This game is rated 17+, but it's not as graphic as other 17+ games, such as call of duty. For example, there is a moderate amount of blood shed when an enemy is shot, but it does not stain the environment or look as realistic as other games (more mist-cloud like) and there is no gore whatsoever. One thing I like is that it's not a dark game, unlike most military shooters, and you attack in self-defense most of the time. You can stab enemies, but it's bloodless and offscreen (the camera lunges at the enemy, you swipe your knife at them, and they fall over). There are mild innuendos, but unless your kid understands them, it'll go over their head. No drug content whatsoever. There is a lot of swearing in this game, but it's most often not directed at any specific person (e.g. "What the fuck are they doing?" "The guy is fucking dead!" "We got a fucking sniper!"). As you can see, they like the F word. However, language (pre-recorded, not from other players) is directed at characters in multiplayer, if you hit a team-mate (e.g. "Hey it's me you stupid fuck!" "Hey dumbshit! We're on the same side!") So, to sum up, the main characters are not bad people, blood is not very graphic (and sometimes doesn't even show up), swearing is constant but not directed at people for most of the time. Hope this helps!
