Not as bad as it seems

I got this game for my son and I was skeptical about it at first, so I tried it out and I'm glad I did because I realized that it wasn't that bad. You can turn off the gore in the game and honestly it is a game about world war two so it's generally history. Also, the language is only in the campaign mode and I have found that both of my sons like playing the game more with each other than online anyway so the unmoderated multiplayer doesn't really matter. In the end I would say that this is probably the best COD game to get your kid and really, it isn't as bad as the rating and initial appearance make it out to be.

Sure the age rating is 18+. But its rated M because of blood and language. If you're kid can handle language without cussing, then the language is fine. If they watch Marvel movies or any type of movie like that and they don't cuss, then it's fine. So language isn't really a problem. The blood also isn't really bad either. When you get shot and die, blood pools onto the screen but all it looks like is a red picture frame. Then when you shoot the enemies there is a little tiny bit of blood that looks like the blood was shot through a water gun. So blood isn't super bad either. The game itself can teach kids about WWII because it is close to what is was like. It is difficult to play but this is coming from someone who is only decent at party and sports games. Without the blood and language I'd say 8 and up, with it 9 and up, but with the difficulty of play and the setting, 10 and up. On PC only you can turn off blood but I don't think language.
