Batman Arkham Orgins is the best game i bought for my Son and I to play. First i thought my 9 year old son couldnt handle it but he did! Batman Never kills which was a good thing. Not too much violence some PG13 Cursing once and a while and Levels where you need to use your brain. Just because Pegi says its 16 and up or 15 dont believe them. Trust me is not that violent.

Good guy Batman
This is a strategic combat based game. Batman must fight through Christmas eve against a bounty put on his head for something like a million? Anyway the game has some puzzle in it, after all batman is a detective. I would recommend this game to anyone over thirteen because the combat is quite comical.

My Son(12) loves this game. So many Parents will not purchase the game because of the way they rated it (Drug),but that is because one of his enemys is a big man or thing that is on steroids not rated properly with the sex and drinking review.
The game is quite violent but it takes strategy and solving puzzles to win. My children love it. At least I feel it's less graphically violent than a lot of other popular games. There is too much swearing. There really does not need to be any swearing at all, it does not enhance the game one little bit. I have my children turn down the volume way low or off.
Batman has just started his crime fighting career. He is hot headed and angry. Batman holds nothing bat in this game, he has nearly no restraint. A lot of anger is thrown around. Luckily, through the game Batman matures immensely. He becomes the Batman you see in the other 3 games.
I read the reviews and thought it might be okay to try this game for my 9 and 11 year old sons. There is high levels of intense violence in this game but we didn't play it long enough to see how long it lasts. I don't understand the other reviews. My boys have played Halo but this is completely inappropriate for kids younger than 13 in my opinion.
