It is one of the better games for a kid his age.  Minimal cartoon violence and no bad language or sexual content.

Beyond that, it's an excellent puzzle game that will make me think logically and have fun doing it.  Not to mention he should find it pretty funny.

Maybe, their is some intense scenes and some blood, so it depends on how mature he is.

Its pretty appropriate since there's not as much violence or gore as most games

Its a good game for a 12 year old because it involves thinking on how to solve several puzzles and it has a good sense of cartoon humor. Besides there isnt any violence, blood, bad language and/or sexual content seen or heard in the game.

Why not?

Little violence no bad language. It's perfect!

It's probably one of the best games for a 12 year old, if you're concerned about content. Portal 2 is both a relatively clean and immensly popular game, so there's no worry about giving him an unpopular game because you're worried about sparing his innocence.

absolutely. there's nothing really crass about this game and it will actually force them to think, unlike so much of the other mindless games out there.

Yes, it is an appropiate game for  12 year olds. There is minimal violence, and blood (after being shot from turrets). There is also no foul language or sexual content. It is a great game for all ages and can really make you pretty hard to solve some of the more challenging puzzles.

Yes the logic will secretly make him smarter while he will have fun with the funny lines and turrets
