Hello all parents, I have a son called Kevin and he is 10. I never let my son play rude and gory video games on any platform. I have found this game different to Call Of Duty series and battlefield series. If u do not play online you will not encounter swearing and rude talk. This game has no gore and no body parts litter the floor. I reccomend this for kids 10 and over. Please all parents. I encourage you or get this game and mabey play with your kids.

Honest II

This shooter, it's not as violent as Call Of Duty but Enemy Front is still quite graphic in nature because war is HELL. You play as a Soldier on a quest to stop the nazi's. The cuss words are infrequent but are unbleeped. If your a war gamer, try this one.

Enemy Front is an ambitious game that provides a few hours of fun, and it's been a while since there was a solid, straightforward WWII-themed shooter (unlike the sci-fi spin in Wolfenstein: The New Order). Players even have flexibility when it comes to completing their missions, relying on methods such as frontal assaults or stealth to accomplish tasks. That can't be said for every game in this genre, which tend to be very scripted.

But Enemy Front simply doesn't stack up against many other first-person shooters today. The first issue is a technical one: The screen tends to freeze occasionally, especially when there's a lot of action going on at the same time. This is simply unacceptable for a first-person war game. Secondly, although it's admirable that the developer opted for a less linear design, the levels are generic, and the campaign and mission objectives are uninteresting. Finally, the main character isn't believable, mainly because of poor voice acting, which gets in the way of identifying with him. Overall, if found in the bargain bins, Enemy Front isn't a bad pick, but it doesn't aim higher than mediocrity.
