Rating Summary: This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a professional sniper (Cole Anderson) engaged in covert military operations. Players primarily use a long-range sniper rifle to complete mission objectives, but nearby enemies can also be killed with explosives and stealth attacks (e.g., stabbing or slitting their throats from behind). Combat sequences are highlighted by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, explosions, and large splashes of blood; performing accurate headshots triggers slow-motion effects that follow the bullet to its intended target. Some sequences depict blood-splattered corpses and/or civilians getting shot; one scene depicts soldiers pushing lifeless bodies into a mass grave. The dialogue occasionally references drugs and/or sexual material (e.g., “How interesting is four kilos of coke,” “Gambling, drugs, hookers,” “He offered me an hour with his wife if I let him keep it,” “Sure, man, we're doing this for world peace. And some . . . .p**sy. Mostly the p**sy.”). The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” can also be heard in dialogue.
