Parents should be aware that game contains more than the average amount of sexual innuendo and eyebrow-raising quips. None of it is extremely graphic, but it's definitely noticeable. Also, two of the characters are clearly engaged in a homosexual relationship that is portrayed in a very normal, positive light. Personally, I don't see this as cause for alarm—though it may raise a few interesting questions, so heads up. Otherwise, it's all standard RPG stuff that the average older child has seen a million times before with bloodless violence and tame language.

RPG fans... although the game has a few interesting aspects to it, it lacks the fire and spark required to power a long-form adventure. The characters are flat, the story is predictable and unoriginal, and it never comes together the way the great RPGs do. It gets the job done, but like I always say—life's too short for mediocre RPGs.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will have no problems. Although there is voice work for a large majority of the game's dialogue, it's all subtitled clearly. Also, since it's an RPG, everything is turn-based and moves at a pace the player dictates, meaning that there are no significant auditory cues required for successful play. It may be dull, but it's fully accessible.
