Good fore teens and mature tweens

My kids are 12 and 16 I got the game for my 16-year old and after watching him play for a while I jumped in. We had a blast! The violence can be intense at times but ive seen worse in t-rated games-- on wii. The language is strong but infrequent. I eventually let my 12 year-old play, because he is mature for his age and he needs to bond with his bro. I recommend this game for 13+!!

Its a very violent game.

Rainbow vegas is a great game. Its very violent with no proper dismemberment and etc. There is a spray of blood, a lot of blood. I don't see why its got so much blood, more blood than Call of duty. The language is there but barely noticeable. Online it has lots of language. Its a very violent game. The reviewer below me says no blood. He must be playing a different game. Its got a lot.

Is It Any Good?

This second chapter of the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas series looks more polished than the original, from sharper visuals to a sleeker interface. Levels are cleverly designed to force you to retain focus, and plenty of obstacles litter the landscapes, allowing foes to hide easily. The cover system makes for easy transitions behind obstacles. The campaign is playable with a friend, but the computer-controller squadmates still prove useful. They clear rooms quickly and efficiently. Your team's skills are balanced enough that you'll never feel like you're carrying the team. If the campaign isn't enough, there's also an intriguing Terrorist Hunt mode. Going solo or with a team, you invade a map and must kill all the terrorists within. There's also an assortment of multiplayer and co-op modes to choose from.
