Parents ok with Fortnite will be ok with this. Works on Xbox One too!

This is a very good team based first person shooter for ages 10+. Player is on a squad, USA or Japan fighting for islands in a capture the flag style. Players receive rankings and during setup one can choose a family friendly mode without griefing and trash talking. As players advance they receive rankings and competitors can be flagged for inappropriate behavior. No blood or body parts flying through the air. Combine this with a short history lesson about the battle for the Pacific in WWII and the sacrifices our warriors made on Iwo, Wake, etc. Semper Fi.

14+???

what was common sense thinking? I used to play this as a kid. I played this game again recently and i decided to look it up on common sense for some reason. I was SUPRISED to see a 14+ rating. this game. This game should be 13+ at most because it has the amount of violence as games like star war battlefrount ll(which isnt very violent). its violence is very comical like the simpsons. its almost like watching a pg rated movie.

Great game

If your child wants a shooter you should get him this first because even the teen rated call of duties have blood.

Perfect for tweens and up.

This is a very good game for tweens and up. Especially if you don't like Call of Duty because this game is not violent compared to Call of Duty. This game is great because it is fun for the kids and it teaches them about trench warfare and various things about world ar 2 and you are never killing innocent people. When people "die" they just falll down no blood.

Battlefield 1943 shows hope for the future of downloadable video games

Battlefield 1943 is an exciting First-Person-Shooter in which the player is either Japanese or American soldier fighting on 1 of 5 Japanese islands during the course of WWII. The plotline focuses on the war itself, therefore it is needless of an additional storyline. (I.E: a soldier trying to survive in order to get back to his family) Players shoot, blast, slash and impale infantry as well as mow them to the ground with war tanks or cars. Additionally, every soldier has the opportunity to launch a bombing raid or simply hop in a plane then aim & fire at whatever vehicle or person they find scattered about the island. The goal of the game is simple: capture the flags and kill anyone who stands in your way. While there aren't spurts of blood when a soldier is shot or an arm flying half way across the screen when someone hurls a grenade, the combat isn't any less fun than that of a Call of Duty game. With realistic graphics and smooth gameplay at the low cost of $15.00, it's the ideal choice if you are in search of a good war game without the blood and gore or waste of gasoline on the trip to GameStop.
