Rating Summary
This is an action-adventure game set in futuristic London during the upheaval following a terrorist bombing. Players control members of a hacker group intent on resisting malevolent powers through a variety of means, including violence. From a third-person perspective, players explore an open-world environment while hacking electronic devices, using stealth to infiltrate/obtain information, and engaging in combat with enemies. Players use melee weapons (e.g., pipes, crowbars) and firearms (e.g., pistols, machine guns, assault rifles) to kill enemies; combat can be frenetic, highlighted by realistic gunfire, slow-motion effects, cries of pain, and blood-splatter. Cutscenes depict further instances of violence: a man shot in the head; a crime lord beaten to death by several people; a character stabbed in the neck with a scalpel. During the course of the game, players can encounter a human-organ harvesting operation where corpses are depicted lying on tables/slabs amid bloodstained rags, surgical instruments, and severed hands or feet. The game contains some sexual material: red light districts with sex shops advertising nude dancers and sex toys; missions/storylines referencing prostitution. As players explore the open-world, their character can drink alcoholic beverages, causing the screen to distort and the character to eventually pass out. Some missions involve drugs/drug running, or have players navigating locations that depict drug packages, scales, and other paraphernalia. The words “f**k,” “c*nt,” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
