It is not a bad game if you think about it. Honestly, it should have been rated T. It all is fake and games are just for fun.
age 12+
This is a great game for a mature child that can handle a little bit of violence and language. This game makes you think before you do, for example: If you are on a mission to retrieve a piece of equipment and there are three entry points, you need to think which entry point would be the most effective point to approach. You have to work with others/your teammates to complete the mission successfully. If you don't make the right choices you could end up failing the mission. Unlike some other popular shooter games, like gta or payday, you are not the antagonist. You might be fighting to save a group of civilians, not rob a bank or get away with murder. Over all this game is acceptable for any mature teens over the age of 12 or 13.

Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (9 ):

This tactical shooter is one of the best in the series and is easily the most gorgeous, with near photorealistic graphics depicting the flashy Las Vegas strip and surrounding areas.

Along with the single-player campaign, three multiplayer modes are available, including split-screen play on the same television or over the Internet via Xbox Live (subscriptions cost $50 a year). Online gamers can use the new Xbox 360 camera, called Xbox Live Vision, and take a photo of their face to place on the body of the main character. The PC version costs less: $49.99 instead of $59.99 for the Xbox 360 and PS3 games.
