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.

Lost song is better.

If you have a choice ; get lost song. This game isn't bad but it's not that good either. My chief problem are the sidequest; if it's not on the quest board or involving premier it's all cutscenes. I just played for about 2- 2.5 hours; I think 20 min was actual gameplay and the rest was the random quests that you just watch drag on. After a few of them you really start to wish there was a skip option or that you could leave the area without triggering another. One thing I love though is how good the character customization option is (even if the game treats you like kirito. I named myself suki, I'm a girl, and the story still treats you like kirito.). That parts great becuase unlike the others it's basically a full character and not just 5 options.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
