Sudeki – Consumer Guide

Mike Bracken's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence

Parents will no doubt notice that the game's cover features a scantily-clad woman as its centerpiece and sports a Mature rating. Why Sudeki garnered an M is beyond me, though—the game does feature some blood when enemies are defeated, but it's pretty minimal gore. As far as the violence goes, in this day and age, the violence in Sudeki is almost quaint. At any rate, the ESRB dropped the ball on this one—an M rating is overly harsh. Consider this game more of a Teen rated title instead.

RPG fans are almost sure to be disappointed with Sudeki—not because it's a horrible game, but because it has so much wasted potential. This title has numerous spots where it could rise up and become something truly special—but time and again Climax opts to take the safer path instead. The end result is a tantalizing, yet frustrating experience.

Casual gamers will likely get more out of Sudeki than anyone. This is a short game that can be played in small chunks without losing the overall narrative of the game. Once beaten, there's no reason to come back—the game doesn't feature any branches in the story, or any hidden items to go back and find on a second playthrough.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers can rest easy. Sudeki features subtitles throughout, even during the voice-acted cutscenes.
