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.

PG-13 (All sexual themes are avoidable)

The playboys are avoidable, you can take the playboy or leave it. The violence is over exaggerated for a game that is a decade old/the blood is low quality not violent. It teaches you a lot about how the Mafia worked in 1945 and 1951. The cursing is avoidable by turning off the setting. A lot of the reviews are over exaggerated. It is one of the best games I've ever played

Okay, nothing with a normal game I saw the comments, but the violence is high
