Not as bad as it seems.

The first thing parents need to know is that common sense is over exagerating. This game should have been givin a T rating, cause its just like Star Wars Battlefront, with great graphics and little gore. When you shoot someone, a small splash of blood will fly up and then dissapear. I think the main problem with this game is the swearing. Unlike COD, theres no option to turn down the language but you can for the violence. The language isint that bad, just the everyday language you hear on the middle school playground. If you heard bad words before and wont use them than this game is FINE. Thank you for taking time to read this review.

Its pretty good.

alright, to start this off, this is probably my least favorite battlefield game. and number two, common sense is very strict. like it probably has the most lanuage out of any battlefield game, but eh, i dont really care about language. it also has blood and violence like any other battlefield game. by the way, i dont care about violence, consumerism, or language. but what I do care about, is sex. and none of these battlefield games have sex so yay. Thats why im so leanient. your welcome! :)
