Content review for this game:
Pertaining to the ESRB rating.
Content sum up: This game is intense, but there is little to no blood effects to speak of, scant language, and as always, you're encouraged to knock enemies out, not kill them. So, I recommend this game for ages 13+.
Blood: There is a negligible amount of bloodshed when you or enemies are shot and hit. Bodies do linger, and you see a few dead (unbloodied) civilain and enemy bodies scattered throughout the game. There is no option to turn blood off.
Specific scenes of blood (& gore):
(The ESRB didn't mention that there is mild gore)
Drug reference: A portion of a level takes place in the enemy's illegal drug refinery, where you see vats of the substance being cooked and workers putting it into powder form and packing it—however there is no use, just reference.
Violence: The game revolves around stealth, meaning the idea's to not get caught. In fact many missions don't let you kill anyone; if you do, it's an automatic fail, resulting in you having to restart from the last checkpoint, and other than a few key moments, the majority of the missions encourage you to knock enemies out, not kill them. This is further encouraged by you being given little lethal ammo, and instead, especially in later missions, given non-lethal ammo. Weapons are also very touchy and will usually get you killed if you try to run n' gun your way through.
Specific scenes of violence:
Mild crude humor: (The ESRB didn't mention this in their rating, although it's mild) In one scene near the beginning, the main character receives a cell phone from an agent he just rescued. When he how he hid the cell phone from the guard, the agent replies, "Just be sure to wash your hands when you're done with it."
Mild language: (The ESRB didn't mention this in thier rating, athough it's mild) There are couple uses of d*mn, and hell. And enemies will often say "What the h**l?!"
