Default Why Pegi 16 rating?

Bit disappointed to see the PEGI 16 rating slapped on CoD. I thought the whole idea of avoiding gore was to keep the rating down and allow sales to kids?

My 8 year old is pretty interested in CoD and while it won't stop me from letting him use it I guess many parents would shy away.

Is anyone else surprised by this?

Does seem a little over the top..

From the PEGI site..

PEGI 16
This rating is applied once the depiction of violence (or sexual activity) reaches a stage that looks the same as would be expected in real life. More extreme bad language, the concept of the use of tobacco and drugs and the depiction of criminal activities can be content of games that are rated 16.

Can't see there being anything in that list except the realistic violence bit..
But that's a bit harsh.

Buddy - you can kill people, and as far as we know their death is somewhat animated - that's not exactly like Conker's Bad Fur Day.

I really hope there is blood, plus less 12year old means less BS in the chat window.

LOL. That's true, but IL2 was the same and that's a 12+. Just thinking of sales that's all.

I don't see that CoD has yet been rated on the PEGI site??

I believe the boxart that was leaked is only a concept and the PEGI 16 was just slapped on for show.

Besides blood splatters would probably mean MORE 12 year old ADHD coke addicts. Despite the PEGI.

They usually do get frustrated within 2 weeks though.

Probably the same reason IL-2 had it's rating. Guy bails out, you shoot him and he goes limp (dead), Gunner/Pilot gets shot and he goes limp (dead). Only reason it's 16+ is that the guy looks a heck of a lot more realistic than he did in IL-2 so it seems more violent.

Another thing might be people being stafed on the ground, or vehicles/planes exploding. You don't see someone being killed, but you know that's what just happened.

Or it could have just been something tacked on while the rating is pending?
