According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Violence
Parents shouldn't be too wary of the Teen rating for this game. While killed monsters do indeed leave bloodstains on the ground, the blood is green, purple, or other odd colors. Fallen good guys never bleed at all, and it's pretty innocuous overall.
Fans of the Dreamcast version will definitely want to pick this newer version up. Episode II is a new game, and the old game is still just as much fun as it used to be.
Casual gamers will also find a lot to like in the game, even if they never get the rarest rares or reach level 200.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers have nothing to worry about as the game features no voice acting or anything of that nature.
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.
