Rating Summary
This is a first-person shooter in which players join a group of Vault Hunters attempting to repel an attack on the moon. Players use a pistols, machine guns, grenade launchers, and shotguns to kill human soldiers and various robot-like entities. Combat can be frenetic at times, highlighted by cries of pain and realistic gunfire; human enemies emit large splashes of blood when hit. There are occasional instances in which players must commit violence towards unarmed characters in order to finish a mission objective. Players also have the ability to shoot at deceased enemies, resulting in more blood effects. During the course of the game, some dialogue contains sexual references (e.g., “I hereby promise not to tell people the slutty clown is also a slutty mechanic”; “I didn't want my girlfriend to strand me on the moon with no food and a raging ladyboner”; “Available for mercenary work, S&M, and birthday parties.”). The words “a*shole,” “pr*ck,” and “b*tch” appear in dialogue.
