Brilliant Game

It is a widely underated game that many people don't buy because of the age. The age rating could be lower, as the violence is the only thing making it an 18. The language is nothing kids 12+ won't have heard so it is up to the parents to decide if it is suitable. Overall it is a great game for kids 15+ depending on how harsh the parents are.

Not the best for kids

If there wasn't a solution for the swearing I would have marked this not for kids. You can skip the cut scenes but what contains the most swearing is the people in free roam and your character swearing during game play. The solution for that is to turn off the dialogue in the game so you can hear the sound effects and music but nobody talks, so you still have sound but you don't hear ah f*** every time someone walks by you. I honestly think the violence can get out of hand but most of the blood is confused from the biomass (the power that makes your claws and etc.). There are literally 2 lines that have sexual references in the whole game that you can see at ESRB and you wont even have to worry about if you turn off the dialogue and skip the cut scenes. In conclusion prototype 2 is ok for your twelve year old and older as long as you trust them to turn off the dialogue and skip the cut scenes.

Really gory sequel, but still fun!

Fun game, but contains very strong violence and gore. You can slash, dismember, decapitate, comsume, slice people and enemys and it contains blood and gore. The violence may disturb some people as well as scare young kids. There is strong language with many uses of the word "F---" and "S---" throughout the game. There is no sex or nudity, as well as no alcohol or drug use. Only strong violence and language in which this may be to much for young kids. Suggested MPAA R: Strong Graphic Violence and Gore, Pervasive Language, and Disturbing Images.

Prototype 2 The Truth

(SPOILER) The rating on this site for many things is wrong, yes the main character does want revenge for only the first third of the game, and even then he is working to take down the organization that created the virus and the person spreading the virus, the other two thirds of the game are dedicated to Heller finding and saving his daughter. Heller also does several things like sparing a man who he blamed, he showed mercy for the families sake this might even be considered a positive message. There may be one small reference on some obscure side quest but nothing in the main game has any relationship to drugs or alcohol. This game does contain one moment where there is a women in a really short dress but that is it, the appropriate age, any one in high school, has already seen worse than in that one seen almost everyday when the weather is warmer. The main problems with this game is the violence and the language. Heller as they say is very liberal with his foul language and so are several of the blackwatch (military division that created the virus) units in the game. There is also A LOT of violence and gore in the game, many of helers attack dismember, cause severe bleeding and several other horrible things to happen during combat, especially against larger enemies like the brawlers. Many people get confused and the the gore is worse than it is because when they only see brief snippets they often confuse biomass as gore, biomass is what the powers are based on, this has a coloring that makes it look very similar to the gore and blood.

Perfect for Teens

Prototype 2 continues the story of the Prototype. The game is very violent. It contains slaughtering, killing brutally,consuming with blood,cutting enimies with blades and claws. It's a horror game containing zombies,horrible craetures. So the violence is too bad. Otherthing is the language. It conatins very bad language in every cutscene. There is no other adult content in this game. At whole violence is an issue but there's nothing to get offended. Teens can handle it.

Prototype 2

My son bought this game 4 months ago and this is the only game he wants to go on. The age rating for the game is probably a bit over the top, but for protective parents it is suitable. I have watched my son play it on numerous occasions and I would say it should be a 15. My son reccomends it as an amazing game.
