Summary: Parents need to know that Project Runway is based upon a reality TV show of the same name and, as such, becomes a gateway game to wanting to watch that teen-appropriate show. And although that TV show is far from the worst offender in reality-TV-land, it can at times sink into places of cattiness, name-calling, bleeped profanity, and diva fits which is why we suggest it for teens.
Excerpt: Do you want to be the world’s top fashion designer? Well, you can forget about four years of school and all the intensive labor. I became a top fashion designer in just two hours in Atari’s Project Runway for the Nintendo Wii. The premise of Lifetime’s Project Runway is to become the world’s next “hot” fashion designer. Within the video-game adaptation though, players take over the roles of designer, model and stylist.
