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.

This title has:

Too much violence
age 15+

An indie pillar

Extreme emphasis on violence and anger. Fantastic soundtrack, the story is a bit hidden, but if you pay attention you will piece it together Also for any parents wondering who the people that are getting are, in the game, we lost the cold war, they built a nuke first. So russian mafia sets up shop in usa, gets political imunity and so a movement is started by vigilantees wearing animal masks, mostly x military to exterminate this russian threat

This title has:

Great role models
Easy to play/use
