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.

I think as long as kids have an experience with t rated games I think that they should be allowed to play it. good game with good spooks

age 15+

Great game but not for kids

The evil within 2 is a fantastic game with a more focused story than the first. This is a third person horror shooter that has moments that can be scary and disturbing. This game is very graphic and has many peoples heads exploding with heavy detail. The game has language but is not as bad as other M rated games. Game: Restricted 15, Graphic Violence, Strong Language, Disturbing Content and Horror

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
