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.

Still amazing!

I remember playing the original game when it came out. Even now it’s great, I replayed the whole thing and it was just as fun as the first time. Little bit of blood. Almost no language. Some violence but only against aliens. I don’t know what CSM is talking about, the Master Chief is a positive role model. Since when is saving the world not positive?

There are PG movies worse than this

Have no idea why this 18 when all other games (except 4 which is the tamest in the series; and that includes the T rated Halo 5) are rated lower.
