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.

This is good, intense, but fine for kids. Common sense has got it competley wrong with the age of fourteen, not bad language, but it has some sexual refrences. I say eleven and up for the occasional innuendo and references.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
age 14+

This title has:

Too much consumerism
