This is a role-playing game in which players lead characters on missions to save the human race. As players explore a hostile alien planet, they interact with characters, complete mission objectives, and engage in combat against aliens and human-like creatures. Players use lasers, energy weapons, giant mechanized suits, and swords to kill enemies. Battles are frenetic and often accompanied by slashing sounds, realistic gunfire, and large explosions. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: characters executed/shot off-screen; creatures impaled with swords on-screen, resulting in black blood-splatter effects. The game contains some suggestive material: female characters in revealing outfits (e.g., partially exposed breasts, buttocks); lingering camera angles on characters' breasts/buttocks; dialogue/text that states, “[W]hen you're ready for a real man 'under you,' on your team, I mean, call me okay.” During the course of the game, characters are sometimes depicted drunk; in one mission, players can build affinity with other characters by ordering them drinks or consuming alcohol (e.g., "Agree to a drink" and "Offer to buy the next round"). The word “sh*t” is heard in dialogue.
