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 game has no skill based matchmaking

The game has no skill-based match making so you have to pray if you get somebody who can help you because most people don't know what they are doing so every game I play, and it gets me mad that I always have to fight 3 or more people by myself. This game really disappoints me when even in arena my teammates are never in fights. This game really is a sad game to play, I hope the creators will use their mind correctly the next time they think of making a game. They couldn't even make skill-based matchmaking game which proves they do not have that high of an education. I'm assuming this this the first game they made because if it isn't then it honestly shows they have no path for video game making and should go put their talents into something else like washing people's cars. I don't know if they could even get hired with their idiotic skills.

Fast paced shooter game is one of the most kid friendly shooters.

Most shooters are extremely violent and bloody but this game is a great introduction to young children. There is frequent moderate violence and occasional cussing. NO sexual themes whatsoever.

This title has:

Too much violence
