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.

any kid 10+ could definitely play this

i would normally play through a game before i let my kid play it just so i know that its appropriate and im not gonna let him have all the fun! but a couple of things i noticed when i played this was that the game has 23 swears in total but its a 15 hour long experience and even a 2 hour long film has more swears than that and if a 2 hour long film with 23 swears was turned into a game that was 15 hours long it would overall have 161 swears which is not even close to 23. now the gore and violence, theres nothing more than you get in your average episode of stranger things than you would get in this except this is less realistic because the blood is graphics in this and its not as real as a blood pack in a tv show and lets be real your child has definitely seen worse and there is no sexual references or just sex in general in this game and I cant see how this game is rated 18+ in this review and rated 17+ in general and also this game has great role models as you develop relationships with other players in the game but overall the gameplay and enjoyability in this game is top notch and i would recommend to anyone 10+

Scary But Fun

One thing to note is that there is occasional swearing and violence. The main part of the game is helping others. Though you can decapitate others kill others, you have the ability to turn off blood and use weapons that don't decapitate (anything but axes, cleavers, hatchets, and katanas). You do have the ability to drink but is encouraged not to as it will hurt you stamina.
