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.

great rts and great for learning

I play this game with my children a lot, they love it and it makes them think. They were failing their classes in the history of Rome at school, Given this, I got it and now they're interested in history. Just don't let them play online

OK for some tweens - but not for sensitive children

Great for learning strategic thinking and some history. This game sparked deep interest with my son in Roman History.
