The game can get a little frustrating at moments, and I think it is due to a lot of areas that make it whole lot easier not to play alone . On the other hand, I would have to say that this game isn't to bad on the violence. When you die you just split into lego pieces... other than that,I really enjoyed the nostalgia within playing each of the jurassic park movies in lego form. It always had a sense of humor with the Dinosaurs. otherwise, I ended up beating this game within 2 days. that being said, I think it is a great game for a mature nine year old..
