11+ is okay

Not violent and is like NOVA or halo.
age 11+

Not that bad

It realy isn't that violent. There isn't any cursing gore or even girls, and the little blood there is can be turned off in settings. It is pretty much shooting targets that walk around. I don't see why it is rated 17+ (probably just to please overprotective parents). It is a very entertaining game and kids under 11 should be allowed to play it.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (18):

Shooters are hard to pull off on the iPhone, but Gameloft has done a terrific job with Modern Combat 2. The graphics are sharp (especially for folks using an iDevice with a Retina screen). The action is tense and well-paced. And the missions are varied. There is, however, a fair bit of predictability -- particularly for players who have put in some time with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, from which this app borrows quite liberally. It is, however, a realistic portrayal of violence and isn't something that is meant for kids.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
