It's OK

This is a very good game with pixelated blood and not too many swear words. If you're not letting your child play this and he or she is 11+ it's okay for them to play this, don't restrict your kids from this.

My review 11+

I rate this 12 and up because by this age kids are in middle school and should get more freedom plus trust me fellow parents-if your kid is in middle school they will hear cussing all day and this game has barely and cussing (a he** and dam* every level and possibly a fu** or shi* 2 or 3 times in the whole campaign. But if your kid is immature and will repeat everything they hear then this app is not for them. Lots of blood but its fake and i dont think its much to consider. The whole message is fighting for whats right.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (6 ):

Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour might not be for kids, but adults looking for an action-packed multiplayer mobile game will enjoy what they find. While the game, like its predecessors, is an homage to/rip-off of the most recent entry in the Call of Duty series, it is polished and offers both stellar graphics and great online play.

The campaign is fairly cliche (except for an unexpected twist where you play as the terrorist for a couple levels), but multiplayer rooms are well-populated and the game offers plenty of customization options. The game fails to make any notable improvements from its predecessor (Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation), but it's still a solid action game for grown-ups.
