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.

Expansion is still an acquired taste.

The game sticks to its guns about non violence even with new enemy packed missions and expanded combat options. Even then 90 percent of the game is hiking and rare lethal combat is only somewhat bloody when fighting humans. Ghostly enemies have no graphic detail obviously. There are a few bloody/disturbing scenes, mostly toward the end.
