Trust your child, but make sure they're responsible.
This is a truly great game. However, I think your child should be responsible when playing a game such as this. You shouldn't think that by playing this video game your child will grow up to be a murderer, I've often heard things like this. If your child is 11, this is probably a good age to play a game such as this, as long as they understand that killing is bad. I do, however, think that this game shows fighting in the war well, and helps them better grasp the concept. Other than that, there is no much educational benefit (aside from learning about various types of weapons). If your child is above 11, I think it is very acceptable for them to play this game. There is a zombie mode in this game, which isn't scary, but is more of an arcade-type game that can teach cooperation in multiplayer. If you do not want your child to talk with others, it is optional to mute all players. If your child has a friend who also plays this game, they can join together online and speak though. I don't think this game should be rated "M", many of the things listed on the back are at a minimum or barely even exist, so don't just tell your child "no" when they ask to get it. Overall, a fun game that many people enjoy, but does include weapons and guns, but they shouldn't be a major problem for your child. Do note that gore and/or language can be taken out if you are very uneasy about your child being exposed to it, but again, it shouldn't be a problem.
