This is a multiplayer strategy game in which players assume the role of magical “summoners” who settle political disputes with arena-based battles. From a 3/4–overhead perspective, players control animal- and human-like warriors who use swords, arrows, guns, and magic attacks to kill opponents' minions in melee-style combat. Higher kill counts result in additional achievements (e.g., “leveling up”). Battles are accompanied by slashing sounds, colorful projectiles, and red blood splashes; one vampire warrior's attacks cause larger blood-pooling effects. A variety of female characters are depicted in form-fitting outfits that expose mild cleavage; suggestive jokes can occasionally be heard in the dialogue (e.g., “Sorry boys, I keep the fuzzy cuffs at home,” “Is that a rocket in your pocket?” and “For only $2.95 a minute, I'll leave you breathless.”). One playable character drinks frequently from an oversized cask, slurring phrases such as “The only time I have a drinking problem is when I spill it”; his Drunken Rage ability can be used to reduce inflicted damage. A few sequences also include warriors with lit cigarettes/smoking pipes.
