Rating Summary
This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the role of a detective (Takayuki Yagami) investigating a murder. From a third-person perspective, players explore urban environments, question suspects, search for evidence, and fight various gang members. Players can engage in street fights with other characters, mostly punching and kicking enemies in order to deplete their health meters; some enemies use weapons (e.g., chainsaws, baseball bats) against players during brawls. Combat is highlighted by impact sounds, cries of pain, and blood-splatter effects. Cutscenes depict more intense instances of violence and blood: players' character beaten while tied to a chair; a restrained man getting his throat slit, accompanied by large blood effects; a rotting corpse bound to a chair. The game contains some sexual material: characters discussing “sugar baby” relationships between young women and older men; discussion about a woman being groped; references to the sex trade/working at sex clubs (e.g., "“You trick women into the sex trade…”; "He told me the quickest way to make it back would be to get a job at a sex club."). One fighting sequence depicts a man with his buttocks exposed. During the course of the game, players can visit bars to purchase drinks and chat with bartenders/hostesses; one mini-game depicts players' character drunk (e.g., “Getting kinda tipsy”; “Too drunk to have a conversation”). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
