A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this game.

Positive Messages

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 & Representations

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.


Players can use brick items to vandalize other cars and reduce their value to zero.


Players can write personal messages on tickets that may contain sexual references.


Players can write personal messages on tickets that may contain strong language.


Parking Wars is a tie-in to the A&E TV show of the same name. Many exclusive items can only be bought with Facebook Credits. You can only really play this game if you have friends who are also playing.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Players can write personal messages on tickets that may contain references to drinking, drugs, or smoking.

What 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.

What's it about?

In PARKING WARS 2, players earn money by parking cars on their friends' streets, and by giving tickets to cars that are parked illegally. The game is always running, which encourages players to check in frequently in order to move their cars out of illegal parking zones and to catch friends parking illegally in their own spaces. Money earned through parking for a certain amount of time, or by giving out tickets, is spent to buy new cars, power-ups, and -- new to Parking Wars 2 -- backgrounds and buildings for their street.

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.

  • Families can also talk about how Facebook games like this one encourage you to get Facebook friends involved in playing this game. Why does the developer want that to happen? How does that developer make money on this game?
