Rating Summary

This is an action adventure game in which players use electrical super powers to subdue urban gangs in a post-apocalyptic world. Presented from a third-person perspective, the game allows players to roam around the "open world" environment and electrocute anyone at any time, including civilians and security/police forces. While players receive "good karma" points for killing gang members, they are penalized with "bad karma" for attacking the pedestrians, objects, and other neutral parties. Combat is often frenetic and includes explosions, cries of pain, and brief blood splashes to indicate damage. Some of the more striking imagery is contained in the comic-book-panel cutscenes: Civilians are seen getting hit by a barrage of machine gun fire; security/prison guards appear gravely injured with patches of blood on their uniforms; silhouettes of impaled corpses hang from large beams. While most of these still images are highly stylized and fleeting, they serve to embellish the dark, apocalyptic tone of the storyline. During the course of the game, a boss character named Sasha appears covered in a tar-like substance, which leaves her cleavage exposed. She sometimes makes suggestive comments during battle (e.g., "Yes! Yes, I love it!" and "We stayed in bed the entire time…"). Some profanity (e.g., "sh*t" and "b*tch") can be heard in the dialogue, and a reference to drug dealers is contained in the narration.
