Commonsense is full of over protective parents. Let me explain..

This game is NOT only fighting. Common sense has failed to mention that you and the characters are fighting to save the earth from the super villain named "Galactus" and an evil character from Resident Evil 5 named "Wesker" Common sense barely even plays the games and over exaggerates even the smallest drop of blood. The characters do swear but is rarely heard and in the options you can turn it off. This game is full of many comic super heroes such as Hulk, Wolverine, Iron man, Captain America,and Thor. Great game play and the game is greatly detailed.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
age 12+

In general, fun; mild violence, however, very suggestive content.

Despite its lack of single player value, characters, and innovation, Marvel vs Capcom 3 (and its special edition) should be very exciting for multiplayer events. It is a fighter, so it does contain some violence (although mild). Several female fighters appear sexually suggestive (the Darkstalker characters, to be specific) and it contains mild language and suggestive themes. But otherwise, should be just fine for teens. Maybe even kids if you can get passed the aforementioned.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
