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.

Arrrgh! ( A shout to parents out there!)

This game is wonderful. The graphics are great for a oldies, despite that it is a remake, and is loaded with historical facts. Great for those who want to let their kids have fun AND learn at the same time. Happy Pirating!

My kids don't actually do much of the playing. When there are battles, they just fire the guns. But they do love hunting down Blackbeard.

Too much violence
