It is for parents only, giving an in depth, factual rating and analysis of most games, apps and films, clearly itemising content, levels of language and the kind of content your child might be exposed to whilst playing these games.

This means your child could be chatting online to strangers and coming into contact with content and opinions that are unsuitable or leave them at risk. For more information on social media functions within computer games please visit
