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.

Lots of smoking present in game

The common sense media rating does not mention the heavy use of tobacco during game play. Every time you start the app you are presented with a large image of an ash tray with lots of used up cigarette buds. The are also multiple instances of your in game character smoking in a large dark room with other people. There is also some language which includes sh-t and f--k. I would rate this game for teens due to the tobacco use.

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
