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 game that provides deep thought

This is a very challenging JRPG that really makes you think about life. Explores what would happen if the world ended and how people would survive that are stuck on earth. Very dark story and lots of violence and language. Would highly recommend this to any teenager that can handle mature themes as well as any adult that enjoys a good dark story and challenging gameplay

This title has:

Great role models
Too much swearing
