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 game, ok for mature teens.

The game has a lot of violence: the player can cut throat's with a knife, use a bow to kill from the distance, soldier's can be seen burning and around blood slops. Unfortunately, the characters use a lot of profanity, mostly the F**k, and s**t word's. But, overall, the game have a positive message about the sacrifices that the soldier's need to make to complete their missions, and that what can saves us is not advenced technology, but the power of the human spirit. The graphics where also very good, it looked like next gen games in the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Amazing Graphics, for the mature minded

I'm 20, I have younger brothers 13 and up, and they are fine playing the game. The ceph are a little scary to smaller kids like 13 and under. The grahics are incredible, and the gameplay is great in both singleplayer and multiplayer. This game has strong language, it has all the words in the book. What everyone won't tell you is that you can turn the speech off, and disable subtitles. Now you can still hear the cool sound effects and gunshots, you just don't need to hear the overly excessive and purely unnecessary cursing the game has to offer. I also recommend this fps game as all others for children who are mature enough to know the difference between a game and reality and know how precious human life really is. The violence is ok, just some blood and shooting, the aliens will explode sometimes but they kind of look like giant pink gummies in armor. There are scenes from crysis 2 that show prophet killing himself (shot head) which shouldn't be seen by younger kids/ immature kids.
