Bought this for my 14 year old son

Aliens: Fireteam Elite is a cooperative third-person survival shooter that takes place in the shoes as marines fighting for their survival. The game isn't too over the top with the violence, but violence IS what the game revolves around. It does have some blood, from the players and the aliens. Usually when shooting the aliens some green acid blood squirts out, but its noting too much, and when you take damage some mild blood does cover the screen, but its nothing that you wont see in pretty much any other game involving fighting. It does have some occasional language such as f bombs but if your kid(s) is/are at least thirteen then by now they know what the f word is. I personally think that if your ever going to let your kids play or watch things with swear words then at least talk to them and tell them its not ok to swear. But besides the game doesn't feature much swearing but do remember to tell them that if they are going to play not to repeat what they here. I bought it for my 13 year old son and he had a lot of fun on it. I took a moment to play it my self and its not to bad. Not the worst game ever. I give it 3-4 stars.

Too much violence
