According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood, Animated Violence

Parents, this game is rated "mature," but there isnt much to warrant the rating outside of a few cases of characters bleeding through their clothes. Theres nothing sexual or profane in the gameplay or storyline so you can rest assured that if your child likes giant robots, Enders's simple and repetitive gameplay might be a good choice.

Anime fans, remember the old saying, "be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it?" Well Enders starts off like a fan-boys dream come true only to come crashing down from the reality that the principles that go into making a good anime arent the same as those that go into making a good game. This is a game that seriously needs more variety and interactivity. However, if you cant get enough the robot dueling action that Enders offers, this still might be the title for you.

Fans of serious giant robot simulators like Mechwarrior or even Armored Core should probably beware of this title. Theres no sense of customization and feature upgrades are rather insignificant. The streamlined controls are ideal for fast and furious action, but offers very little in the way of depth.

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.
