Now I am sure, if you are reading this, it is because your child keeps begging for this game and is complaining because "there friends have it" and "it's not that bad" and they say "why are you so mean!". Now this game, while it may be M and is rated M for good reasons, it really isn't that bad. In this game there is a strip club and prostitutes and sexual themes, jokes, and reffrences hidden inside the conversations between the characters, it can be avoided and isn't that bad. The strip club is probably the main reason I put this review on "iffy" but don't worry, this club can be completely avoided through out the game. If you play through the whole campaign there are 1 or 2 missions where you have to go to it. But when you go there, you don't have to do anything sexual, you just have to walk into the back to meet with the other characters to plan your next "heist" The nudity is that you can have a stripper give you a lap dance, and she is topless. But this is never required in the game, so if you trust your child, it shouldn't be to much of a problem. The prostitutes are also, completely optional and again, shouldn't be too much of a problem. The violence in this game is extreme but if your child plays Call of Duty or any other shooter, it shouldn't be much of a diffrence. The only thing that is a little disturbing is that you don't actually kill bad guys, because you are the bad guy. You gun down civilians and cops. You can run people over, light them on fire, blow them up, mug them, stab them, shoot them, and really anyway you can think of killing, you can do it. There are lots of drugs in this game, there are missions where you have to pick of the drugs and deliver them and it often turns into a gang fight. The swearing is over the top, constant use of every word you can think of, including the N word and F word. Even though this may seem extreme and you probably don't understand, after all those reasons, understand why I would get this for a 13 year old, is because when I watch my thirteen year old play, he isn't constantly murdering people or doing things I don't approve of, he is driving around and customizing cars, doing stunts, parachuting, flying jets, and just having a good time. The only thing that is a little dissapointing is that the only way to make money is to do "missions" or "odd jobs", drug deals, heists, stealing, assasinating, but nothing to extreme. So I think this game would be okay for a mature 13 year old, no younger.
