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.

Just OK for 9-10 year old kids

I watched my son nikki play this game and it was so cool, I wanted to play. It wasnt that bad, no bad language although its freaking violent. The blood is mild, it looks like a frothy gas, but its awesome! Don't listen to commonsense, get your 9-10 year old kid a copy today! Its that awesome!!! :D
