Why is Backyard Soccer rated E10+?

Post by hefan1998 on Fri Nov 09, 2012 5:46 pm

I noticed that all the classic HE games which can be downloaded from the Atari website are rated E or eC...except Backyard Soccer which is rated E10+.

I find this very strange. It's certainly less violent than say Moonbase Commander (which is rated E), and the well-known FIFA games are rated E, so why the E10+ here?

Wow, that is odd. I don't remember anything even remotely objectionable enough to get that rating.
Also, anyone notice that for some reason they have the trailer for Freddi Fish ABCs Under the Sea on the page for Freddi 5? http://atari.com/buy-games/kids-youth/freddi-fish-case-creature-coral-cove

Just saw that trailer on that page. It shocked me that Atari could make something so preachy out of the least preachy company in children's software (this is why I was attracted to HE in the first place when I was 7).

I hope the Origami Tsunamis didn't rub the ESRB the wrong way...
