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.

wowee! I am an adult, and I still get thrill when playing this game. it is so so so so fun, i assure you! the story is riveting and quite deep for a childrens game. I find myself relating to the main character, Jesse, but even more to the late villian of season 2, romeo. I feel he is deeper the he appears and terribly misunderstood. i kin him. Also! the media will try to tell you this is a kids game. Yes, kids can play it, but i find that it is more fun when you can see the secret lore once you have matured. All in all, this game has no swearing and minimal gore, a good game for kids! "yipee!" it will make you say, longing to play more and wishing for the game franchise to release more content! one thing tho, there is a relationship between the main character jesse (who can be played as a boy or a girl) and his friend lukas, which can get steamy! ;)

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use
Too much sex
