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.

Just another BR disguised as something else

Was hoping to find something fresh and different from the overdone mayhem that is the battle royale genre. But alas, it's just one more in disguise. They lure you in with the promise of PvE and the occasional (even hinting at optional) PvP but my oh my, how well deceived you will be - I certainly was. The scenery is quite good looking. The map is pretty much the same, with dynamically changing objectives. And the mobs have interesting mechanics to keep you constantly moving and aware. But that's it. The lack of depth in the quests is disappointing. You can craft weapons, only to have to buy them ingame, with credits... And the match making is laughable. if you're looking for a somewhat entertaining FPS with quests in between, this might be for you. Otherwise, your time is better spent gaming on something else.

Too much swearing
