"Not for kids?!" Are you kidding, CSM?! That is the most outrageous thing I've ever heard (video game wise!) Halo 4 is no more violent than the other Halo games! There was only one part on Halo 4 that I think was slightly more on the disturbing side, which is when a woman deteriorates after an energy blast, exposing layers of muscle tissue. The CSM review said, "For the first time in this series, melee kills sometimes result in the camera pulling back to show a more cinematic shot of the Master Chief violently beating his opponent to death." THAT IS NOT TRUE! Melee kills were first used in HALO: REACH! The only thing I agreed with in the CSM review was that Cortana's body did seem a little more noticeable than in the other games, but it's not anything to worry about. She's not portrayed in a sexual way, nor does she act sensual or do anything inappropriate. The language is uncommon but fairly moderate (Cortana calls someone a "condescending b---h," and "s" word is used occasionally, but not very commonly at all.) In some ways, Halo 4's campaign had a different vibe than the other Halo games (not necessarily in a bad way, but it was odd for me, and it left me slightly wanting more.) I think it would have possibly been a little better in certain areas if it would have been made by Bungie, but it's still an awesome game! Good storyline, strong characters, great voice acting, and a really fun multiplayer make this worth buying! Bravo 343 :) I'd say 8 or 9/10.
