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.

Be the Detective and solve the mystery.

This is an enjoyable game, but it does involve a bit of patience, reading and understanding, and learning how to use some of the tools acquired in the game. As mentioned above, it is very much an interactive Where's Waldo and I Spy type of game where you are in the role of a detective, and you just need to find items on a list. Sounds easy, huh? Sure, as long as you read along with the story. As you read it explains the tricks of using some of the tools you obtain, like a magnifying glass, flashlight, and so on. You can set up various profiles, and even do a quickplay, but if you want to solve the mystery, plenty of time and patience must be available to make it happen. You know, time and patience can be fun. I completed the game, my nephew preferred the quick play.
