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.

Gory, Violent Zombie awesomness

Dead Island Riptide is technically a great game. The graphics are super good and it really makesthe game come to life. But this is the problem! Children are still growing and absorb all this information. Creatures like Zombies could scare them silly! Its Gory, Bloody and Violent making it a brilliant game, but is a bit too mature for young children.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 12+


It is super fun and if you child watches the walking dead it is fine.
