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.

A fun, challenging racing game

This game isn't that bad, you just have to explain to your child about driving safely. You should also discuss with them about how you get right back into the game after a lethal accident, and how it differs from real life. There is some mild language in the game, but nothing too serious.

Some swearing and some guns

This game is cool because had open free drive which my son loves. What he doesn't love is that when the police chase him, if they catch him, they pull guns on him and take his money. Other than that, it's a decent game.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
