Super-challenging action RPG is also extremely bloody, gory.

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.

Its a great linear experience, combat similar to God Of War

The game itself in terms of innapropriateness, is not that bad. There is an option to either turn off blood or make it mild. There is only a few bad word in it, but they arent that bad, like bastard, and damn. The story is kind of hard. Its about as hard as cuphead, which if you know what cuphead is, then you know that is hard as hell. All in all if your chid has patience and has played God of War on give me God of War mode then it might be good for them.

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much swearing
