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.

Excellent action rpg

Brutal swordplay and moderate gore (dismemberment is mostly to creatures/animals). Otherwise no mature content. Exceptional RPG build mechanics, robust combat and rewarding exploration. What it lacks in Skyrim's storytelling and accessibility it easily makes up for in gameplay depth and fun.

Amazing, for tweens

Amazing game, I think it’s fine for tweens. No bad messages not many good ones either but really good game all together. No worse than lord of the rings
