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.

Stunning, rewarding and a bit scary

This is an absolutely stunning game. The environment and soundtrack are beautiful, and the story is engaging, with a phenomenal ending. The controls are great, but it's challenging. You'll probably die a lot, but the game doesn't penalise you heavily for it. Some parts of the game are quite tense, and some of the monsters are terrifying. Kids younger than ten will probably lack the dexterity to play, and those younger than six may find it too scary too watch.
