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.

The game is very slow compared to other fighting games, but this isn't always a bad thing as it gives you time to think. Easy to pickup, yet hard to master. Also, I disagree with what Harold cooper said, while the blood can be turned off, some of the characters may look scary to younger children. Some females are slightly sexulized in looks. If your children are mature, however then its fine if you let SOME kids under 13 play (namely 11 12 13).However some people may consider the game over the top in violence, (not that true as some previous games were more over the top).
