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.

The Caped Crusader at his best.

Batman has come to life. The best superhero game ever made. Stealth and gadgets are the best aspects. You get Robin, Catwoman, Joker, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Ra's and Talia al Ghul, Clayface, Mr. Freeze and many more. It is a dream come true for comics fans, and spanning over more than 50 years, I am sure the comic fraternity would looove this! Kids get the best role model they can have. There is a little bit of maturity which I am sure the kids of the 21st century can handle. :3

Probably the best Arkham game in the series!

Holy cow, this game is amazing! It's got an interesting story, cool characters, and fun gameplay! In terms of violence, it's mainly just comic book violence, basically what you would see in your average superhero movie. In terms of sexual content, it's really not that bad. Common Sense Media says that people have conversations about sex, but chances are, you won't hear them. Those conversations are random conversations the thugs around the city can have, and there are a ton of possibilities for those, so there is little chance that your kids will hear them, and even if they do, it's nothing a mature kid/teen can't handle. And there's one building with a sign suggesting it's a strip club, but there's nothing you do in there, the building is just there, nothing else. The language is about PG-13 rating. I think if your kids are Batman fans, and they can handle the above, they'll love this game!
