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.

Suitable for ages 7

This is a very fun game. And kids are suitable for playing this. But there is only low sex.

Sorry to keep you waiting!

Pit is finally back after 20 years in Nintendo's birdcage. The wisecracking angel makes his return on Nintendo's newest handheld, the 3DS. I'm going to make it simple. This game is good. There are some issues, but it is a very fine game. The graphics are crisp, the dialouge is hilarious, and you'll find that by the end, you'll want to do it again. This game is packed with things to do. Side missions can be played and various weapons can be created, leading to hours of replayability. The contro;s are difficult for a bit, but once you get used to them, they work like a dream. There was simply no other way to play this game with two analog sticks. The story is simple. Pit has to defeat Madusa and her army of darkness, who want to take over Skyworld and rule over the humans. Pit meets a colorful and witty cast of characters in his journey, even coming face to face with his dark half! Pit solves all of his issues with violence because honestly, they'd rather turn him into a shrimp and eat him! In conclusion, get this game. It's fun, and it deserves to be in your collection.
