good ww2 game

call of duty 3 is a very good game. the characters are good role models and the language isn't that bad. the worst thing they say is the b***h but they only say it once or twice.

Iffy for 11 and under, OK for 12 and up.

This game is probably the least violent game in the Call of Duty series. The blood is sometime unnoticeable and the violence is particularly low. When me and my friend play we just laugh and have a great time. Because there's nothing really intense, it's just white lines flying out of a gun hit someone, and then they fall over. Now as this is still a violent concept, its all pretty unrealistic.

Perfect for tweens

This is a good game. The worst word it uses is b****. Some of the missions are a little violent. You usually don't see blood.

Its decent, but they can make a much better game than this.

I've only played it once, but I was getting pretty bored after about the first 20 minutes. Also beware of lots of violence, even thought it is sort of educational. Overall, Medal of Honor Airborne is better.

I was pretty good and had some eduacational value

Despite the small amounts of blood and limited cursing the only bad part is the overturned violence though it was still ok.

e.g. Perfect

This game is awsome. To say the least. it shows that you can have a fun and learn something at the same time. The blood is not bad at all. You can barly see any blood and you dont really get up close topeople. The sounds in this game are awsome and the nazi's speak real german.

Will work for younger kids, but not the best game.

This game is definitely okay for younger kids. Very little blood, I didn't notice it at first when playing, only some small mist to tell you that you killed the other person. There is also no gore and very little language. Maybe a sh*t or h*ll here or there. And if you want to ever watch a game be played but don't want to pay money to rent or don't have a rental store around you, utilize youtube. It really helps as you can use the walkthroughs people make for gamers to see the whole campaign or watch multiplayer matches.

Very great, and educational.

I have this game and love it. Of course like all war games it is violent, some blood, and bodies. But it is eucational and shows how war takes effects on the soldiers. Great.

Not as Bad as you might think

Great game, not as bad as newer installments in the series. It is not as bad as they make it out to be. I got it at 11 and so far I'm not dropping f bombs anywhere.
