ZONE OF THE ENDERS: THE 2nd RUNNER - M?RS
Windows PC, PlayStation 4
Blood, Mild Suggestive Themes, Violence
This is an action game in which players use mechanized robots to battle a rogue military regime. Players use missiles and laser blasters to defeat robot enemies during high-speed aerial combat; players also engage in close combat using large swords or other bladed weapons. Some “rescue missions” allow players to destroy buildings that happen to have civilians (screams can be heard)—at the end of the mission, players' score is determined by how many civilians they save. Cutscenes depict further instances of violence: characters getting crushed under a giant robot; a character getting shot in slow motion (small blood stains appear on her torso). In one extended sequence, a severely injured man (he coughs up blood) is depicted amid suspended droplets of blood. During one sequence, several billboards depict models in provocative poses wearing bikinis.
