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.

Perfect as a present for an 11 yr old!

It's a very good game, though it looked violent, but actually, the rating isn't true at all! I mean, if once there is a bad word, mute the sound! It's not worse than what your children will hear at school! Then, violence: There is no blood, and if your son has watched Zorro or even the first 3 star wars, it's fine! I played with my son, one at a time, and I can assure you: for someone who never plays video games, I had a really good time. My 11 yr old was fine playing it, because normally you tend to get more mature if you have a little brother, but I wouldn't recommend it for any kid under that age. This is Heather Hills, parent of two children, from somewhere in America.

This game has a western setting. Much different from the gang wars oriented original game (which is way better) This one's okay. The swordfighting is more realistic, thanks to the Wii Motion Plus, and can be pretty fun. The game has a cartoonish look to it, is very mild in all aspects and fine for kids.
