I so love Warhammer.

Yeah,this is awesome.Ive got this game and downloaded the two expansions after completing it which gives more to do.Its very,very fun so even if you let your kids play this everyday,they'll be more absorbed in the gameplay than the gushing rainfall of blood.

Heavily violent action strategy for older teens

Dawn of War II (DoW2) is a highly entertaining strategy game. Unlike most strategy games however, there is no base -building or resource gathering, rather the game focuses only on the battle and the violence. It is very violent for a strategy game, showing blood and dismembered arms and legs as well as arm-less and leg-less torsos. The game's story also allows you to equip your squads with a variety of weapons, some quite brutal; chainswords, flamethrowers, etc. The characters solve the problem presented them through violence, hence they are not good role models. They also uses phrases such as ``Kill the greenskins`` etc. I marked it as educational because it is a strategy game that requires that you think and use your mind to outwit your opponents (whether human or AI). One other highlight is the campaign which can be played through entirely with a friend. A strategy game with a co-op campaign! That is awesome! Overall a great game for strategy and action game fans alike, it will keep you entertained for hours.

Suprizingly Safe for M

It's a good game and, unlike most M-rated games has absolutely no issues other than violence and safty! Though the game is complexe, there is no sexual content or drug abuse. As for online interactions, simply unplug your microphone and mute all players you may come in contact with.

Personally i love this game, I always like a good strategy game. The blood is not much worse than other games you see nowadays such as: Halo3 Gears of war 1&2 and others The most violent it gets is in the (Rather awesome/cool) Sync kills E.G An ork deff dread Picks up an enemy and buzzsaws it to death/ A wraithlord stabs a small Creature off the ground and pulls it off the sword while it is flailing its arms around in pain. The space marines are good and bad role models: They will do whatever it takes to keep their galaxy safe from the forces of evil, Yet they use methods of extreme violence to do so... Well who cares so do we. It is easy to play and can be very enjoyable Iffy but fun for those of 12 and up.

My favorite RTS franchise and game

Extremely voilent. Gore can be seen as troops get shot, blown up, or slashed with a chainsword- a mix of a sword and chainsaw. Still, an amazing game. You take control of 4 factions and can use their troops to a tactical advantage. Strategy is an important part of this game. This game requires you to install Steam, a game-running softwarea nd community. You also have to make a file on Microsoft Live, a program similar to Xbow Live.
