A Decent Game

While this game can be innapropriate on the language and gore, all that matters is how well you know and trust your kid. if you trust him enough to not use that language then I don't see a big deal, But if your kid says words they don't understand or accedently uses bad language then maybe hold back a year or two, this includes if they get scared easily or not . As long as you trust them it' not going to be a problem and they'll be happy.

great game or is it

this game may be extremely gorery but i am shure if your child has seen (r or ma rated warwar or zombie films it is the same level.) my parents love the game and allow me to play it because it is more friendlier then grand theft auto iv parents this is a must have for alien and survivae horror fans. 9 out of 10 violence 10 out of 10 for a good graphics story gameplay great game but don't buy it if your child has not seen a movie like 28 days or weeks latter i am legend the crazies apocalypto and others

Dead Space 2: Violent, gory, and very scary

Dead Space 2 is the second game in the "Dead Space" franchise. It starts with flashbacks from the first game. Dead Space is fun and challenging, but it is NOT for kids younger than 16 or fifteen. Maybe 14 at most, depending on the parent's expectations. The game contains severe violence, language, and gore, but no sexual content. In the game, the player can be decapitated, blown up, crushed, stabbed, impaled, bitten, or vomited on. Yet, the player can shoot, crush, or dismember monsters as well. The game's story line is similar to the first. You play as Isaac Clarke, and you are held in medical treatment for your last encounter with the "Marker" on the Ishimura. Like the first, an alien artifact creates a virus that takes over and mutates crew members of a ship, turning them into ferocious monsters. You must survive and escape the terror. The game does not only focus on killing. You need to read computers, unlock doors, help crew members, and Etc. Dead Space 2 delivers a few good role models, such as bravery and the help of others. But, the message is to survive hideous creatures on a "nearly" abandoned space ship. Also, the monsters are very gruesome and disturbing, and will jump out at you from time to time. And, the fact of being sliced by these creatures or having them vomit acidic bile on your face will be too much for kids under 15 or 16. Dead Space is a good game, with amazing graphics and story. But it still brings out the scare factor. Dear Parents, I would highly recommend taking a look at this game before letting your child experience it, depending on their age.

fun sci-fi shooter that is not good for the young ones

This game is fun, but not for a lot of people. It contains strong violence and got including dismemberment and decapitations add well as lots of other things. The violence is very disturbing and may unsettle lots and lots of people. This game has language, but it is not terrible. The whole game is very intense and scary, and will have jumps scenes. It also if very disturbing from being the violence, to having things jump out at the screen. Really mature 12. If this were rated as would as movies are rated it would be R: Strong Bloody Sci-Fi Violence and Gore, Scary and Disturbing Content, and Language.

Scariest. Game EVER.

I got this game from my friend and when I played it I nearly sh*t my pants. Just that scary. What makes it scary are the numerous pop up scenes and parts where ALL the lights go out momentarily and swarms of Necomorphs try to get you. NOT recommended for light hearted and people with bladder promblems.

This is the most gory game EVER!

I have to admit dead space 2 is as gory as hell, if you like that sort of thing, you are going to LOVE this game. However, this game is NOT to be played by Kids and teens. Expect copious amounts of gore, language and scares! The atmosphere is so tense, it makes resident evil look like Scooby doo. Also there is the multiplayer, this is one of the best multiplayer games since MW2. The fact you can decapitate other people online is highly amusing and invigorating. All in all this is one of the best (goriest) games of the decade, up high with the likes of mass effect 2, MW2 and halo reach.

Big fun but also big scares.

Although it is great, it is not a kids game. It has lots of violence, blood, gore, and langauge all displayed in an over the top, distubing enviornment.

Supremely gory, scary, and gruesome horror game is off limits for anyone under 18!

Few games feature blood-soaked battles with more severed body parts or gallons of spilled gore. It's gory enough to make even media desensitized grown-up gamers occasionally whistle in disbelief. Scary, terrifying, and supremely brutal horror game. Countless gruesome deaths animations, resulting in your character being decapitated, blow up, dismembered, vomiting himself to death, stabbing, self mutilation, throat slitting, heads exploding, and more. The way to kill your enemies is to impale them on spikes or blunt object such as dismembered arms using telekinesis. You can dismember enemies with pistols, shotguns, machine guns, and more. You can also stomp on your enemies after you've kill them that make them explode. This game is a nearly non-stop series of intensely graphic, highly visceral combat scenes involving zombies, and alien zombies. Players use many weapons and fists to not just kill -- but also eviscerate their enemies. Expect frequent close up and often slow-motion depictions of heads and limbs being dismembered, blood and gore spilling out of heads, arms, chests, abdomens, and gallons of dark red blood spattering all over.

Sex in the game

Occasionally corpse alien women who show 99% of a woman's bare breasts. There are frequently cartoon swimsuit magazines depicting very scantily clad top half of a woman in the game. Towards the end there is a hologram woman in a very form fitting suit that appears wherever you go.
