I guess the first game got a higher rating because of blood? Wouldn't/ Shouldn't parents be more concerned about alcohol references rather then digial blood which may not be much since itis on a little old DS screen?

As far as I am concerned, nothing should affect a child IF he/ she was taught right from wrong at childhood.

Maybe it is me, but the rating seems off. Makes no sense.

Well of course parents don't really care much about alcohol reference because they know their kids are going to be drinking before the legal age anyways.

Lol.... I guess. Lol..... I'm not a parent and would not worry about "the evils" of games destroying my (future) kids, but I think the whole emphasis on blood in video games is ridiculous. And by that, I mean, having the inclusion of blood causes the rating of said game to be higher.

I can't believe parents are so frighten of red-digital blood on animated characters that are NOT real. Lol..... What do they think will happen to their kids if they happen to see digital blood??

There are so many other things in this world to worry about.

Maybe if we're lucky one of these days AO or heck even M rated games will be plenty.
