It is the classic RTS game that has endured for more than a decade. And as with most war games, the main point not stressed enough in the ads is that war is he!!. The reason that this game is appropriate for kids my age is the lack of actual blood and gore. you actually have to look for it to find it in this game. so for all those people who comment on the blood and random bodies that get blown up- get real, war is brutal and games about it should reflect that.
