Great game while it was still up!

It was a great game with such a great community. I made great friends there whom I sadly never will get to meet again. Only problem was there was so little options in the clothing and furniture catalogues for non-members to choose from.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The Space Heroes Universe virtual world may be a bit confusing for younger kids at first -- there are lots of places to go, and finding the activities in each section isn't always easy. However, once kids find them, the instructions are fairly clear. To graduate from the site's space academy and zoom off into space, kids are encouraged to reach certain goals. They get to shoot at asteroids and other objects in the visually impressive, easy to navigate, games. The site also contains some additional activities, like a printable PDF with science experiment instructions on growing crystals at home. Parents can pick whether kids have open (albeit filtered) chat capabilities or can only use pre-written phrases like "Howdy."

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.
