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.

age 15+

This is pushing the Teen rating

This is a dance game where you basically copy cat the moves that are shown to you on the screen. There are plenty of suggestive dance moves including guys shaking their pelvis area and women shaking their breast. Some songs also have suggestive hip movement as well. There is some language such as damn, hell, ass, and words that are blooped out like " f*ck who you want and f*ck who you like" but are blooped out like on the radio. Some of the worst lyric phrases in this game are " I've got passion in my pants and I'm not afraid to show it " " Man she's really got some boobies" There is no explicit language but you can clearly know what word they are blooping out. My rating: 15+ for lyrics and some suggestive dance moves. I am not saying this is appropiate for all 15 year olds but in general its ok.

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much sex
Too much swearing
