Parents honest review

As a parent of a 13-year-old I came to the site to read the reviews which said it was great. But I was not to pleased on one feature called online chat which was talking to random people in the lobby but I thought I would have a look as it is on sale right now. I discovered that there was a new update to Sea of Thieves which gave the option to turn off all communication with other players this allows your child to play the game and have fun while you have the peace of mind that no strangers can just talk to them. Other than this my review is like many other parents which is it does offer great problem-solving, action and adventure with our having to much gore and guns. I would strongly recommend this game to people who’s children want to start playing higher production games
