Fun but pretty Violent

Super amazing game. I love playing the metroid series and I am obsessed. This game is really fun and I would recommend it to anyone. However, before you do, this game has violent content. The main character, Samus, must defeat aliens by shooting at them with a futuristic blaster. She has multiple ones that have fire beams, electric shocks, missiles, etc. Sometimes characters leave out colorful slime when defeated (no real blood). Might want to consider

This title has:

Too much violence
