This is one of the best games I've ever played. There is alot of violence in this game, but, hey, what game doesn't have any violence these days? It hardly has any blood and absolutely NO gore whatsoever. The language is very minor with a few "d" words here and there. DMC3 has a very dark plot and very evil villains who all want open the door to Hell. Dante, the leading character, is the hero that hates evil. Dante's objective is to save the human world, AND settle the score with his evil twin brother. It's actually a complex storyline. This could be frightening to certain kids, but could be alright for other kids too. I would not recommend this game to anyone under 14.
