I found this a very exciting game. However, it is rather violent. You shoot somebody and they fall to the ground. A puff of red will appear once in a blue moon when you shoot somebody. If you leave the area and run back to it 5 minutes later, you will find nothing. When an explosion occurs, bodies fly through the air and fall to the ground. YOu can't blow people to pieces but its kind of callous to watch fly to through the air. When you die, a sequence is shown in which you fall to the ground and lie there or be thrown threw the air in an explosion and land on the ground. Your teammates will say hell or damn occasionally but it does not get any worse. The body count is high, I killed about 2000 guys going through all the levels. The levels are fun though challenging. If you think your kid is mature, I would suggest this game.
