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 17+

PEGI 18 rating is completely reasonable.

Excesive amount of violence (despite the fact that game rewards you for not killing anyone): the scenes of neck-snapping, penetrating enemies with a blade etc. are not the only reason of PEGI 18 rating. Children under the age of 17 will not understand this game, they dont notice the fight between the police who straight up abuse a group of people and the people getting abused. The game explains the way terrorism works on practice, which is also not for kids. Also a lot of scenes of people lying dead, rotting after they died due to drugs, alcohol, poison etc. The scene of Rucker's death would alone make this game not for kids.
