Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Not much different from predecessor.

Gameplay is the same, yet there is more locale variety. *Note that gore can be deactivated* The game is considerabley gorier and more gratuitous. Specifically how slow mo cams excentuate the carnage (can be turned off too). This sadism is probably to appease Gears of War players of the time. You can turn this off tho. Blood splashes and splatters are very large, dismemberment is detailed and doesn't stop at limbs but at bisected torsos and half blasted off heads with visible skull an brainmatter along with blood. Several scripted scenes of gore including a sniper who falls and bursts open on the ground gruesomely and a house full of torn apart bodies with viscera abound (possibly a PTSD hallucination). F words and some C words have notable presence but arent constant.

This game is a good game with lots of action in it. Their is no nudity, no drugs and other stuffs like that. You are in WWII with lots of explosion and fires ... Their is not too much blood. I think you can buy this game for a boy that's 12 and up ! :)
