We’ve been disappointed with the ESRB lately and their lack of funny ratings, but thanks to Killer is Dead, which is scheduled to launch this summer (probably in August, if retailers are to be believed), they are back on track.
Check out the full rating for this ‘M’ title below:
This is an action game in which players assume the role of a cyborg that hunts down criminals in a futuristic world. Players use a katana blade to stab and slash at various enemies (e.g., humans, robots, creatures) in frenetic combat. Large blood-splatter effects occur frequently during battle; decapitation and dismemberment of enemies are also depicted. Cutscenes also contain intense instances of violence, including close-up views of death/decapitation: a villain stabbing himself in the stomach; a man shot in the head; a character’s head sliced off. Players also have the ability to collect enemy body parts as spoils of battle (to increase cyborg’s skills/abilities). During the course of the game, characters sometimes engage in suggestive/sexual behavior: one cutscene depicts a man and a woman caressing and grinding against each other (moaning sounds can be heard); in several mini-games, players earn points for looking at women’s cleavage and crotch area, though no nudity is depicted.
