Rating Summary
This is an action game in which players assume the role of a retired assassin (Travis Touchdown) on a quest for vengeance against an assassin cabal. Players use a retractable laser beam katana to slash and kill enemy thugs and assassins in frenetic melee-style combat. Some attacks result in enemies getting their limbs dismembered and/or sliced in-half as blood and money flow from their bodies. Cutscenes depict more intense acts of violence: assassins slicing each other into several pieces in slow-motion; an assassin sliced in half resulting in a large spray of blood from his severed waist; two women chopped into pieces after being caught within a frenetic sword fight—the women's heads sliding across the floor after battle. The game contains sexual references in the dialogue: "horny slut," "the one that's throbbing”; "I feel like that pervy teacher in a porn." One sequence depicts a kneeling woman moving a laser blade in front of a man's groin, causing the retractable laser beam to extend. An anime show within the game contains an opening credit sequence that briefly depicts a character's buttocks. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the game.
