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.

age 10+


The game is pretty good. While it does have blood, there is no gore at all. Plus, it is a bit comedic and there aren't really that much swear words. The game is okay for kids as long as they understand.
