I play this game and it is downright creepy, but pretty good for its time. However, I would not recommend this game to any children under 14 years of age because of the violence, gore, and possible waking up in the middle of the night screaming for his/her parents. I also recommend doing some more research on this game so that you can make a more educated decision.

Not the goriest game ever, moderate blood, severe gore (dismemberment) disappers, hellish and frightening atmosphere. Not for small children, but if your teen is not scared by it, all the power to them. good game.
