My parents are on the fence about the games (AC: Brotherhood) m rating, bloodshed, and language. I can turn the sound off, and not do any "m-rated actions" in front of them, but the blood is off-putting, even to me. Is there a way to turn the blood effects off in the game?

Note: This is my dad's amazon account, I'm his 14yr. old son, who would like some honest answers about the game (unbiased, prefered).

To the best of my knowledge, there is no way to turn off the blood. The blood in the game comes exclusively from the battles and the cinematic killings, and it's bloody but not especially gory. Don't expect to see anything here that rivals Dead Space 2 for blood and guts, so I would consider this a tamer M-rated title.

Off-putting? Dude, you're stabbing people. It's unacceptable to think, even in a virtual environment, that killing in such an intimate way would not lead to blood letting. If you can't handle the consequences, don't do the action for crying out loud.

At your age, I was making my own horror movie with a camcorder after school. The bloody stabbings and dismemberments were the only thing of quality in it, certainly not the acting or plot. But, I turned out just fine. Haven't raped or killed anything, nor do I wish to. And I value human and animal life very much. A little (or a lot of) blood in a movie or a video game isn't going to warp you. I think cutting your children off from the unpleasant aspects of reality does more harm than good, in the long run. Censoring things and pretending they don't exist instead of explaining these things when they come up only leads to unrealistic expectations of what life is, and obscures how precarious, and therefore precious, our existence on this planet really is.

Innocence is fine and all, but indulging ignorance to preserve innocence past a certain point is irresponsible and even dangerous. Kids are smart. They'll sense that your patronizing them, even if they don't know what that is. And then they lose respect for you. That's my two cents.

When I was 14 I was demanding more blood in my video games! I even bought a Sega Genesis just so I could have blood in Mortal Kombat (Nintendo made them put in grey "sweat" and tone down the "Fatalities" for the SNES)! What kind of 14 year old are you? If you are the kind of 14 year old I'm thinking you are, you should stick to Mario & Zelda. Leave the "M" games to the Mature gamers.

PS: If you were my kid and I caught you using MY Amazon account, you wouldn't be playing any video games. Period!
