According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Violence
Parents should be advised that Gungrave has a mature rating for a reasonits very violent and there is some blood in the death animations. The violence is at least somewhat lessened by the anime-styled graphics, but its still not a game for young children.
Shooter fans who like their games with finger-numbing gameplay will appreciate Gungrave more than anyone. Theres not a lot of subtlety or nuances to the game mechanics, it basically boils down to shoot everything. While many of us grew up with games of this kind, those whove been weaned on the 32-bit and beyond era of console gaming may come away from Gungrave thinking its rather shallow.
Hearing impaired gamers will miss out on the nifty score, but not the plot, as the game is presented with the original Japanese dialogue with English subtitles.
