Halo 3 Parental Review
Halo 3 was rated Mature by the Entertainment Software Rating Board for Blood and Gore, Mild Language, and Violence.
Violence/Blood: 7/10. Halo 3 is action-packed, but it is definitely not as bad as some people say it is. Players use firearms and melee weapons to kill an alien alliance bent on humanity's extinction (you are a hero fighting to save humanity). Human and alien blood will splatter on the ground in combat, however limbs are not blown off and is not very graphic. Jiralhanae (Brutes) can frighten younger gamers, as can the Flood, an undead alien race led by Gravemind, a Flood creature, will also appear scary to children of young age. Violence isn't nearly as rough as in games like Dead Rising 2 or Call of Duty; Black Ops.
Sex/Nudity: 0/10. None
Profanity: Whoa. The only game I've ever heard of (I'm a big gamer) that is Mature but has "Mild Language". There is no use of sh-t, like Common Sense Media says(I play this game, and every game I review I play). There is quite a few uses of b-stard, h-ll, and d-mn. B-tch and -ss are said a few times as well in non-sexual terms. Probably nothing your kid hasn't heard at school. This is honestly nothing like the regular M-rated content.
Drinking/Drugs/Smoking: 2/10. Johnson can be seen smoking a couple of times.
Considering the violent nature of the game and the ability to play with others online (players could be exposed to stronger language, or other explicit content), I would say this game is best for ages 14+. Best wishes and thanks for reading!!!
