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.

Wonderful, good for eight grade and above really!

Just great! The only reason I recommend it to older kids is that they would have a more standard idea that what is portrayed in the game is not completely real. It's like the teens getting annoyed at the middle schoolers for thinking that they're all that. High school does not always reflect what is portrayed in the game and even though it is a very friendly Nancy Drew game it might scare or give younger children ideas. It really is wonderful game though. I've played it myself and I think it is one of the best that HER has ever put out! A real 10 out of 10.
