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.

16+? Really?!

Ahhhh infamous, the sequel to the first video game I ever played when I was in my twenties. Such good memories. Now, to start off, there is such a MASSIVE improvement in graphics compared to the first one. These are like, 2015 graphics not 2011. Ermmm the swearing is mild and infrequent, not a problem for any 11 year olds. The violence is VERY PG, except for the blood splatters on the screen when you get hit. My 12 year old played it earlier this year and loved it. He’s going back to get the platinum trophy when we fix the latch to loft the ps3’s in. But yeah, kid friendly and BRILLIANT, no matter what rubbish csm and pegi are feeding you.

Too much violence
