According to ESRB, this game contains: Cartoon Violence
Parents can rest assured that this game includes no more violence than a cartoon, and probably less than some of those. Think of classic Warner Bros. to get an idea of how this game plays.
Fans of Sly Cooper should immediately buy this game, as it largely improves on the first.
I feel that Deaf and Hard of Hearing Gamers will miss out on finer details. Each heist is illustrated as if Bentley is projecting a slide-show, and unfortunately these have no subtext to explain the logistics. The clue hunt (Sly can find 30 clue bottles in each level to unlock extra moves) almost requires that gamers hear the telltale rattle to find all the clues, rather than rely on sight alone. The game is good with subtext for story progression and in-game instruction.
