Rating Summary
This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of an elite soldier fighting to stop an alien threat. Players use machine guns, shotguns, sniper rifles, grenades, and battle armor to kill enemy creatures and human soldiers. Blood-splatter effects frequently occur during the frenetic combat. Some attacks result in decapitation/dismemberment, leaving large blood stains and body parts on the ground; some areas also depict large pools of blood amid dismembered corpses. During the course of the game, players can perform various finishing attacks that depict intense acts of violence: slicing enemies in half with a chainsaw-like weapon; impaling enemies through the chest with a bayonet; repeatedly bashing an enemy's head into the ground. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the dialogue.
