My Son loved metro 2033 but got traumatized by this. Now I’m not a strict parent at all I let my son play call of duty resident evil etc. I don’t care for this but, the game is violent, you shoot people slice there throats theres very brutal ways to kill them, Same for this I don’t care language theres a lot of f bombs s words someone says a slur in russian, but what traumatized my son is he said yes to women on accident and she gave him a lap dance full frontal nudity he was crying. I deleted the game after that. I downloaded it on my switch and I loved it AGAIN more nudity there was a scene where the main characters girlfriend pulls her bra down showing her nipple and says touch me. They were about to get nasty but it faded dark. One last thing theres nazi imagery in this game, plus theres a scene where you enter a room where Adolf Hitler is taking a speech. And someone in front of you starts shooting at everyone. Also you can drink and do drugs in this game.

To those protective parents out there

I think that the game is good for 11 and up because the strip club scene is optional to get a lap dance. You can mute the speech volume so you can not hear the swearing and the violence isn't that bad, It's pretty mild when you kill enemies there's barely any blood and you can skip cut scenes. And at the start you work with a guy named Parvel and it shows them working together to get further and closer and they help each other survive. I recommend you buy this game for your kid.
