A Great Gore Feast

Ninja gaiden 2 is a great game but only for mature teens. It contains excessieve blood and gore, also a breif minute of nudity in chapter 10 or 11. This is a great game anyway so if you like challeging gameplay and NINJAS!!! you will love this game

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
age 17+

good for older kids but not for anyone younger than 16

It's a good game with an interesting plot but extremely gory and containes scenes were there is partial nudity so it shouldn't be played if you can't handle any of that

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
