Rating Summary
This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the roles of special forces units/members as they pursue an escaped terrorist to prevent a global war. Players engage in military missions and use machines guns, shotguns, rocket launchers, and explosives to kill enemy soldiers in frenetic combat. Firefights are highlighted by frequent gunfire, large explosions, screams of pain, and blood-splatter effects. A handful of sequences depict more intense acts of violence: terrorists taking over an airplane; terrorists (dressed as police officers and paramedics) shooting/killing fleeing civilians inside a stadium concourse; airline passengers getting shot on a plane; prisoners shot inside a cell. In some game modes, players can shoot zombies and perform finishing attacks on enemies, often resulting in decapitation and/or dismemberment; large blood-splatter effects accompany these sequences. The game includes a finishing move in which marijuana smoke from a bong can be forced into an opponent's face; badges/banners and character outfits also depict cannabis and/or smoking figures. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the game.
