Call of Duty Black Ops is a first person shooter game that I'm sure all the whippersnappers have heard about(I'm one of them). You take the role of Alex Mason, a soldier being tortured by Castro and a fictional character by the name of Dragovich. Somewhat of the Majority of this game Alex Mason,(from a first person point of view) is interrogated throughout the story line,and is sometimes tortured with electricity, as well as being able to see torture tools set on the table(Never used) Players use flamethrowers, assault rifles, SMG's, Shotguns, etc. Splashes of blood are seen from enemies when they are shot, and can be dismembered with shotguns, explosive crossbow bolts, LMG's, and other heavy artillery. In one brief sequence, Players are required to shove glass into a characters mouth during an interrogation, causing blood to run down his chin. In another prolonged sequence, the player plays Russian Roulette, and there is a a lot of intense moments and profanity in the sequence, as well as a character beaten to death with a pipe.(To the head) Cutscenes also depict very graphic and disturbing(real) photo's of body's affected by Nova Gas. In one WWII level, some swastikas(Nazi symbols) are present in the environment. That level also depicts a very graphic scene were a character is killed with Nova Gas. and in another scene, players have the choice to slit soldiers throats in their sleep. There is also some brief tobacco use, and reference. The beginning of the the game depicts A large smoke clouds, followed by the sound of a lighter. And one character is briefly depicted smoking a cigarette in 2 dramatic or cinematic scenes. The words "f**k", "s**t", "da*n", "a*s" and "a*shole" "hell" and "bi*ch" is heard frequently in the dialogue. Though, there is an option players are allowed to toggle: Graphic Content. Here is a list of what disabling Graphic Content does:
No gore, less blood.
Profanity: "f**k", "sh*t", "a*shole", and different instances of the word "bi*ch"
The sequence with glass being placed in a characters mouth
The graphic-ness of the gas shower scene.
The Graphic Content feature DOES NOT exclude blood from online multiplayer, or online zombies.
Please note that the D.S. version of this game is completely different, and that the Wii Version doesn't depict Gore in the single-player story.
The online Multiplayer also contains, voice chat. Meaning players can say whatever they want, so I'd be cautious about that.
Talk with your kid, and discuss this content with him.
