While I am a fan of morality tales and clear cut good v. evil, Fable III has content that is just not appropriate for this age group. The Fable video games have tried to put the player's actions at the forefront of the game. Everyday choices, like how you interact with others, affect your moral standing. You basically have a good v. evil bar that measures your decisions and adjusts accordingly. This can be quite fun. There are very silly ways of being evil (like kicking chickens), or more serious ways (like murdering others and stealing). Many decisions in Fable III are catch 22s - that is, someone is going to die no matter what decision you make. Fable III also has lots of implied sexual content. In fact, the game keeps track of how many sexual partners you have had, and even STDs that you have caught. Now, you are not forced into any of these situations, but the option is there if you would like to pursue those avenues. You can marry, have kids, and start a life together. The family aspect may appeal to some, especially if you are a sims fan. But, I do not appreciate that the designers included achievements based on having multiple sexual partners, STDs, and other forms of fornication. The violence in Fable III includes many blood splatters and the occasional beheading in combat. Also, if you use the shock spell and the fire spell(yes, there is magic. It is a fairy tale type setting.) enemies become skeletons lying on the ground. Some cussing can be overheard and suggestive comments from some characters is noticeable. If your child plays online, he/she has the option of interacting with other players online. As you can see, there are many options for your child to meet other people, get married (or not), and engage in various behaviors. This is why I think online safety is an issue in this game. The story is well crafted, and it is a lot of fun to eventually become King and rule Albion. However, because of the serious content I think Fable III is best left in older hands who can handle the adult content presented in the game.
