I have been playing the need for speed series for a while now, and this is a very good title. Young kids could get frustrated at not being able to complete a race, but the violence is light and does not feel that real. Ok for 6 year olds in my opinion, so long as they dont get addicted to it, or get frustrated easily. Apparently the Weatherman song has swearing in it, but i have looked up the lyrics and found none. This is a good game to give to older kids instead of giving them more violent games.
