Summary: Parents need to know that Astro Boy: The Video Game , is rated E10+ because it contains a lot of fantasy violence. Robots, some very human in appearance and behavior, engage in destructive combat blowing each other apart. Astro Boy's weapons include hand cannons, a "drill attack," and a "butt machine gun," in which guns pop out of his bottom. Also, the game's themes and action could frighten younger kids.
Excerpt: Astro Boy: Omega Factor is one of the Game Boy Advance's best games. It's fast-paced, challenging, endlessly replayable, and above all, a total blast to play. Astro Boy: The Video Game tries to be Omega Factor , but it doesn't measure up to the standard. That's not saying much; Omega Factor is a tremendously great action/arcade game that set the bar out of reach for most other games in the genre.
