Originally posted by King Doom:I gotta say, this strikes me as a pretty good game for kids, but I will also say the only play through I've done so far was one where I did everything the nice way. There are a few 'fight them/eat the baby!' options you can choose, but I can't see them having really detailed or upsetting outcomes.
Originally posted by variablenonsense:Some of them you might not like - you can beat up other monsters, for example, and you can get an ending killing off all humans ... That being said, the beating up monsters isn't graphic or anything, and it's all reading so if you're reading to him then you could just opt to leave bits out. Good examples from playing recently:You can kill a deer and split it with another monster for dinner. You can kill a snake that's eating baby monsters and eat it for dinner (and share it with the morsels - aka baby monsters).You can beat up other monsters in competitions or to teach them a lesson for doing bad things to you.There is a scene where one monster is stabbed (well, WAS stabbed) and you can remove the knife to help him.None of these are GRAPHIC, mind you - no descriptions or depictions of the blood, etc, just the fact that you do in fact kill and eat things in the playthrough, and also that being rough and tumble / encouraged to beat things up sometimes (since you are a monster!) is present. It depends on the sorts of things that you don't mind your child seeing. I wouldn't say it's any worse than the zombies / skeletons in MC though, honestly. It's DEFINITELY no worse than say ... classic fairy tales - IE, the wolf eating the grandmother in Little Red Riding Hood. There's no gruesome depictions, just general violent actions available at times like I listed above.
