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.

"GAO" is a very well defined "space survival" with a good mix of fun and realism although the game is mostly about surviving a never ending barrage of aliens (many are creepy looking spider/bug things) its not as graphic as space horror games like dead space, and most of the gore is infact alien secretions used to show them "infesting" your ship as far as letting children play: if your child has seen the film starship troopers played 5 nights at Freddies or finds insects and aliens fascinating (like mine) they'll be fine playing this game if you worry about them playing a game, participate in it (so that you can see and judge for yourself) though as always a parent should use their own gut instincts when buying games for children

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much violence
