Summary: Parents need to know that this game offers an intense and realistic thrill for those who want to put the pedal to the medal -- virtually. Parents of new teen drivers might want to consider a study that suggests that playing some racing games can increase willingness to take risks while driving in real life. This game permits kids to log online for head-to-head races via the Microsoft Xbox Live service.
Excerpt: Forza Motorsport 2 on the Xbox 360 is one of the better racing games I have played. A plethora of cars, tracks, and parts can be found in this green machine racing video game. Microsoft worked diligently to make a game for the hardcore racing fans, and the casual racing fans at the same time. The different vehicles control differently which adds some realism to this Xbox 360 video game.
Conclusion: Brothers in Arms is an excellent example of taking what could have been another typical first person shooter and adding just enough refinements to be one of the best on the market. While Hell’s Highway’s multiplayer component is something you should all but steer clear of. The campaign is an excellent fictional narrative set within an all too realistically depicted battlefield. This one’s going to be with me for a long time.
Summary: Parents need to know that this is a gritty, gruesome look at World War II. The action is bloody and graphic. An Action Cam allows players to see headshots up close, limbs being blown off bodies, and decapitated bodies floating in water. Players will use a variety of guns, grenades, bazookas and other weapons to kill their opponents. The language is very mature, with lots of swearing.
