This game is great no matter what. It may be brief, but if you ever find it on sale, you should definitely get it. This game has you playing the role of Snake, or Big Boss, as a MSF operative pegged in a camp in Cuba. He is outnumbered and must use stealth to make his way around the camp to save his friends, Chico and Paz. You also have the choice of saving other prisoners which, in my opinion, puts a check next to the good role-model row. This game is really fun. It makes you stealthy walk around this camp. If you get spotted, all of the other soldiers will converge onto your area and start shooting you down. From commonsensemedia's review, this game sounds very gory, has a lot of swearing, and a lot of sex, but that's not the case. The blood isn't really that noticeable. When you shoot an enemy, a relatively medium amount of blood comes out of them. But the blood is barely noticeable, because the game is dark since it takes place while a storm is happening, and some of the time you have night vision goggles on. The swearing isn't that bad. I've played through the game 3 times now and haven't heard anything that you wouldn't hear in a T rated game. I didn't hear any F-bombs or anything worse than that. Then the sex. There isn't any visual representation of sex in the game, but there is a tape you get and HAVE to listen to to proceed in the mission. After saving Chico, you get "rewarded" with a tape that could help lead you to Paz's whereabouts. But, in the tape, you hear her get sexually assaulted by men. That part of the tape is very brief and isn't as bad as commonsensemedia made it sound. Now there is one part of the game that you parents should watch out for. In the last cutscene of the game, when you think that everything is okay and done with, you find out that Paz (who you had just saved) had a bomb implanted into her. There's no time for anesthesia, so the doctor has to open her right there. There's a close up on her stitches as they get removed. It isn't that bad until Paz wakes up in the middle of the operation. She starts struggling, (as any normal person would do), and you can see her guts. Now the room is a little dark, so they aren't that easy to see, but you can still see them. As she keeps struggling, more of her guts fall out, but when the bomb is removed, they all fall back in, and then all you see is a big cut on her stomach, which is then quickly patched up with gauze. I would recommend that you know you're kid. If they are sensitive to seeing gore and some blood, then this may not be the game, now if they are ready for something like this, then go for it!
