Rating Summary
This is an action/role-playing game in which players assume the role of a man investigating human experimentation in a futuristic setting. Players explore post-apocalyptic environments and use clubs, laser swords, and flamethrowers to kill zombie-like enemies and boss characters in melee combat. Combat is highlighted by blood-splatter effects, explosions, and cries of pain. Players can also execute finishing moves in which enemies explode into armor sections and body parts; finishing moves are depicted with slow-motion effects and large splashes of blood. One dramatic cutscene depicts the central character screaming in pain as his exoskeleton (armor) is screwed onto his body; blood-splatter effects occur, as the camera focuses on the insertion of each screw. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in the dialogue.
