its ok for tweens and up great for teens not the best for most kids

It doesn't have that much nudity theres like barely any blood there is kids screaming swearing in the chat but there is a mute button so you can turn off voice chat i have not got in with much people that do it but just be cautious. There is weapons and and magical powers to kill other opponents in the game. it is third person and you start out in a battle arena. Lots of action happens and its quite the good game

Meh

This game isn’t very fun. I know everyone has their own personal preference, I am just giving ‘my’ opinion. This game does not really have a purpose. I do love to play fighting/battle arena games though, this game is not my #1 choice. I recommend to people that like simple battle arenas. — What’s in the game? Violence - SMITE is an arena combat game in which the point is to kill members of the other team. Weapons and magic are used to hack or blast opponents, and there's blood in the game. But death only results in resurrecting back at the main base, sometimes with a timer so you can't immediately rejoin battle. Killing opponents and their minions results in experience points, which let characters level and gain new skills. Partial Drinking - Some of the characters use alcohol as "color" items. The use of alcohol in the game doesn't have any real effect on the game or the characters and seems a silly design element, but it does keep with the personalities of some of the featured gods. Sexual Material - Some female deities are scantily clad and expose cleavage. Partial Language - Since the title pits players against one another, emotions can run high, and some swearing can occur. The game features in-game text chat, and there's the ability to connect to voice chat as well. On the plus side, the action is so briskly paced that there's little time to read the text chat. SMITE has some voice-overs, but there's nothing of concern there.
