A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
The message about whether to obey parking signs is mixed. Players try to get away with parking illegally as often as possible, which earns the player more money. On the other hand, players may issue tickets of their own if they notice parking infractions.
Positive Role Models
Players try to catch friends who have parked illegally in their parking lot, while parking their own cars in friends' lots. Players can issue tickets to each other with personalized messages.
Ease of Play
Parking Wars is menu-driven and extremely easy to play, with none of the micro-management required in many of the other simulation-oriented Facebook games.
Violence & Scariness
Players can use brick items to vandalize other cars and reduce their value to zero.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Parking Wars 2 is a simulation game played on Facebook that requires you to have other Facebook friends who are also playing this game. This requirement might encourage players to "friend" strangers. It is a sequel to the original Parking Wars game, which was based on the A&E reality TV show of the same name. This sequel has improved graphics, new power-ups and backgrounds, but gameplay is essentially the same. Many of the game's exclusive items require spending Facebook Credits.
Is It Any Good?
Despite the graphical overhaul and the addition of more decorations and power-ups, Parking Wars 2 still feels like an old-school Facebook game. Most social games require a certain amount of interaction with friends, but are enjoyable as a solo experience too, or give players the option of buying their way out of quests that require friend participation. Parking Wars, on the other hand, is no fun unless your Facebook friends are actively participating too. If you can get a group of friends together who enjoy the game enough to check in several times per day then Parking Wars does have some appeal, but as a solo excursion it's almost unplayable.
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.
