NO KIDS

Who are we kidding? All kids play COD. I started playing this when I was like 13. But, according to this website, it would definitely earn the NO KIDS rating because of the Violence and Language. LANGUAGE: Tons of F-words and S-words. In the campaign, online, and in Zombies (new maps.) There's no getting around the swearing (although I think there is a graphic content filter option, but I've never tried it.) VIOLENCE: Gratuitous amounts of gore. In the campaign you can shoot off limbs or heads. Grenades blow soldiers apart and rip stomachs out of bodies. On XBOX Live, heads can't come off, but explosives blow soldiers up and limbs fly (You even get awards for taking limbs off using the tank). In Zombies mode, heads blow up, stumps spurt blood, bottomless torsos crawl towards you, leaving bloody trails behind them. It's not any MORE violent than the story mode, but it's just that you're fighting SO MANY zombies that it seems gorier. Plus, it's more horror/fear - themed, so all around it just seems very intense. The game overall really IS NOT for kids ... but hey, they're gonna be playing it anyway. Just be aware that it is incredibly graphic and there's tons of profanity.

wonderful ww2 game with restrictions

amazing game. its alot of fun. best ww2 game out there. but kids of course, are gonna WANT the best ww2 game out there. so if kids are gonna want it, why did activision have to load it with cussing and gore? limbs will fly off, along with heads. lots of blood. yet theres a restriction in the options menu TO TURN OFF NOT JUST THE BLOOD AND GORE, BUT TE LANGUAGE ALSO! yeah thats right! you can easily turn off the gore and the language. that means no blood, no limbs or heads blown off, and no cussing. I SWEAR! I Have this game!

this game is the most violent game that i have there is a whole lot of bud and language. if you play the zombies mode of this game your charector occasionaly says somthing and almost alwase has the fbom in it plus you can shoot almost any limb of them off. in story mode there is also a lot of cussing and gore including shooting there heads off and things like that. over all this game is very bloody gory and has lots of language but is very vey addicting and fun

Slightly disturbing but a lot of action

There is an unnecessary amount of F-bombs dropped in the american side of the campaign. the Russians are more or less clean, preferring to cure in their native tongue, so if you don't understand Russian, its alright. Its kind of disturbing, hearing Japanese forces screaming as they are burned alive, but it teaches that was isnt just bang bang shoot em up; its real people, that feel real pain, just like you and me.

Great for Teens. Not for younger kids

Call of Duty World at War. This game is really fun and has educational value of world war two. The game has a lot of bad language and very gory violence. Grenades and heavy machineguns blow limbs off of bodies, blow heads off, and cause blood sprays. Despite this, the game is very fun and offers a lot of gamemodes to play

this is a war! they dont care what happens.

ok this is world war 2. they are going to cuss. they've frikken put their lives on the line to defend there country kids need to know world war 2 was a very very bad time. people did get body parts amputated. people were shot to death and mauled by dogs. they of course cussed there grown men in the middle of a world war 2 battlefield. but still if youre still a little uneasy about getting this for your kid, it has a gore and language filter. on the other hand, this game is very educational. the characters in it were real soldiers. cutscenes and before scenes show you the history of world war 2 with newspaper articles form the 40s, war video footage and real life battle formation. and these guys are helping save their country and all of its inhabitants. get this game for your kid.

perfect game but a little to violent

I have played the game before and its a really good game and the story line is unbelieveable. But my concerns are the blood and gore and language. The blood and gore is very noticeble and you can see peoples limbs flying everywhere. But other than that its a really good game for teens 13+

CoD WAW is an amazing WWII fps that blew me away. Of course if you make a WWII game realistic, you have to be prepared for limps flying all over the place. The graphics are amazing, but a bit too realistic for younger teens. Great game for any gun fanatic, because you get to see all of the popular ones in action. adults will have no problem playing this game, just don't let your small children see you playing it.

Call of Duty increases the violence

This game is a fun game, not as good as Call of Duty 4 might I add. Limbs fly everywhere and swear words will be heard. I haven't played the campaign at all, but I've watched Youtube a bit and have seen that it's quite violent. I recommend turning on the graphic content filter in the menu to take it down a notch, but it won't touch the multiplayer. As I said before, limbs are blown off w/ shotguns, artillary strikes, and sniper rifles quite often. It's not all too graphic, but you see bloody stumps of heads, arms, etc. It can get pretty gruesome. And Nazi zombie mode is worse, but very fun. I recommend this game to older teens, but you have to know your kid to know what they can take or should be exposed to.

good for older kids like 10+ but not good for kids below 10+

this is a pretty good game its just that they ruin the campaign with swear words but Nazi zombies is better because the mode does not have swear words but some violence and blood and gore but that goes away and the mode you have to have team work because you dont die when your down your team mate can revive you while you cover him but after a short time you die and you watch the other player it is pretty fun just to play two player but its fun to have other friends over.

Depends on the parent

I know when my parents fist saw the game, they were against buying the game. It's a war game though, so what do you expect. Depending on how you feel about war games will determine whether this game is age appropriate. You can see missions being played on YouTube for further thought and a first hand look.
