12 is a too high rating

The game has nothing that a parent would not approve of and it is rated everyone in america so let any kid play it, a younger kid might have trouble controlling it but they should be fine. Hope this helped :)

MotoGP 14 is clearly meant for motorcycle enthusiasts, thanks to handling and physics systems that are complicated and clearly not meant for rookie racers. Players need to understand the mechanics that govern their bikes (such as front and rear braking systems) and develop a feel for two-wheeled racing. This includes figuring out how far you can lean into turns before wiping out and when to hunch into an aerodynamic position. It's not completely inaccessible for non-bikers, but growing accustomed to the sport's idiosyncrasies takes patience -- even with the ability to enable various handling aids and rewind races a few seconds should you get into an accident.

Keep in mind, too, that as a niche racing game, MotoGP 14 lacks some of the visual panache and depth found in other racers. The tracks and bikes are lackluster compared to the glossy machines and detailed circuits in bigger-budget games like Forza Motorsport 5. Plus, although there's no shortage of modes, events eventually begin feeling exactly the same. If you're not the sort of racing fan who derives pleasure from tinkering with your tuning and re-racing the same circuits over and over again to shave off a fraction of a second on this or that turn, chances are this isn't the right racing game for you.
