According to ESRB, this game contains: Strong Language and Violence
Parents be warned! By no means is this game suitable for children. Not only is the violence a-plenty, it also has a certain real world quality to it that honestly can give even grown ups the scares. There is blood, bruises and the sound of breaking bones and last but not least a whole range of new purposes for innocent objects of everyday life, like pipes, guitars, bottles and kitchen knives that people wouldn't want their children exposed to. Rockstar shied away from release in some countries (e.g. Germany) because they knew it would be banned within the hour. And while I don't agree with that policy, they certainly knew what they were doing.
Everybody else, if not too faint hearted, should do him or herself a favor and check this game out. It is a unique experience in its own frightening way. Gamers should consider themselves even luckier when they have another human being at hand, for The Warriors offers a nicely done coop-mode which immediately brings back the long gone goodness of the Double Dragon fight fests of their youth.
This all applies double for those who are fans of the movie. Rockstar stayed true enough to the source material to not be exploitive, while at the same time adding their own twists and fleshing out the story a little. Simply put: you will love this game.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers should have no problem playing this. All dialogue is subtitled and there are nearly no audio clues which weren't also presented visually in some way.
