This game is down right terrific, i don't recommend playing this before the other's. however, let's discuss the issue's with it, this game, for one, is extremely violent. there is a bit of blood, but that can be turned off at any given time, however, language was the biggest issue with this game, there are a total of 7 F-bomb's thrown out through the entire game, if you really care, i can give you the location's of each F-bomb, the first one can be heard on the mission "the doctor" in sequence 2, the second can be heard after sequence 3 where desmond is having an arguement with his father, the next can be heard when your on the mission "skyscraper" as desmond. where you nearly slide off the side of the building, the forth can be found in the same mission, when desmond is held at gunpoint, the fourth is in spanish and is subtitled when 2 men are arguing over how one of them banged the other's sister. the 5th and 6th can be heard on the same mission. after chasing a man through a hallway, he mutter's the word's "i effed up....we effed up" the 7thed is easily missed, while reading through a mysterious E-mail. that cover's it. get this game. it's amazing, but dont get it if you havent played the other 4 in the series. it's easily the best, and the others wont be as fun if you play this first. good luck and have fun.
