Rating Summary
This is a role-playing game in which players follow a group of heroes as they attempt to stop a war. Players explore various environments (e.g., fields, dungeons) and engage in battles against human soldiers and fantasy creatures (e.g., dragons, giants mechs, demons). Players use swords, axes, firearms, and magic to defeat enemies. Slashing sounds, light effects, and explosions highlight the turn-based combat. One character's special attack depicts large blood-splatter effects, as several scythes spin to attack enemies. The game contains some suggestive material: dialogue such as “...[Y]ou've got quite the promising pair…though they pale in comparison to Emma's"; a prolonged sequence in which a woman gropes another character's chest (e.g., “Ahh, smooth and squishy to the touch…I could just do this forever.”). As players progress, they can visit a casino to play and bet on games of Poker and Blackjack. A handful of sequences depict a character drinking alcohol and smoking cigars, and one sequence involves a drinking contest. The words "sh*t" and “a*shole” are heard in the game.
