We have this game for Wii U and, although it encourages bad driving behavior such as being chased by cops and taking down other drivers to win their car, it is a lot of fun. There is no bad language, scantily clad women, drinking or other inapproriate behavior. Just reckless driving. It's a good way to let off steam for adults and I don't think it will encourage me to go out and smash into cop cars just for fun. Our console has a parental control setting that will only let our son play online if I put in the passcode. So I'm not concerned about online safety at all. He enjoys playing the game, learning about cars, pretending to get away from the cops, and letting off steam. Pretty harmless fun really.
