Visual Downgrades = Less Dark Game

I found off-screen violence to be more concerning than actual combat. Dead bodies can be found covered in absurd amounts of blood. This is especially evident in the Medical Pavilion section, where an insane plastic surgeon makes grotesque creations of dead women. It should be noted that violence is used to critique Objectivism as well as greed and society's standards. It's not just for entertainment purposes. While off screen violence is graphic, combat in the game however is much less gory due to visual downgrades for mobile devices. You will be fighting splicers, deformed humanoids with no morality. You have the option to "harvest" little-sisters, though this action also in not shown or heard on screen plus there are significant consequences for harming the girls. I didn't feel as those language was a significant factor. Though the s word is used a bit and there were two or three f-bombs, the language was not as pervasive as most R rated movies. There are no instances of sex (mind some dialogue about a show girl) and drinking/smoking in this game has negative effects. While a bit dark, Bioshock is appropriate for mature teens. On for 13 and up but no one younger.
