Excerpt: Throwing stuff away is rarely fun. Every sane person knows this. Surrounding yourself with the debris of wanton destruction is one of life’s little pleasures. At least, this is my world view. I suspect the developers of Trash Panic feel somewhat differently. See, Trash Panic is a game all about tidying up. Putting stuff in the bin. You win if you get everything in the bin, and lose if you drop any out. To be honest with you, kind reader, this is a vision of hell.
Green-minded game delivers good puzzles and lots of action.

Summary: Parents need to know that this is a downloadable puzzle game for the PlayStation 3 and that it has a green theme. It rewards players for responsibly disposing of garbage and retaining a small virtual carbon footprint. Conversely, it punishes players (in terms of a performance grade) for simply burning all rubbish and increasing toxic emissions. There is a modicum of violence in that flaming trash can result in powerful explosions that can flatten nearby buildings.
