Frantic, mature action is fun despite content issues.

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.

This game is really fun, the only problem is the voice chat, which I believe can be turned off.

For example, my son was playing this game, and after avoiding gunfire on a bridge a Swedish gentleman called him a very rude curse word.

Not so bad..Not so *good.*

This game is awesome; Hands down might even be the best realistic game. Call of duty is better though imo) Idk about the game, it’s a little over 13/12+ (Unless your child is mature) for a battle royale game. Anyway, the game basically like fortnite and call of duty, “apex”, etc. you drop down with a parachute and land on…*land* ofc. You run around like little kids searching for weapons, melees, and throwable weapons such as Grenades, Molotov, etc. The safe zone decreases its size so players should be careful and pay attention or they basically get…eliminated! No chicken for them.. :( Anyway, this game is pretty addictive so I recommended setting up a screen time for 2-6 hours…(12 if you don’t give a sh!t) So anyway, that’s all I have to say. Thanks for reading this.

Easy to play/use
