The only problem in this game is that it pretty much revolves around online and you almost have to chat with people to completely finish it with the clubs which are basically just groups you race with. If your child is mature enough not to give out personall information or cuss at people, then he or she should be fine playing this game. Frequently players will cuss online but you could just turn off the voices. When they first released the game it was admittedly unfinished with many flaws and some broken features. At the moment they have fixed that and it is a really fun game, one of my favorites actually.
