Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

If your teen arcade game lover can stand all of the ads and USA Network references, the games on CHARACTERARCADE.COM are quite harmless and the avatar-style WeeMee-creating process can be quite fun. None of these games will win any innovation awards, but you'll find some creative twists (often related to USA shows, of course) on some stock arcade games. Up to now, the message boards aren't a big draw. Links to larger sites for USA shows and an NBC/Universal site are much more highly promoted. But if kids only want to play games it's easy to avoid the boards and these other related sites.

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.
