I have saved $50.00 to buy this great game. The game has very nice graphics easy to learn controls and overall amazing. However, there is some violence (by blowing up tanks, planes, and helicopters) but there is absolutely no blood or gore. Occasionally, but not very often (I mean not often at all) you will hear Da*n or He*l a few times but kids hear much worse at school. Don't listen to the rating about alcohol reference I haven't seen and alcohol anywhere in this game. Amazing game, I think 10 and up is good.
