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.

Questionable Soundtrack

The audio soundtrack for this game includes some really questionable songs. One of them is Eazy E’s Boyz in the Hood. I’m not uptight at all when it comes to vulgar lyrics; I actually own the record this track is on, but it’s not appropriate for a kid. They play the whole song front to back. They edited out the many expletives, but just barely, and it’s plainly obvious even to a child what had originally been said. It references freebasing coke, scoring 8 balls, murdering a crack head whole stole his stereo, grabbing his “ho” by her “nappy ass weave” and slapping her around, beating up her father for trying to protect her, shooting up a court room with an uzi, etc. It refers to cops as pigs. I don’t know what the designers were thinking. This isn’t Grand Theft Auto, it’s wrestling.
