12 and up kids are mature enough for this game, the sex vibe is overrated, meaning that there is no sex in this game except for one mission where you fight criminals who are selling nude women for money, but they are blurred out. I never heard one swear in this game, in the missions there may be a few, but in freeplay it is swear-free. Personally i think 12 and up is a great age for this game, other parents may be over protective for the games they play, seeing how the game overrates most of the mature content in this game. 11 is on the edge of playing. maybe 11 years old should only play freeplay, but 12 years old are mature for this game this is like a turn to if you are hesitating to get your child gta, but you see that they want it cause of the freeplay, get this game. its basically the exact same, but without the constant swearing, nudity, and violence. this would be a great game for parents who have kids who want GTA's freeplay, but its to violent for you to approve, this game is the exact same, but with hacking, and much more appropriate for kids. the age limit should still be 12 and up though, the game is definitely appropriate for ages 12 and up, and i think other parents agree.
