This game is pure carnage, parent's be aware!

This game puts the players in a post-apocaliptic world, filled with disfigured alien figures and dehumanized survivors. The main character is fighting to protect his family and save the world, but his methods are questionable, that doesn't make him a good role model. - The violence is very gory: Players can use fire bottles to burn their enemies and even a sledgehammer to dismember their bodies (There's a lot of blood and screams). - Enemies can pop out of nowhere in the dark, Which could be scary for some. The cutscene's also shown decapitations and a lot of profanity. Plus the fact that the educational content is zero, and the game is very big, I wouldn't recommend it for kid's and teen's, this game is for adults only!

Half Life 2 With Prettier Paint and Cooler Weapons

First off, this game is violent. Shotguns blow the fronts off enemies, head hosts make entire heads explode, and persistent fire will reduce enemies to giblets. However, with the exception of a single chapter all of this is directed against an evil alien species, and in that chapter you fight brutal former prisoners. The gameplay is really fun with medkits instead of regenerating health, some of the coolest weapons I've ever played with in video games, and a story that takes you through post-alien apocalypse America to meet a variety of well rounded characters.

Great role models
Easy to play/use
Too much violence
