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.

Its Sooo Good!

Way better than the original, which despite its flaws i felt was kinda underrated. The step back to 2D really lets the devs tighten up thier platforming and level design; free of filler content and floaty impreciseness of the open areas/mechanics of the original. Thats all you need. The gameplay may be familiar but the level design is truly unique and absolutely brilliant. If youre gonna imitate, imitate the best; not the soulless AAA machine. No innappropriate content.
