According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Animated Violence 

Parents, not running out and picking this title up for themselves, have nothing to worry about if its for the toddlers. There are no red flags in the way of sex, gore and profanity. Though I suspect that most kids who got their first taste of an RPGs with Final Fantasy VII, will probably not be too thrilled with what Dragon Warrior I & II offers.

Old-school RPG fans will love Dragon Warrior I & II. Not only is this a blast-from-the-past, but the developers have also gone back and redid the graphics as well as include adjustments in the gameplay to make the game far more playable in today's times.

Contemporary RPG fans should probably stay aware from this one. Despite the updates, many are still not going to be impressed at how this game looks or plays. Dragon Warrior I & II is short on story and long on exploration, character development and battles. Without having a firm understanding and appreciation of where this game is coming from (as I have tried to entail in my review), most gamers will probably be appalled by it.

In the 1980s, Chi grew up in small town on the outskirts of New York City called Jackson Heights. Latino actor, John Leguizamo referred to the town as the "melting pot of the world," and while living there, Chi was exposed to many diverse cultures, as well as a bevy of arcade classics such as Pac-Man, Space Ace, Space Harrier and Double Dragon. Chi's love of videogames only seemed to grow as his parents finally caved and bought him an 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (after being the only kid in the block without one). In the 1990s, Chi finagled his way into the prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts.

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 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 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.
