Rating Summary
This is a role-playing game in which players assume the role of a hero on a quest to cleanse an evil corruption. From an overhead perspective, players explore a fantasy kingdom, complete quests, and battle evil forces in turn-based combat. Players use weapon attacks and magic spells (e.g., poison spray, fire bolt) to defeat human-like enemies and fantasy creatures (e.g., demons, goblins, imps). Battles are sometimes frenetic, with impact sounds, cries of pain, and explosions; some attacks are depicted from a third-person viewpoint. Characters emit blood-splatter effects when hit, leaving large stains on the ground. A handful of areas depict mutilated/dismembered corpses with exposed viscera. Cutscenes contain more intense violence and gore: a man decapitated off-screen, with his severed head held up; a woman disemboweled, with exposed entrails; a character's exposed brain extracted from his skull; a bound man's eyes gouged out. In one sequence, players make dialogue choices to determine the method of violence when extracting information from a prisoner (e.g., hot poker to the thigh; butt of a spear to the groin; toenail removal); most of these acts occur off-screen, as the prisoner is seen reacting to pain. The game contains instances of nudity: characters with exposed breasts, buttocks, and genitalia. A handful of sequences depict topless characters engaging in brief sexual activity (e.g., positioning a character's head over a partner's groin area; sliding a character's hands towards a partner's crotch); the sexual acts are depicted off-screen or with obscured camera angles. One sequence depicts a nude couple on the beach moments before engaging in sexual activity—the camera pans up and the scene fades out. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “c*ck” are heard in the game.
