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.

Truly immersive and challenging game

We found the introduction to this game with our PS4 VR disk and I was hooked right away. So glad the full game sooner than hoped! My daughter (9, ASD) LOVES watching me play and begs me to play on her own. The surrounding scenery is worth exploring. This game uses the VR technology to good effect. There are puzzles where you need to look around corners to find the solutions. You use dual controls for this game. The left stick moves Quill around and the motion sensor for the controller moves a blue ball around. Use L2 and R2 to interact with an object with your blue ball (heal Quill, move puzzle pieces, move enemies, turn pages, and more). Quill is an admirable main character. She is brave and determined. She gives the player encouragement along the way as well. The only potential downside for some is that she goes against direction instructions to follow her uncle into danger. In my mind, this is a good quality, but younger kids might not be able to make a distinction on whether that's good or not. I'm thoroughly enjoying myself and expect I'll play through it several times.
