ESRB iPhone App for Instant Rating Checks
There are many, many weird and wonderful iPhone Apps. Some are informative, some entertaining, and some are something altogether different. I like to think that this one falls somewhere – if tentatively – in the former.
I have to admit, I’ve never stood in GAME turning a game over in my hands, desperately wishing I’d checked the ESRB rating of a game before I came out. 1) I’m not in the States, 2) I don’t really care and 3) . . . well, it’s right there on the box, dude. That said, as a parent sometimes it’s useful to know what’s led to the rating decision. So whilst I might not be overly concerned myself, when it comes to buying games for my child or others, it might be helpful to know why a title like FairyTale Fights came out with a Mature (which I seriously don’t consider to be a mature gaming experience, fyi), whilst Mini Ninjas was seen fit for Everyone.
The ESRB App can be downloaded for free right now from the iTunes store.
