Cod Ghosts, like any other Cod game, is a violent military shooter (the player can use several weapons to kill hundreds of enemies , in a merciless rampage), but the violence is not so gory (although blood and screams are employed in the killings). Occasional profanities, zero sexual references, almost nothing related to drinking and smoking.

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much swearing
