Did we miss something on diversity?

My son's FAVORITE game!

This game is one of the more less violent shooters out there, despite common sense saying it is a violent shooter. I also disagree with the 15+ rating from Common Sense, it should be at least 13+. My kid LOVES this game and can't stop playing it! My husband and my son occasionally play this game together, and it is a great CO-OP game!

PLEASE take this review into account!

First off, this is a great game. There are months of content in just the original game. The only concern is violence, but it is a first-person sci-fi shooter, so that is expected. Language gets no worse than, "What the hell is that!?" unless you use voice chat. This feature can be turned off, but is needed for the endgame stuff. Although the game is all online, the online interaction is limited. This is a great entry point for pre-teens that want to get in on the first-person shooter genre.
