Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the concept of death is mostly implied in this game. The violence is not visually realistic or graphic, but the emotional effects of knowing that villagers die or have their souls taken may be disturbing to sensitive players. You may want to pay attention to how younger players react to this aspect of the game.
Is It Any Good?
This game requires lots of strategy and patience to gain the skills needed to move to each new task and play level, and younger players may find it very difficult to stay through to the end, which is why the CSM recommended age is 13+. There are more options for fighting choices than in the usual role-playing game, a fact that can prove both challenging and frustrating. As the game progresses, the player can choose an increasingly complex combination of moves to win battles.
A player's guide is strongly recommended, and be prepared for a long-term investment of time to finish the game: 40 to 50 hours. This is not a quick-play, school-night kind of game, but is well-suited for long vacations.
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.
