Rating Summary
This is a role-playing game in which players follow the story of fighters involved in a war for independence. Players can explore cities, interact with characters, perform quests, and battle human and fantastical enemies. Combat is turn-based, with players selecting attack moves from a menu which triggers brief animated sequences. Cutscenes also depict instances of violence and blood: a character impaled through the chest with a crystal shard; a character slashed across the face during a swordfight; blood splashes and a bleeding wound on a character's face. The game contains some suggestive material: scenes referencing a “naughty magazine,” though no images are shown; female characters wearing low-cut or skimpy clothing that reveals large amounts of breasts/cleavage. A handful of scenes depict drunk characters slurring their speech or hiccupping; one sequence allows players' character to buy alcohol in order to obtain an item—after drinking, a character says, “Whoa…(hic) I'm totally wasted…”). The words “a*s,” “bastard,” and “b*tch” appear in the dialogue.
