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.

This is an amazing game. In my opinion it is one of the few need for speed games that they got right. This game is a thriller and has many different routes to go with so there is plenty of time on it that you can spend.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
