This game is great!
I got this game the moment it came out. i had played monster hunter 3 ultimate before, and it was fine for kids of all ages. If you are afraid of your kid learning about magic in this game, don't worry, there is none! The blood is nothing but a red flash, and you can turn it off too. There is no talking whatsoever. It gets a little antsy with the guildmarm, your quest lady, since she has on a very short skirt, but she is almost always sitting down. it is pretty hard though. You CAN get kinda drunk though. Whenever you have a drink to boost your statistics, it will make you tipsy. you walk like you're out of breath, and eventually you pass out. Overall, this game is appropriate for kids 8 and up!
