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.

I KNOW MY SON LIKES IT BUT he cant he will wait till he is 12 my other kids can enjoy but i would say ages 10-11 can play with a parent but i saw violence and bad language so i know common sense rated it off 2-9 iffy --- on 10+ so no more of this for children under 11

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
Great role models
