Fun game with lots and lots of action.
Resistance 2 was a very fun game. The story was rather weak, but that's ok, because this game is all about the action. Parents should keep in mind that this game is rated M for a reason, but it's not as graphic or mature as other M rated games. The language really wasn't that bad, I've actually heard worse language in a T game. The F word was said only twice in the campaign, (keep in mind that if you child plays online there may be people with headsets using bad language) and the rest of the language was rather mild (sh*t and Da*n). The game is very violent, but still not as bad as others. The blood and gore is definitely there, but it is usually only gross-out gory when you defeat a titan. (When you do, it will explode into large pools of blood, and different body parts will fly everywhere, so there will be a titan head on the ground with the bone and brain completely visible.) But normal enemies don't die so graphically. Headshots can be sort of graphic too... blood will fly out. There is also a gun called a splicer (not seen very often) that will shoot sawblades at enemies. These saw blades will cut off limbs, similar to Dead Space. If your saw blade hits an arm, then the arm is going to fly off. But there is only one or two times in the game when the splicer is neccesary to use, and only around two more than that in which it is available.
If your kid is mature enough to handle the violence, then this is one of the less explicit M rated games out there. It's a definite 15 and up. It's a lot of fun to play, and it shouldn't be passed up if you're an fps fan.
