All parents have been there. Letting their children play games which have recieved the 18 certificate treatment, before they are 18. Grand Theft Auto and Manhunt are a few of these titles which spring to mind. With EA’s Dead Space being released today, they have released a statement emphasising the 18 certificate while at the same time giving a warning to parents.
“Dead Space is a bold and often bloody gaming experience filled with tension and terror – this one isn’t for kids,” said Keith Ramsdale, Vice President and General Manager of EA UK, Ireland and Nordics.
“We recognize the need to help British parents better understand the age rating system for video games, and 18 means a game is not appropriate for minors. But for adult gamers who crave gruesome action in a survival horror fiction, Dead Space promises to be a big hit!”
