According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Violence
Parents will want to take note of the game's T rating. The title isn't overly violent or gory, but war can be a pretty sensitive subject, particularly in this day and age. Games dealing with war tend to trivialize the experience a bit, and this one struggles not to do that, but doesn't always hit the mark.
First-person shooter (FPS) fans can give this game a rental—it doesn't do a single thing that hasn't been done before, or done at least as well, if not better. It's short, not overly difficult, and a shadow of its PC cousin.
Casual gamers will get more out of the game than the hardcore FPS fans, primarily because if a gamer doesn't play every FPS that comes down the pike, this one will seem a lot more original than it really is. The production values are decidedly average, but leaning toward good as opposed to bad.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will be pleased to know that game features an option for subtitles.
A film critic by trade, specializing in Euro-horror, cult exploitation, and Asian action cinema, Mike has written reviews for a diverse group of print and online publications. He covers horror news, movies, books, and games at TheHorrorGeek.com and Horrorsquad.com and spent two seasons as The Horror Geek on Comedy Central's pop-culture game show, Beat the Geeks.
Mike's childhood was spent playing videogames any time he got a chance. His parents had a Pong console and his grandmother had an Atari 2600, where Mike cultivated his skills by playing hour upon hour of games like Space Invaders, Berserk, and Asteroids. From those early experiences Mike learned one thing: he loved games.
In 1999, Mike became a staff reviewer at Cinescape Magazine's website where he spent a year learning the craft of game criticism. After internal changes led to Mike leaving Cinescape in late 2000, he joined up with RPGFan in 2001 and spent several years writing reviews for them. Happy, but looking for an opportunity to expound on a wider variety of titles, Mike joined GameCritics.com and hopes to help Chi, Dale, and the rest of the GC staff bring a higher level of respect to the field of game criticism.
