Question Is this appropriate for a 10 year old boy?

Is the America's Army game appropriate for a 10 year old boy?

Depends on the boy. My 8 year old plays it once in a while.

Thanks for the reply. What would you say "it depends on"?

Depends on the maturity level of the child. We are very upfront with our son. My daughters are 20 and 19, so there was never any baby talk in our house when my son was little. He was never allowed to think that movies or video games were anything more then pretend. Before his dad went to Iraq, we sat down and talked at great length about what a war was, what Dad's job was and what could happen.

I have a 10 year old niece that I would never let play AA. Not because she is a girl but because I don't think that she is mature enough.

AA is a good game, but has snipers in the game, could influence a child to do strange things. (opinion)

Another thing is that there is a parental control in the game, making it save for your child.

(Besides SF training is a pain in the ***, and you might need to help them with it_

It's not even appropriate for a 15 year old I failed the pistol test because my computer sucks so bad.

Hae the little dude go outside and play instead, or start teaching about marksmanship and gun safety if that is what he is interested in.
Forget the video game.

my daughter is 4 and her favorite movie's are the freddy krugor one's. she know's there movies and we dont do that stuff in real life. i grew up with them, and ALL the stephen king movie's (my mom was huge fan) my boys have shooting games, and a bb gun that they know that can only shoot at the targets dad brings home and sets up for them. he gets the people targets from his unit, they love them! there not even aloud to point it in anyother direction other then the target. kids are smart, they learn what WE teach them, not a video game.

A child can be exposed to a pile of things so long as they have a good guide, parent, to take them for the ride!!
