According to ESRB, this game contains: Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol
Parents notice that the game has earned a T rating, but it's really pretty mild. There are a few drunkards running around, but the violence is definitely lighthearted. There are a few scantily-clad fairies too, but nothing too extreme. Kids who aren't quite teens will be ok with this game.
Old school gamers will love this title. It's nostalgia on a CD evoking fond memories of the 16-bit era of gaming. It's fun, it's pretty (in an old-fashioned way) and it's challenging. A definite keeper for anyone who misses the games of yesteryear.
Casual gamers will most likely find the graphics and game mechanics too archaic to enjoy them—this is their loss.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will have no trouble follwing the story, thanks to full subtitling throughout.
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.
