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 game, but is difficult and is very complicated

Fracture is a great 3rd person shooter where you fight aliens called the "Pacificians". They are basically people dressed up from head to toe in a brown and green suit, and you do kill them with guns, fist and grenades, but they do not cry out in fear or in pain when they get shot, punched or exploded. The language is what you would expect from a T rated game with mild language. Language includes a**, d**n and he**. The game is pretty hard but you get used to it. There are some puzzles with something called the entrencher, but they aren't that specific and I had to Google some stuff.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much swearing

alright for tweens, not ok for kids under 10

It's a fine game, there is small instances of language, but it's nothing you can't teach your kids not to say.
