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 title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
age 14+

An acquired taste.

Blood clouds are large but are more for indication than anything, cant remember any staining. There are gibs and some dismemberment but this is more matter of fact than anything. Theres barely any real dialog so profanity is non issue even when it appears. A hardcore yet more accessible Arma (which spawned from the original Op Flash by the way) style simulator. Many missions here are (more open versions of) what would be a tiny skirmish early in a level in a CoD style shooter, yet challenged amped up to more realistic stakes. If ur in mood for slow paced open ended game of plan and execute youll probably be satisfied when you come out on top.
