Not longer for all ages to Play

But with the Bad Words and more violence, That's Age 15 and Up, NFS Series was suitable for All ages until Need for Speed Underground Came out in Japan and CERO Rated B for That Game and Need for Speed Most Wanted Came Out in America get "T" Rated

It has some language!

I don't think there are parental controls but if you drive around your child might hear a swear and repeat it if they don't know what those words mean!

Common sense clearly haven't played the game

Fun, realistic, and they forgot that there is police brutality in one of the last levels where Mercer beats up Luca and holds you and ana at gunpoint to tell him info. Don't do glitches or cheats to get money just get high levels at night and grind during the day and earn easy 200,000 in 30 minutes at RP lvl40,

A really great game with 2 most bad language word and mild violence

This game is really best at awesome for people who loves cars but there’s some violence like crashing into cars and police chases and there’s 2 words in this game that those are bad in real life like S word and D word so l still call it fine for all kinds of teens whatever now.

Amazing game with amazing storyline

There are the odd bad words but not very often. The storyline is very interesting and tells a lot about corruption and why it’s not great. You play as a street racer and are getting hunted by the corrupt police force.

The best nfs game I've played in a while

Nfs heat is a great game. The gameplay is awesome and it's very easy to play. The only thing I think that is very odd is that you have to pay 5$ for one car. Other than that the gameplay is great and the swearing shouldn't be a concern as it's just "s-" and "a-".

Need for Speed Heat Review and Age Rating

The NFS franchise really made a comeback with this game! The cops sometimes can be a little clueless, but over all it's a really good game, especially removing the speed cards from Payback. And visual customization is unreal. There are some positive messages after a race. The only violence would be crashing your car, but I don't think it's much violence. Now to the actual Age Rating. The reason why this game is rated teen is because of the language. Language is most present in cut scenes and story missions. Sometimes, the characters talk when you haven't done a race, which can include some language. But really, it's up to the parent, you just have to rely on your kid that he/she knows that swearing is wrong.

Best Need for Speed comeback in years!!!

The NFS games have been falling off lately. But this game is a good return to having a good game in the series. Vehicular violence is moderate. Cops are aggressive and can wreck your car seriously. In dialogue, use of strong language is present. Use of "$h!t" and mild language is heard. Language is infrequent.
