This is, without a doubt, one of the best games of the decade. The graphics are amazing (for 2008) and the story is awesome! Snake is a moderately good role model. He wants to stop war and kill his twin (who wants to keep war at large). This game is one of the installments in the Metal Gear Solid video game series, which has been around since the late 80s. For the actual violence, it's not much. You get points deducted for killing henchmen, and even when you do kill, it's not gory. This is one of the mildest M-rated games out there, and if it weren't for the (infrequent) strong language, it would probably be rated T. VIOLENCE: 4/10. Speaking of language, there is some swears, but nothing a pre-teen hasn't heard before. "F**k", "S**t", etc. LANGUAGE: 5/10. There's no sexual content in the game, but there are some women who wear tight, revealing clothing. SEX: 2/10. There is some drug use (Snake smokes while the game data is installing) but, he'll die if he smokes too much. If you DO die from smoking, there's a message saying that it isn't healthy to smoke. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: 4/10. There's also an online mode, but it's not really a big deal for privacy.
In conclusion, buy this game if you have a PS3. It's amazing, and though there are a lot (and I mean a LOT) of unskippable cutscenes, it's worth playing. TDSplays Rate-O-Meter: 10/10.
