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 action, story, & content filter

"Gears: Judgement" is an interesting installment into the "Gears of War" franchise. It features two seperate stories - one brand new and the other a continuation from the "Gear of War 3" storyline. The new story is fantastic with an amazing new look to the graphics. The gameplay is also crisp and fun. Multi-player verses and co-op is back making this a nice package for Gears fans. CONTENT SUMMARY: I've always applauded the "Gears of War" games for offering kids and adults CHOICE. There is a blood and gore filter and a strong language filter which allows for you to tailor the game to your preferences. It has been a work in progress since the first Gears game and this may be the best one. Why more companys don't do this is beyond me. The filter works wonders. Without the filter be warned. There is plenty of strong profanity and the blood and gore is heavy. Body parts fly from grenades and chainsaws and blood flows from the barrages of bullets. It earns its "M" rating. But again, if that's not what you want you can turn it off in the options menu. It's a great feature.
