Great for 10-yr-old!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Video Game)
My 10 y/o son LOVES this game! I am usually pretty careful about how much and which video games I let him play (this is the only "T" rated game he has, and he only has 1 E-10 game, everything else he has is "E" rated). The action/violence level is relatively tame -- all cartoon characters battling eachother, no blood, no visible injuries, the character who loses the battle kind of flies out of the scene. The battling itself isn't very graphic, with highly fictionalized "weapons." That said, my son and his friends love the game, lots of interesting "level-ups" and plot twists, plus fun characters you'll recognize from elsewhere.

Keep in mind that Super Smash Bros. Melee has the exact same rating as this game, but later the ESRB said that if the E-10 rating had been around back then, they would have rated it E-10. Trust me, super smash bros. brawl has the exact same level of violence. All I want to say is (dont mean to contradict you) that this game isn't terribly violent.
But i agree with you with something: this is the best T rated game EVER. Yeah you're definitely right on that one.

Exactly! Great for a 10-Yr-old!
When your child feels like graduating their game to a REAL fighting game though (which if they're 10 they really already should have but whatever) , recommend them to Street Fighter 3 Online edition, Super Street Fighter 4 AE, Mortal Kombat 9, King of Fighters 13, or if they are a 3D fighting fan Tekken 6/Tekken Tag 2

Your review was so thoughtful and intelligent where kids and children are concerned. Thank you for the discussion about the use of violence in the game and whether there was blood or gore shown. Your child is lucky to have you!
