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.

Not the worst M rated game

This game is an extremely fun open-world shooter. In it you fight zombie-like creatures called "O.D.". The creatures are not very human-like and splatter ooze instead of blood. Human scavengers are also enemies- blood is stringy and, again, unrealistic. Language is very frequent but can be filtered, as can the blood and gore. If filters are used, there is still a cutscene of a decapitation- but it can be skipped. Sexual content includes references in dialogue and a restaurant entitled "Sex Burger".

This title has:

Too much swearing
