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.

Inappropriate Language

As fun as this game is, after digging through other posts online, I figured out how to turn ALL sound effects and commenting. So this game DOES have inappropriate language (no matter what age) and is not described in the rating. "Back to the bitch" specifically stood out as just overall inappropriate... come on creators... its 2022!!
