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 8+

It's all around fast paced excitement for youngsters of all ages.

you are wrong about the online communication aspect of the game. You stated; "Note that while the game does support online play, it does not offer any communication features, which means there is no opportunity for players to share personal information or be exposed to inappropriate behavior." That is incorrect. When equipped with a headset you can freely communicate with other players during and between online play. I'm not quite sure where you got your information, but it is wrong and needs to be updated.
