Mr. Saunders, I have to say, I don't think most kids playing the hack and slash genre actually WANT to hack and slash people in real life. I think at least a thirteen year old can handle it, if not a little younger. Also, I ask you please look up a couple of the characters in the game. Certainly my favourite, Masamune Date, was a ruthless man who DID slaughter countless people. It is as historically accurate as any multi-character hack and slash is going to be.
