According to ESRB, this game contains: Fantasy Violence, Mild Language

Parents should have no concerns here. Shining Force EXA has nothing offensive that I can see. There's a lot of hacking and slashing, but there's no blood or gore, almost no sexual innuendo, and I'm still trying to figure out where the "mild language" was.

Shining Force fans are likely to be mixed on this one. Old school players who clamor for another strategy RPG will likely be continue to be annoyed that the Shining Force name has been perverted by being attached to another standard dungeon crawler. Fans of Neo should like this installment better—it's more of the same, only with a few added tweaks.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers have nothing to fear. The game features full text, and they have the added bonus of not hearing the same five battle cries several million times during the course of the adventure.
