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.

What parents should know is: Its very gory, but! the gore can be turned off so no heads come flying off! :) Yes, you can play online w/ voice chat, which isn't a big deal to somepeople. Just turn the sound down, haha! This is not a bad game for children 10 or higher. If you keep the gore off its a rated "T" game easy.
