Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ): has all the typical features of a virtual world, like games, chatting, and shopping. But it also has a complex -- and friendly -- community with a rich back story. Plus, there are creative touches like a virtual savings account, a citywide lottery, and a studio for mixing your own four-track superhero theme song. (You can put it on your UrboPod and embed it on your MySpace profile.) Teens who enjoy the challenge of learning sophisticated social games will feel right at home in Urbanville. Yes, there are games about farts and wedgies, but even superheroes can't be serious all the time.

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.
