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.

More Tales please!

While it is not the best of the Tales series story wise (it seems to have a hard time making up its mind on where its going), this game has very entertaining and well developed characters which will make you want to play the game more than once. That an all the content such as cooking, mini games, and strategy will keep you playing for hours. Also like a huge majority of Tales games, there are central themes and moral values that serve as the core of the story.
