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.

To those protective parents out there

I think that the game is good for 11 and up because the strip club scene is optional to get a lap dance. You can mute the speech volume so you can not hear the swearing and the violence isn't that bad, It's pretty mild when you kill enemies there's barely any blood and you can skip cut scenes. And at the start you work with a guy named Parvel and it shows them working together to get further and closer and they help each other survive. I recommend you buy this game for your kid.

Relatively solid- but nudophobes beware

The game's fantastic, but there is one scene that the review neglected to factor in- that of a non-skippable, non-interactive graphic pre-sex scene in which another character allows her tank top strap to slid down her shoulder, completely revealing her breast and nipple. The other scenes described, while slightly graphic (heaving, over-sized breasts and quite a lot of cleavage when it comes to the prostitutes) are certainly there- but they are not fully revealing.

Too much sex
