I have younger brothers 13 and up, and they are fine playing the game. The ceph are a little scary to smaller kids like 13 and under. The grahics are incredible, and the gameplay is great in both singleplayer and multiplayer. This game has strong language, it has all the words in the book. What everyone won't tell you is that you can turn the speech off, and disable subtitles. Now you can still hear the cool sound effects and gunshots, you just don't need to hear the overly excessive and purely unnecessary cursing the game has to offer. I also recommend this fps game as all others for children who are mature enough to know the difference between a game and reality and know how precious human life really is. The violence is ok, just some blood and shooting, the aliens will explode sometimes but they kind of look like giant pink gummies in armor. There are scenes from crysis 2 that show prophet killing himself (shot head) which shouldn't be seen by younger kids/ immature kids.
