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.

Surprising bite.

It may seem slow and miserable after its surprisingly fast paced intro which leads you to think this is some sort of hack and slash; but if you give it a chance and stick with it, you will find a game with strong atmosphere, innovative and intuitive role playing/progression mechanics and a story with (mostly) better writing than Life is Strange. Combat isnt super deep or challenging but is one of the more fluid takes on the Souls formula. Theres also a large amount of blood and gore in combat (gushing blood, impaling and exploding foes) and throughout the world with mountains of gross rotting and scorched corpses. Especially in Skal lairs with disemboweled and impaled nude bodies. Moreso if you choose to lead areas into chaos with your choices. Fair amount of F words.
