Fun, but cutscenes more graphic than gameplay

I have not yet completed the game, but I did want to clarify the rating above. ***SPOILER ALERT**** In the middle of the game, there is a cutscene in which Jason rescues Claire from a captor. He enters the room, shoots the captor in the head - blood is visible. This scene was more graphic than the actual gameplay.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
