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.

This game is EXTREMELY violent

This game should be BANNED for being so violent. It has excessive amounts of blood. The game doesn't focus on friendship, only killing people with guns and axes. At some points, the enemies shoot you, which is not nice. There is a lot of language in this game and it should only be played by people over the age of 18.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
age 14+
This is one of the best Xbox games out there in this game there is over the top violence and language but it is fine for people 14 and up also may I add it is just great and entertaining as all hell.
