Contains a lot of smoking and other drugs.

A drug called 'The Phantom Cigar' is constantly used to make time go fast. This maybe an issue to some kids but fine for others if they know SMOKING = BAD

Good but ain't amazing

Games for fine kids but the game itself isn't great. The game is very short and quite boring but will be entertaining for kids.

Perfectly fine for teens

Great game but quite a lot of violence but should be fine for teens.

Did reviewer play the game?

First of all, this is not really a stand alone game, but kind of a pre-story (that does cost money) to the actual Metal Gear Solid V phantom pain, now it should be made clear that this game is not necessary to play MGS V: Phantom Pain, its just an extra for the fans. Obviously the series is not intended for kids.

Fine for kids who can handle it

I think this game should be for 13 year old becouse my little brother played it there was no nudity the sexual themes in the game are not often but the violence is a bit to high for younger ages

Next time hire a reviewer that has actually played a game in the series

Sure it's violent(the bomb removal scene is very graphic) and the sexual themes present on the tape are pretty graphic as well. I agree that it is not for children. But when the reviewer calls it "combat orientated action" I can tell he or she has never played a game in the Metal Gear Solid series. Sure you can take out the guards by killing them. But the game is much more rewarding as a stealth game, using CQC and the tranquilizer is much more effective. Also this was intended for those who have played Peace Walker, the game preceding it in the narrative. Chico and Paz, the two characters who are subjected to torture and who you rescue in this game are from MGS: Peace Walker. Also, there is even a back story summary on the main menu of the game. So there is a back story. Also Skullface's motives are supposed to be shrouded in mystery. Overall a bad review.
