This game is PERFECT for tweens!

This game is PERFECT for tweens! Especially the tweens that want more than they are allowed to! For Instance my 11 year old was begging me for Call of duty which is to violent for him. Also at that age tweens start thinking that guns are cool and they start loving gun games and movies but those kind of gun games are always marketed for older teens and even adults with the gore and strong language. So then when are saw this game I defiantly saw a difference between call of duty and this. This game is Perfect for tweens, its got the right amount of action and language for a tween! Its got almost no blood and the main character just says "oh crap" a lot, no f bombs. And when I first looked at this review everyone in the parent reviews was defiantly kids! Like look at how many spelling mistakes the parent reviews have! I extremely disagree with common sense media's review saying that this game is for 15+ This game is basically a Indiana Jones type of game with puzzles and bad guys. This game also has educational content with puzzles and caves with treasure that you have to find. Violence: Punching and kicking, with occasional shooting. Extremely little blood (Not noticeable) Language: 3 s-words 12-damns 21 Oh crap There is some smoking of cigers. Sexual Content: Light innuendo, PG 10-12 Level. I think that if your kid is mature and has watched Marvel movies are played games like halo or spiderman, then this game should be fine for them. This video would some up the action: I recommend this game for mature 11-12 year olds that are mature. Thanks for reading my review!

Naughty Dog's Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception impresses for its intense action, big and beautiful set pieces, exceptional character interaction, and stellar production values (including entertaining cut-scenes, competent voice acting, and Hollywood-quality music). While this game doesn't veer away from what made its award-winning predecessors so popular, this third PS3 thriller in the series will have you on your seat while you experiment with weapons and hand-to-hand combat, solve environmental puzzles, and engage in well-timed leaps over chasms and other obstacles.

Once you play through the story campaign, you'll no doubt want to do it again with a friend beside you (split-screen) or online; plus there are other goodies to discover on the disc, too. There are a few very minor issues like some occasionally awkward camera angles that can obscure your view or questionable artificial intelligence (A.I.) niggles, but it feels like nitpicking when you step back and look at the interactive entertainment experience in its entirety. The game is simply one of the best in its genre.
