According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Animated Violence, Suggestive Themes, Use of Tobacco & Alcohol
Parents should be aware that they are some suggestive language sprinkled about the game and the main character, Mag Launcher, despite milk being his drink of choice, seems overly obsessed with talking about alcohol. As a catch-22, the game is easy enough that it would be a great gift to younger player or someone new to RPGs.
Dreamcast-owning RPG fans looking for games on the system willl in all honesty have no choice but to pick up Evolution. That's not to say that Evolution isn't a very good game but it is also the only RPG on the system (Eternal Arcadia, Grandia 2 and Phantasy Star Online are quite a ways off).
RPG fans in general should be aware that there are no excessive FMV clips or load times that Square has forced on the gaming public with its last two releases. Also the story is not as deep and reaching. Evolution is fun and light, so I would say it's better for someone looking for a fun diversion while you wait for the other titles to arrive.
Those who prefer RPGs heavy on battle will find a gem in Evolution.
