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.

You're better getting your Kids GTA.

Its amazing. However it is not for kids. As a massive fan of the godfather trilogy is was stoked to play this game. It is full of sex, violence, language and drugs. Sex (10/10) in this game you have to own strip clubs, prostitution rings and porn industries, you can also talk dirty to women and see them topless. Violence (10/10) in this game you kill many people including civilians and police officers which results in a massive amounts of blood. As well as this the player can do brutal executions (ffor example throw a person to the ground stamp of there next and fire a tommy gun into There back) which also result in lots of blood. Language (9/10) lots of f-bombs. Drugs (10/10) players can own drug factory's and create drug rings, players will see many drugs through the duration of this game. Dont get me wrong this games brilliant. Just not for kids.

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

Good for a mature teenager

This game is really great, a fantastic play. I'd say that if you know you're kid is mature and can handle this level of violence (there is lots of blood and gore) and knows that the sexual exploitation of women is wrong (players can run both strip clubs and prostitution 'businesses') this game is A-OK. Judge your kid by their maturity to see if it's OK for them.

Too much swearing
