Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Though the story takes its theme too literally at times, character dynamics and mystery keep this "game" mildly interesting. Rules of the Game has broken one rule and made the world part of the theme, instead of exploring the theme through the world. Due to this, the plot and characters are a bit underdeveloped and one-dimensional.

Rules of the Game makes the observation about the effects of workplace toxicity and sexism/sexual politics on corporate culture. Though the sex and violence make this show obviously not for kids, parents could use it as an opportunity to discuss with older kids if and how they see these themes play out in real life.
