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.

(Buy,Rent,or Skip?) [BUY]

It is a violent game but even though there is blood, most of the time it looks like SAND(aside from the humans).Small bits of bad language creep in on rare occasion.The rest is just depending on the kid.If they can tell the difference between fantasy and reality and are not easily impressionable it is fine.This is one of our family favorites but if you are looking for easier difficulty get the special edition.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Great messages
Great role models

This is one of the best games i own. i let my kids play it and there fine.Sure there is a lot of violence but nothing you wouldnt see in a T rated game.Both common sense and ESRB are wrong.
