Blood, Language, Mild Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol and Tobacco, Violence
This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of students as they uncover evil plots against a country. Players explore dungeons and battle human soldiers and fantastical enemies (e.g., robots, dragons, giant insects) in turn-based combat. Players use swords, bows, spears, firearms, and magic spells to defeat enemies. Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, large explosions, and cries of pain. Cutscenes also contain acts of violence and depictions of blood: a man shot through the chest and bleeding; dead soldiers lying in small pools of blood. During the course of the game, characters sometimes engage in suggestive dialogue (e.g., “Show dem t*tties,” “It's not like I spend all my time on the prowl for beautiful maidens to deflower,” and “That makes your boobies look even bigger!”). Players occasionally encounter characters who smoke cigarettes and consume alcohol (e.g., “Nothing hits the spot quite like a cold beer!” and “*hic* Drink! Bring me another drink!”). The word “sh*t” is heard in the dialogue.
