My 13 year old son is pestering for Halo to play on his Xbox. My initial answer was a resounding 'No' as it is rated a 16. He is now doing his usual sulking and ranting about how unfair it is as all his friends are playing on it etc. Has anyone's kids got this game, and is it ok or should I stick to my guns? I have tried to find out a bit about the content but it's all a bit vague.
Not played Halo since 3 but unless there's been a huge tonal shift in the series I wouldn't ban a 13 year old, it's not very realistic, set in the far future and pretty space opera-ish. Only word of caution is that a big draw of the series is the online play, so he should be aware of how to deal with anything in that domain.
