According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood, Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes
Parents don't have much to fear. There is no questionable language of note despite what it says on the back of the box, and there are no sexual situations. I can't imagine what the "suggestive themes" are, unless they refer to a busty Amazon-type woman making a couple weak, cartoony passes at a fleshless skeleton. (He looks embarrassed.) The violence consists of weak swordplay with a little bow and arrow action thrown in. The enemies are mostly cartoony zombies or various types of not-scary monsters, and there is no real gore or graphic violence unless you count rats exploding into green splotches.
Action Gamers are sure to be disappointed with simplistic, repetitive tasks that mostly consist of finding keys or items and flipping switches. The swordplay is broken, and there is nothing here that hasn't already been surpassed countless times over. Throw in the fact that the camera is highly problematic, and there's no reason at all to check this came out.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers get text during in-game conversation and cutscenes, but not during the snappy verbal introductions that come up when loading each level. It's a pity since they're genuinely witty, but there is no direct effect on gameplay. There are no significant auditory cues.
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.
