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.

Good FPS Halo like game

I don't know Why they didn't say it had no swearing! I have the app and through the campaign you hear "Get that B***erd!" The more bad guys there are the more you hear it. There is some blood. Multiplayer is good. There is no chat. So no swearing in multiplayer. 15 and up 4 single player.
