My 9 year old is begging to play black ops and other shooting games that just don't seem appropriate to me. He claims all of his friends play them (and I'm sure they do), but I'm not going there yet. I'm pretty liberal about letting him play shooter games and I don't get overly crazy about some mild swear words. Uncharted 2 was awesome! Think Indiana Jones/James bond. Shooting, but no gore. Some mild language. Nothing horrible. My son was happy to be able to play something a little more "grown up". My husband even loves the game. Great price on overstock.
