Bad role models but not violent.
To be honest, Need for speed has never really given any good messages to kids. Drive around like this and never get caught is not how things work. The role models are terrible really because the kids may now want to be a street racer when they are older. I wouldn't say this game is violent. Either 9+ or someone who will understand that you don't respawn when you get beaten up by cops. The violence consists of crashing as in most games but nothing major. 9+
