you have to move back and forth between areas far too often to complete quests. This not only takes away from the action, it hurts the flow of the story as well. This is especially sad because the story and dialog are often engaging, even compelling. You must switch often between characters to kill some of the harder foes, and the switching, done by pressing a controller button or two, isn't quick enough. Even when it is, you run into those awful camera issues. Also annoying is the fact that only the cut scenes have spoken dialog. The rest is text read on the screen.
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.
