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.

For art fans

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much sex
age 12+

Why bother?

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
