Voodoo dolls and seances? How is that child appropriate?

Not age-appropriate at all. There is an island on the game (Spookane) where the player is expected to find voodoo dolls and then has to hold a seance in order to progress. I can't believe no other parent has noted this in the reviews and that this site thinks it's acceptable content for a child of any age.

Our family loves playing this game

This game is great. It's fun, it's challenging, it develops problem-solving skills, and best of all, it rewards helping others. The one bad thing is that it requires reading. So if your child doesn't read yet (like my 5-year old), someone older who can read needs to play with him or her.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (20):

While the emphasis on building made the original MySims game a bit of a chore, MySims Kingdoms is kept fresh by the mini-game challenges and delightful character interactions. You can talk to other Sims and hear them respond in their unique Sims gibberish language that is actually quite expressive and cute. Another nice touch is that Sims actually interact with the environment, including objects that you've added to it. Build a set of drawers, for example, and a Sim will rummage through them, occasionally turning up a trinket for you to keep. It's little touches like these that make MySims Kingdom a delightful and accessible simulation for a younger audience that perhaps isn't quite ready for the classic Sims games for PC.

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.
