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.

Some Things the main review doesn't mention...

During our playthrough and within the first couple of hours you will notice some things. This made my wife and I stop playing this game on the Nintendo Wii straight away. There is a non player character who repeatedly uses the GD word every time your player character gets close to them before your character enters the "Neuro tower" the first time, this NPC is next to the character called the "Horny Woman". Many human type female enemy monsters inside the neuro tower are also in bikini type outfits, or are entirely topless with just their hair barely covering their chests while fighting your character. There is also a status/spell they can inflict you with that is sort of a lust type thing that transforms them and you into a blond human female that is completely nude and floats in the air wearing nothing and shows full frontal nudity with hands barely covering the private parts. I am a concerned parent and this should probably have been mentioned in the main review under the language and sex parts of the main review, especially since this much is found very early on in the game and there is no telling how much may be found later on the this title. Thank you for your time.
