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.

Update for 2019: This is not the current version of the game

I just wanted to clarify for parents, that this version of World of Warcraft was the Legion expansion that was released in 2016. WoW in 2019 is a very different game, and if you want current reviews... you should look under World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth. I started playing WoW in 2007, and would currently NOT recommend it. See my review in Battle for Azeroth.

Too much consumerism

Fun for the family

When it comes to MMOs you can't go wrong with WoW, with age it's only gotten more casual friendly as well, less time needed to progress, certain character classes are much easier for younger children to play and plenty to do outside of the typical end game features expected from MMOs.

This title has:

Easy to play/use
