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.

Play Monster Hunter. Cause this is just a clone of that but after 10h it gets boring as you are just replaying all the monsters at slightly higher level. Monster Hunter: World is free on Xbox game pass and I’d much rather play that than this. However, with Monster Hunter’s more mature themes and Dauntless’s ease of play, this might be the ticket for young tweens.

I play this game with my son and it is great

first I want to say that commence has consumerism at 4 out of 5 which I think is crazy it should only be at 2 or 3 out of 5. But like I said in the title I play it with my son and we have a blast working together to take down behemoths . I am not a big fan of shooters because you shoot other people just trying to have fun playing a game but you can even hurt your team so you just work together to save the world. I think this dauntless is great for kids that just want to try a new game for free.

Great role models
