According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol, Violence
Parents will want to take note of the T-rating stamped on this game. While it's not a graphic game like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the game is definitely something that not everyone will be comfortable with their kids playing. There's some implied sex and some drinking to go along with the normal blood and violence.
Hack-and-slash fans will want to check this title out—it doesn't do much in the way of innovation, but the humor makes up for the occasionally tedious gameplay.
Casual gamers will like that the title has a minimal learning curve, making it a genuine "pick-up-and-play" experience. Unfortunately, the lack of multiplayer is a bit of a hindrance.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers can play without fear—the game features a subtitle option. (Although, reading the snarky dialogue isn't quite as much fun as hearing Cary Elwes say it.)
Mike Bracken is a 43-year-old writer and bohemian living in Florida with a mountain of movies, books, and video games.
A film critic by trade, specializing in Euro-horror, cult exploitation, and Asian action cinema, Mike has written reviews for a diverse group of print and online publications. He covers horror news, movies, books, and games at TheHorrorGeek.com and Horrorsquad.com and spent two seasons as The Horror Geek on Comedy Central's pop-culture game show, Beat the Geeks.
Mike's childhood was spent playing videogames any time he got a chance. His parents had a Pong console and his grandmother had an Atari 2600, where Mike cultivated his skills by playing hour upon hour of games like Space Invaders, Berserk, and Asteroids. From those early experiences Mike learned one thing: he loved games.
In 1999, Mike became a staff reviewer at Cinescape Magazine's website where he spent a year learning the craft of game criticism. After internal changes led to Mike leaving Cinescape in late 2000, he joined up with RPGFan in 2001 and spent several years writing reviews for them. Happy, but looking for an opportunity to expound on a wider variety of titles, Mike joined GameCritics.com and hopes to help Chi, Dale, and the rest of the GC staff bring a higher level of respect to the field of game criticism.
