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.

Usually OK with Teen ratings, but hmmmm on this one!

The game itself is cool. But,there are more references to sexuality than those discussed already. I didn't have any specific issues (reference to gynecologist office) until the scene with the character in a union between a crocodile and a lumber jack which produces the gatorjack spawn. This scene has made me reconsider the appeal of this particular game...

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
