According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood, Animated Violence
Parents will want to keep an eye out for this title as it lives up to its mature theme with violence and blood. Fans of the original Syphon Filter will, in all likelihood, find something to like here with this sequel. The action is similar and there are some very cool additions to the game that make it a joy to play. But I think you should keep in mind that the problem of increased difficulty as well as a lack of options could dissolve your nostalgia rather quickly. Action fans who prefer games in the vein of Tomb Raider or Soul Reaver could possibly find something to enjoy. Those new to Syphon Filter are advised to pick up the original first, as they would probably have a better time with it.
