According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood & Gore, Animated Violence
Parents should be on alert. Even the game itself opens with a title screen warning of grotesque and violent imagery. And while I didn't find any of the dialogue and violence to be over-the-top and gratuitous, the game is definetly for more mature eyes. As I write this review for Carrier, it is literally only a week before the release of Resident Evil—Code: Veronica.
It's probably a smart decision on the part of all survival-horror fans to wait and see if Veronica will be vastly superior. Yet regardless of the final verdict on Veronica, I think many will be pleasantly surprised by what Carrier offers to the genre.
I have no reservations about recommending Carrier to more hardcore fans that can't get enough of this style of gameplay.
I also think that more casual gamers new to the series will find the lighter degree of overall difficulty and short, but focused length of the game to be quite enjoyable.
Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.
Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers GameCritics.com his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that GameCritics.com will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
