Is It Any Good?

Plan It Green is a nice looking, accessible game that does it's part in raising awareness; players will be exposed to the concepts of wind farms, smart grids, hydro plants, as well as a few of the complexities of city planning. If you're looking for groundbreaking gameplay or in-depth analyis of environmental issues, this isn't the game. And that's a good thing, because the familiar style of play and absence of preachy and teachy tone make Plan It Green a nice experience.

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.
