Fun for older teens
Sadly, my mom doesn't let me get M-rated games yet. Solution? Free demo downloads! This review may or may not be accurate seeing as I have only played a small portion included in the demo. However, the violence in this game is overrated. There is nothing here that a fifteen-year old can't handle. There is no dismemberment, evisceration, or any other form of graphic violence. You simply strike an enemy, and a puff of blood comes out and splats on the floor. There are some cinematic finishing moves, which are typically more violently explicit than the rest of the game. In one, Kratos stabs a basilisk in the head several times, then in the eye, and then smashes its head with a large mace. There is no gore in this, but quite a bit of blood. I have also heard of a non-explicit sex scene. Fun, creative, and great for older teens. But be advised.
