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.

Best RE game to date

Teaches kids how to work as a team, help strangers who can't defend themselves and how to be courageous against monsters and demons. Lots of swearing and violence though, but it's a M rated game about a zombie apocalypse.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
