Did we miss something on diversity?

The game is based on violence, but it is not with malicious intent , it is a sport and should be treated as such, I spoke to my 10 year old son about the game, and told him that these actions are part of a job and he knew that. Understanding is key. But it is a good game with many famous fighters.

Song choice is key

This game is really solid. The mechanics are not too hard for anyone to pick up, and the violence is just about on par with any other fighting game, albeit this is more realistic. The only problem parents could run into are the songs that EA has picked. POA by Future recites the n-word multiple time, which could be offensive to some. As well as other songs saying, b*tch, @ss and sh*t. Otherwise, very solid fighting game.
