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.

Essential stealth

Mechanics yet to be topped in depth and fluidity (even against MGS5) . Great level design. Sam Fisher is so cool and funny. Almost no blood in gameplay at all. What little there is is split second and or obscured by darkness. Very faint gurgling with knifings. A torture scene thats largely offscreen bit very audible, altho if u wait u can see it progress and itvmay be shocking to youngest players...Also he has a somewhat messed up face and theres blood tint in tub water. Rare profanity if you get caught mostly Sh!t bit i heard one F word during alerts.
