Rating Summary
This is a role-playing adventure game in which players assume the role of a private investigator trying to solve a mystery in the 1920s. From a third-person perspective, players search for clues among crime scenes (murders), interrogate suspects, and engage in firefights with various characters/creatures. Players use pistols, machine guns, and rifles to shoot human enemies and creatures (e.g., ghoulish entities, tentacled monsters). Players also have the ability to shoot random pedestrians in the city, though there is no reward for such action. Combat and crime-scene sequences are accompanied by frequent splashes and stains of blood; a handful of scenes depict human body parts and/or entrails. The game contains some suggestive material: a brief image of a man peeping into a room while making suggestive comments (e.g., “Come on, honey, get undressed. Don't keep daddy waiting.”); in-game text also contains suggestive references (e.g., “Rumors are their boss, Brutus, defiled several women…” and “Now neither the devil nor filthy men may touch her, for I have smitten her sinful flesh...”).
