Not that bad

I am the father of a 12 and a 13 year old, Recently my son saw this was on sale and asked me for it. I said I'll look into it. I watched some videos on youtube and saw none of it is all that bad. Yes there is violence and there is some blood but there is no major things in this game like sexual content and stuff like that. And after looking and watching some videos I let my 13 year old get this game. And I even watched over him and found out that you can turn off the blood and settings so everything was ok and he was happy. So if your child wants this game it is alright and this game looks super fun.

So what it has blood and gore your kids are gonna see blood eventually and if your worried about the swears then just turn off the volume and read the captions.

This title has:

Great messages
Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Ubisoft's challenge was to find a way to bring something new to the action table for this franchise without losing what made the Ghost Recon games great to being with. Thankfully, in Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint, the Ghosts are more than up to that challenge. The game should instantly feel familiar to fans of the previous Ghost Recon game. The gunplay is tight and focused, but with a heavy emphasis on tactical planning. Charging in with guns blazing is a surefire way to an instant death. But working out intel by scoping out locations, enemy positions, and defensive weaknesses, all while planning out a strategic path to your objective, is often the key to success and, more importantly, survival.

"Survival" is the key focus of Ghost Recon Breakpoint and the cornerstone that the game is built on. There's never a moment that the odds aren't against you here. Whether you're running solo (A.I. teammates are scheduled to make a return later) or teaming with a friend or three as a squad, you never shake the feeling of being hunted. It's a far cry from previous games, where you and your team took on the role of predator instead of prey. While you might be outgunned, new features in the game ensure that you're not outmatched. Taking a cue from other multiplayer-centric series, like Destiny or The Division, Breakpoint makes use of a massive hub location as a place for players to squad up, coordinate efforts, pick up essential gear, and more. Character skill trees have also been vastly expanded, adding a lot of new tricks to the Ghosts' arsenal and making each player feel unique and customized to their style of play. The game also introduces four distinct classes to choose from, with special perks and abilities tailored to their specific roles. Players don't need to feel locked in to one role, though, as the game lets players switch between classes anytime they set up camp. From start to finish, solo or as a squad, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint is a high-stakes, adrenaline-fueled game of cat and mouse that's hard to put down.
