No there's blood. There was never much blood to begin with. When you kill an enemy and they fall over, blood pools up under them, you get the blood splatters on the screen when you're getting shot and blood bursts when you shoot enemies. I skipped the cut scene with Aztek just becuase I've seen it a hundred times at this point.

The blood does seem a bit darker though for some reason. It's almost like them being covered in oil rather than red blood.

Still, choosing to pass up this game simply due to low amounts of gore would be an incredibly foolish decision. This has been one of the most satisfying gaming experiences I've ever had. I beat it yesterday afternoon and have gone back and quick loaded from where the demo leaves off. I'm only through to the next major objective and I spent easily over an hour JUST getting to the objective and then another hour infiltrating the base slowly and patiently. Much more gratifying. This method could easily drag the game out into a 15+ hour experience.
