Cool but violent

wolfenstein is a good game but very violent. It has a lot of blood and gore and swearing but you can skip the innapropriet scenes. I got this for my 13 year old son and he loves it. Sometimes I play it or I'll just watch home play. The swearing is very strong but if your kid is like 12 or older he should know not to reappear these words.

Interesting... but definitely not for children

A fun first person shooter, it is interesting and creative. As well as highly controversial as it is set in an alternate 1960s where Nazi Germany won WWII... Many Nazi war crimes are shown in the game... Including intense human experiments and torture... During gameplay the player can kill thousands of Nazis with all sorts of weapons, often resulting in gruesome results... Enemies can be blown apart and a lot of blood as well as more gruesome things will be shown... There is also a sex scene, though no nudity is shown...This game is really not meant for children, don't even consider it

Profoundly Gory but Unexpectedly Dramatically Powerful

This game has some of the most advanced, disturbing and messiest gore design in modern shooters. The violence would easily get an NC-17 rating in a movie. Entrails are stunningly detailed in and outside of bodies. Limbs tear dynamically. Untold Gallons of blood are spilled and splattered. Wonds are grisly and remain on bodies and expand on clothing. Flesh burns realistically, enemies can be gibbed into flesh and organ chunks. An explicit lobotomy is forced on a conscious character who is being held hostage. In the same room/lab many disected and mutilated nude bodies are seen (only rears are visible). A massacre at an asylum early in the game is explicitly gory ajd fulled horrifying imagery. A concentration camp incinerator room has bodies that have thier eyes gouged and blood coats the floor of the room. A person is struck in the face with a metal fist and her disfigured face is gruseomly disfigured and shown in close up as she struggles to say something and blood pours and spurts from her mouth. Throats are slit and decapitations occur frequently. 2 tastefully handled sex scenes with light nudity (partial female butt and breasts briefly). F words and a C--t word. Game is great. Masters its dark tone and oppresed world. The opening mission does an exelent job in putting us in the thematic and physical struggles of our protagonist and we feel a geniune arc form for him throught the game's acts. Well written chaarcters and impassioned voice performances. Immersion is detailed and effective (manuevering thru your sewer base as Nazis patrol just feet above you is Nerve racking!). Lots of level variety, legnthy campaign. Satisfying weaponry and inspired enemy forces. Jaw Dropping set pieces that are excellently paced. More exploration than many current shooters that goes beyond just looking into the vorner of every room for an intel laptop.

A great game!

Now, to be clear, in Wolfenstein you fight Nazis. Because of this, several scenes involve innocents being shot, gad chambers, incineration chambers and brain and eye removal. In the game you can kill Nazis in ways like: putting a knife through their head, slit their throats and stab their' stomachs, gun them down with blood staining the environments, but bodies fade, you can blow off all limbs, and blow holes in their torsos, which results in blood, exposed ribcages and screaming. People in cutscenes die in revolting ways. A man gets all of his limbs blown off, and bleeds everywhere, a hospital is full of blood and dead people. (Parents should note that this is disturbing, gory and graphic) Nazis can get blown into chunks of gore. There are two sex scenes. In the first, you can see the side of a woman's breast, and later her nipple (not plural.) however it it very graphic and would be enough cause by itself for an M rating. The second is not as graphic, but is still very sexual. The game has lots of swearing. If a player chooses to save Wyatt, the swearing is minimal. If the other option is chosen the F-word is used over 90 times, and other profanities (s**t, d**n and hell) are used without mercy.

Visually impressive but fails to come together.

If you've played the developers game Rage then you are looking at this being the more tedious, less interesting and vulgar older brother. Replacing what makes alot of shooters work with shock factor and sex scenes. Dual wielding guns is superfluous and does not serve as an advantage as it does in older Halo games and the like. It's a throw away feature. The guns are usually basic and simple aside from the automatic repeater shotgun which is nice but not so novel once you see there is little else in weapons ingenuity. The game mechanics work well but very dull side quests that often strip you of most if not all of your weapons make you groan to get to the next action sequence. The continuity of the game gets broken up so much that it becomes laborious to trudge through often disappointing the player with sequential boring tasks that seem to only fill time to make the game appear longer than it really is. The prequel to this game is not as visually impressive but is put together much better having a pace and gameplay that is overall much more compelling. the atriocities depicted in the game are disturbing at times but come out as the one thing done well in the game that is interesting and original. I like this part of the story because it really is what moves the game forward as you want to eradicate this terrible evil with machine guns, unfortunately with the turtle pace, run of the mill gameplay and unecessary graphic sex this is not worth the time of the average player who has access to many games done much better in the same genre. For obsessive adult FPS fans only.

Gory as hell

The sex and language isn't that much of a problem I honestly don't know why they put strong sexual content on the back of the case, there are only two scenes that don't show nudity and one of them you can barley even see the people having sex. Language happens occasionally (f**k, s__t) and not in large amounts. VIOLENCE VIOLENCE VIOLENCE!!! There is a massive amount of realistic gore and violence. Enemies heads and other limbs fall of in bloody explosions nazis shoot inosent children in the face and when you use some weapons against enemies they will blow up into tiny chunks. In one scene a helicopter perposely chops a nazis head off with the propellers.
