I think this game is OK for kids 12 and up. I does show blood but it is very rare for it to show. Htere is a lot of punching and kicking though. Some gaems that are like this is starwars battlefront 1 and 2. If your chiled has these games I think WWE 12 is right for them.

The overhaul of WWE 12 seems to have benefited the series, although it could use some tweaks. The presentation and graphics are sharp. The simpler controls help breathe life into the series, but executing the Reversal move is very tough compared to last year's game. Fortunately, between the easier controls, improved presentation, and impressive depth, WWE 12 is a solid wrestling title.
