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.

Great for 12+

Unrealistic cartoonish violence plus gore can be turned off in the settings.
age 15+

Good horror game

The game is a great horror game, with a mix of dread and fear. Unless your kid is capable of scares, i'd wait until they are 15.
