Too Risky

The site has been known to be riddled with predators and the admins never do anything much about it, i'd personally not go to this site as its a danger to kids. it's quite disappointing when you see a site that could have potential but it is ruined by admin decisions to not hunt down the alleged predators.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism

Avoid this site

I spent alot of time and money on this site.Everyday i see trash talk posted with extreme vulgarity and think to myself i am glad my kids don't play here and read this.They send me a prefered member message and a day later suspend my account.They say it's for breech of conduct guidelines.So i appeal it and told them i said nothing to anyone.Their response was they wanted my attention and it was a question about a purchase i made over a week before.I told them they got paid on the spot and never questioned about anything.They dealt with me with arrogance and disrespect.I will never use their site again and hope to warn off others by posting this here.90% of their games are couch potato material "mindless". Armor games is way better and not all about kreds in their pockets.Send a message to the Russians that respect goes a long way and they should try to practice some when dealing with Americans.

Is It Any Good?

Most gaming portals are a mixed bag, but Kongregate's rating system -- and its policy of "hiding" games with bad ratings -- helps steer users toward the best offerings -- like the deceptively addictive "Dolphin Olympics" and the beautifully illustrated "5 Things" puzzle game (both of which, incidentally, are completely G-rated). Some of the forum threads (particularly "serious discussions") can get a bit heavy or hostile for teens, so it's smart to stick with what the site does best -- gaming.

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.
