Fair amount of swearing and rough language (b---h, a--hole, damn, bastard, whore), though it is not on the same level as the violence.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Players regain health by drinking bottles of alcohol. Saloons with bottles of alcohol are a frequent setting for action. Some smoking is depicted in the game, and players can purchase drugs to smoke in an Indian pipe to receive power-ups.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is an incredibly violent action game. Players use an array of guns, explosives, knives, and other weapons to dismember and kill enemies and innocents alike. Players can torture fallen enemies by scalping them, and they will witness torture and extreme violence during in-game cut scenes. The game also features drinking, drug use, smoking, and implied sex with prostitutes.
Is It Any Good?
While White's world can be quite striking -- leaves fall from trees in green valleys while frogs croak and crickets chirp in the background -- the Wild West presented here is underpopulated, and players soon realize they are in a small, sterile territory. Exploring it gets old fast. Ultimately, there is too little to do. Even side missions, such as hunting rare animals and capturing wanted criminals dead or alive, seem tacked-on and grow repetitive.
The 18 story missions in the game rush players along, and can easily be finished in five to six hours. In the end, the violence comes off as simply gratuitous. This is definitely not for kids.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
