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.

Not for the Fainthearted or People that Don't Like Gore

I marked it as easy to play/use. That said, if your kid cannot handle watching R-rated movies, or you do not allow them to watch R-rated movies or anything with large amounts of virus and gore, keep them away from this. There are scenes with asylum treatments that EXACTLY match the kinds of things they did in the Middle Ages through the early to mid1800s in explicit detail, and there's at one point a child with a transected torso, among other things. As a child, my mom never censored movies- I watched the Shining when I was in first grade and was fine- but if your child is easily affected by movies or games, keep them away. Teens- much more likely to be fine with this game, but if they don't like horror movies, they won't like this

This title has:

Great role models
Easy to play/use
age 18+

Very mature

Do not make your kid under 18 play this game. It is 18 plus. There is blood and gore,horror sequences and enough things to give person a nightmare

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism
