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.

We'll I'm not going to lie there is some blood, but it is really cartoonish and as far as the Language it is strong but as long as your teen doesn't repeat it, it should be fine. As for positive role models Lee the main character is convicted of murder but yet he completely turns himself around when he finds a little girl in a tree house and helps her through out the game, Drugs and alcohol there are no drugs but there is beer at bars. Thanks for reading my True Reveiw

TWD is fine but not for everyone.

TWD video game is amazing. It might not be for everyone because through out the game there's blood, swearing, smoking, drinking, murder, ect. But the game has a cartoony art style which makes it more teen friendly.
