Rating Summary
This is an open-world action game, in which players assume the role of a former Japanese gangster (Kazuma Kiryu), trying to save an orphanage from criminals. As players traverse Japanese streets, they engage in barehanded street fighting against enemy thugs and rival yakuza members. Players use punches, kicks, and weapons (e.g., bottles, chairs, swords, pistols) to beat up enemies; players can also trigger scripted attack moves (e.g., slamming heads into a wall; slashing enemies with a sword) after building up a Heat Meter. Battles are frenetic, with screams of pain, gunfire, and large blood-splatter effects. Some cutscenes depict additional acts of violence: a man repeatedly shot at close range; a man hit in the back with a sledgehammer. The game contains some sexual material: characters pole dancing (spreading their legs, bending over, gyrating towards the camera); close-up camera angles of a woman in a bikini during a massage mini-game; sexual moaning sounds in the background; a man grabbing a woman's breasts (clothed) from behind. During the course of the game, players' character can order and drink whiskey at bars/restaurants—a status icon indicates drunkenness; consuming alcohol can cause players' character to walk erratically and adapt a drunken fighting style during combat. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in the game.
