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.

Great offroad racer.

DIRT 2 is a great offline racer which is too difficult for younger kids. There is no real violence in this, Just implied violence. When you crash the car rolls over and there are grunting noises. You can also hit people and ram them over the road. The language is very moderate when you have radio music in the background and the announcers say a few iffy bits.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
