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.

Read this before you buy

I think this game is ok for 12 years there is not as much blood and gore as parts 6 or 4, besides there is a vulgar language that includes "f - k s-t" but it happens quite often on the other hand, there is almost no sex there, only in one dialogue there is a slight reference

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing

Very fun for adults, but mature themes and violence means not for kids

I can heartily recommend this game to other adults, but it's not for kids. As with other FC games, it contains mature themes and a great deal of language, drugs, and violence. It's not the same level of horrific sex and violence in, say, Grand Theft Auto V, but it's still enough that I can't say it's appropriate for kids. Characters swear profusely, make and take drugs, and generally do things that I'd only want an emotionally mature person (adult) to be simulating.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
