First lets start off with these ratings. As far as the sex rating, it says it plain and simple there is NO sex. If you cannot see it in the game and its not then do not rate it for sex since there is none whatsoever. I believe while there is violence, that it is not a bad thing. Introducing violence could not be easier for the parent by simply letting there child play this game. I believe that this is a good thing, and i actually tell my patients that it is a new, tested, better way for teaching your kids. Times are changing dramatically with crime rates going up and kidnappings are on a high right now and violence is now apart of everyday life. Children must be taught violence before going out into the real world only to be a victim of violence simply because they did not know what it looked like. As times have changed so has violence, even if you do not like the idea of your children playing it, you should play it and be able to let your children watch. Just be sure to let them understand that violence is wrong and teach them what is right and wrong while playing the game.
