According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence
Parents should not let any young ones near The Mark Of Kri. While there are no sexual situations or questionable language, the level of blood and gore is extremely high. To paraphrase a famous saying: Killing is Rau's business, and business is good.
Gamers in general should definitely check out the disc. With extremely high production values, unusually good game design and a ton of action, the game delivers on every level. Kri earns my highest recommendation, but be aware that it does get quite challenging in later levels. Using your noggin is required.
Action fans are in for an amazingly good game. Take the stealth-kill aspects of Tenchu and combine with the best 3D "Beat-em-up" engine that Ive seen. Add in liberal amounts of Conan the Barbarian and Samurai Jack for flavor, and bake at 350 degrees for an hour. The result? The Mark Of Kri.
Deaf and hard of hearing gamers… I'm extremely sorry to report that the entire story is told through inaccessible voiceovers with no subtitles. I have no clue why Sony did not see fit to include text. The action will still play fine, but its a glaring oversight not to include equal accessibility. Be warned, and also disappointed.
Currently, he's got about 42 minutes a night to play because adulting is a timesuck, but despite that, he's a happily married guy with two kids who both have better K/D ratios than he does.
Brad still loves Transformers, he's on Marvel Puzzle Quest when nobody at the office is looking, and his favorite game of all time is the first Mass Effect -- and he thought the trilogy's ending was Just Fine, Thanks.
