Experience the reality of war and often overlooked acts of bravery and sacrifice.

Singleplayer gives the reality of the Great War and shines a light on those who go above and beyond the expected to save and protect those close to them. It puts you in the shoes of a hero or a redeemed criminal using their skills to save their countrymen. Multiplayer goes about it more of the general way. You're a cog in the machine and are expected to pull your weight to secure your country's victory over the enemy. Violence, obviously, is present, I'd say at a (6.5/10). Sex/Nudity is non-existent, at a (0/10). It makes you aware of the horrors of war and why we should avoid it, positive messages at a (8/10). It gives you heroes of war and self-sacrificing saviors' stories, giving good role models at a (10/10). Good for a kid who can understand the implications of war. Age rating varies by maturity level, but I'd say it's good for ages 10+.

Beautiful game's violence is overstated but language is understated.

I am a professional PEGI reviewer. This game is beautiful and I truly loved the experience at the beginning and even after the updates. The game can be quite violent but commonsense has overstated the violence significantly. There is no gore in combat throughout the game. Blood is briefly shown and is very obscure when shown. The violence in my opinion is 7.5/10. Language harsher than commonsense media states but isn't too harsh. F-bombs are quite rare but sh*t and many mild obscenities are said often throughout gameplay and the campaign. The Language, in my opinion, is a 6/10 and by commonsense media's standards a 4/5. This game is the game is much more suitable for 11 year olds than the next game in the series and definetly more suitable than hardline.
