Personally, I feel the first game was pretty mediocre making this review a bit biased. However, I believe it is extremely better. Movement, combat, powers and the story has a higher bar to its original making it more fun in general. I wouldn't focus too much on the potty language because if you're worried about your child playing this, reseaech the gore factor. Limbs are torn, people can be eaten, zombies roam the streets and even a bit of combat enhancing drugs slide in there too. Overall, if your kid can stomach it, I don't see why not.
