Great for kids

My 8 year old kid played warzone on his xbox and now really wants this game. I saw the common sense media said and I looked at gameplay. It does not match this game is great for kids.

Do your research on Call of Duty

This game is a well thought out project put out by Activison and the call of duty franchise. I always look at common sense media before I buy my son any games or let him watch any movies. Typically I steer away from call of duty games for him because of the M rating for 17+. After doing some research about this game and watching gameplay footage I realized it is not that bad of a game. Call of duty is required to put this rating because of the gore that can be visualized and the language. However, you can turn off the language for younger audience. Also there is a setting that turns off the blood and gore in the game. I turned this off for my 15 year old so he can still enjoy the game without seeing too much violence. I believe that this game is great and there should be no problem with anyone 14 or older playing this game. If you are a parent and you are still hesitant you should watch some of the gameplay footage. It definitely changed my mind! I know that call of duty is known for being a gruesome game and very violent but it is not like that at all. My son loves this game and I have also enjoyed playing it with him.
