Its fine for everybody

Sure it has alot of guns and explosions, (airstrikes are pretty cool) but has NO blood, decapitation, sex, drugs, or swearing either, only the occasional d*mn. Oh, and im talking about the pc-only version, Battlefield 2, theres also the console version, Battlefield 2 Modern Combat.

Spoiling the bloody fun, in the name good, again.

The PC version of this game is great. Amazing, some might say, is it wasn't for the bad hitreg (hit registration). It is easy to pick up, has a nice learning curve, and you might find yourself learning a thing or two about Europeans while playing online. But, the Battlefield series has a tradition of being moddable. This is a good and bad thing. The good thing, is that, if your kid has half a brain, he can create custom maps and kits (loadouts of weapons) in the mod editor (it's insanely easy). Also, some nice people have created two NON-COMBAT mods for BF2, Sandbox (which allows your kid to build creations out of bridges and stuff) and Battleracer (which turns BF2 into a racing game). On the flip side, the bad thing is that some mods may contain unacceptable content, which manifests itself in the form of blood coming out of soldiers when you hit them. This may be acceptable for some people, but it might be unacceptable for others. If you have the console version, you have a worse game, but no mod worries. Have Fun!

bloodless war game that is fun at first, but can get boring and repetitive. The real fun begins if you play it online. Without online play, you are better off buying a different war game such as "Call of Duty 2"

Great Game

This game is focused on violence and shooting. There is no dismemberment or blood, but when you shoot or knife someone a puff of sand-like stuff comes out, and the body goes ragdoll. There is mainly no cursing, but occasionally, a character will say, "D*** it, Sorry".

Great War Game with many mods that enhance the game and allow endless gameplay options

This game is a relatively high quality war game but lacks in several areas. This game has no singleplayer story mode like the CoD games and the computer controlled players on singleplayer/co-op missions are as dumb as dirt and use the same route to a base repeatedly even though you flatten them repeatedly with a car or tank. The snipers will never hit you in singleplayer which makes them utterly useless. There are several mods for this game that add World War II(Forgotton Hope 2), Realistic Logistics(Project Reality), Vietnam(Eve of Destruction), Construction Abilities(Sandbox), and enhanced bot intelligence(AIX and Nations At War). Parents should be careful with the mods as some include profuse language(FH2 has [email protected]#$, EoD has d#$% and s#$%, etc.) and most mods add blood(all the previously mentioned ones do).

One of the best war games ever!!!

This game is one of the best war games ever! Why you ask? You can swap between soldiers!!! The gameplay is also very good. It's completly bloodless too. So if you do not want your kid to play games with blood and your okay with a lot shooting then there really is not any more problems with this game. I incourage any fan of first person shooters or someone who wants to be to buy or rent this game.

Good!

I think this game is amazing for me and my child turning 11 soon. Violence is not very bad at all. Language is the only thing to pause on but my kid never uses language he learns from the game. Most of the words in this I hear more at the playground

violent but appropriate

This game is great! Parents, if your kid wants a war game, get him this. They only cuss twice and thats [email protected] and [email protected]@rd. The violence is pretty bad though cuz you can knife people and on certain missions you try to escape a helicopter and justbefore you get there you die. also, if you shoot bodies with a powerful weapon ( ex. shotgun, rocket launcher, etc. ) they will fly. Also the online suppossed strategic thing about this game is gone. Ive played through the campaign and its somewhat good because you can view the war that your in fron different angles. Lots of propaganda beetween missions, but this game is fine if your kid wants a call of duty or battlefield game. This game is on xbox, xbox 360, ps2, and pc.

A good game for people struggling with teamwork.

This game is actually very good. It is still violent though, like many first person shooters. The detailed AI responds to your messages very quickly, immersing yourself into the real battlefield. Their isn't much swearing, and teamwork is involved.

Iffy for 9+

It's a good game. There is some violence and mild swearing. There's also a litte red mark on the screen when you die. But it's not the every day M rated war games you see. This game is less violent and occasional swearing but it's ok.

Great Game for All Ages

This game is very fun. As long as you don't have problem with the idea of death this game will be fine. It is a great introduction to FPS games.

Aging but awesome game

Understand that this game allows open chat so you WILL hear cussing on occasion. That being said this game is AMAZING. It's old, but that doesn't mean it's bad. That's like saying Citizen Kane is bad because it is old. The controls are top notch and it will forever be one of my favorites.

Perfect game for modern warfare.

Now I'll tell you, I'm a fan of WWII shooters (Medal of Honor: Heroes 2, Call of Duty 3, and Battlefield 1942 are just a few). However, when it comes to making modern warfare shooters fun, Battlefield 2 is the best. This game has high intensity firefights that remain bloodless (a plus for parents), has an incredible AI that is pretty much as good as any human opponent that you will face, and, with artillary fire, you better watch out when you hear squeaking. You also can pull off incredible stunts that I have seen people on videos do, and they look awsome. I like sniping on a building and then have to make a dramatic jump when I hear artillery coming in. This game is one of the best on the PC. Violence isn't much of an issue as already mentioned. The most offensive part is if a person gets caught next to an explosion, they will go flying in the air. As far as knife fights go, when a person gets hit in the neck a puff of smoke comes out (much better than the usual head falling off). Unlike most shooters, Battlefield games do not have bad language, and you can play this feeling safe about that, although some online servers allow profanity, but some will kick you off if you use it if it is anything like BF 1942 (you do need to buy something to allow you to play single-player online so you can play multiplayer when you reach a high enough level). The way people act is incredible. Medics come to your aid, people appologize for accidental team hits, and you will eventually do it just as well (teamwork, teamwork, teamwork. Something that games need and war games like MoH, CoD, and BF are perfect for that). However, I hear that online a lot only look out for themselves. When it comes to the educational value, you can learn a lot about what war is like. You may want to talk to your children about how soldiers don't die as often, firefights are bloodier in real life, and you also don't have only sixty-four soldiers on the battlefield at max. It does include strategy, and your child will learn about modern day weapons of warfare. You also may want to tell them how this kind of violence is only justifiable in war predominantly. When it comes down to it BF 2 is awsome. Another good game from the Battlefield series is Battlefield 1942 which is just as good, actually better than this, except it doesn't have as good of an AI (artificial intelligence for those of you who don't know what I'm talking about). If you have the system to run it (make sure you have an NVIDIA video card if you do meet the minimum video requirements) then buy this. Do note though that just because you have minimum requirements, doesn't mean every course will run well (on the stand alone, I found one course that didn't run perfectly). This is good for ages 10+ I would say.
