Very good game.

I really enjoyed playing this game. All the characters are very real and convincing. Swearing is limited.

Batman Arkham for 11 and up.

Batman arkham city is ok for 11 and up. It has near to no blood. The main problem is the swearing. But your kid has most likely heard it all before in school. There are no jumpscares and the only drug is a cure to a disease. Batman is a great role model for all kids as he never kills. Get this for your kid now.
