The butt review

This game has great action and adventure. There is a lot of violence. There is some rude language and sex stuff but a great game( probably best for adults though)

all the age raters are crazy

Firstly for PEGI the game should 100% be rated a 16 but for ESRB the game should be from TEEN - MATURE and common sense seriously don’t want any kids playing the game they are listing things that are incredibly rare to happen and the game is optional so you don’t have to anything you don’t want to. Any 12 year old would have watched something much worse whether it be a movie or even on YouTube. You should definetly let your kid play it if he’s 12+.

Not as bad!

I genuinely believe this game is not that bad! People make easy assumptions about this game being made by rockstar and all (rockstar made GTA V) but it is nothing like it the gore is more detailed due to graphics advancements and you have less choices on being bad like your character cannot have sex whith other characters. The worst thing that you can do is hog tie civilians to a railroad track and watch them get run over which I don’t think should happen. This game is recommended for mature kids and I would wait to see if they are ok to handle it. This game is amazing and fun and kids deserve this .

Language

There is a lot of language in the game but the kid has probably heard a lot of it anyway so it’s probaly fine unless you don’t want your kid hearing that stuff

OK for mature Teens

this is one of the types of games were you make your own choices You can just Rome around the west on a horse or murder people. The campaign has some swearing but middle schoolers have heard all that at school before. There is also like a second of non sexual male nudity but overall it is fine for mature tweens

Great game

Great game. Language is pretty bad along with violence. Nothing to terrible compared to some games/movies. Very little sex compared to Rockstars other games. Mature 12 year old can handle it if he or she knows what wrong vs right.
