Dragon Age II rated by the ESRB; bloody and risque?

Playstation 3 RPG Xbox 360 PC News Adventure EA Action


Ready to see a description of a game that focuses entirely on what you wouldn’t want your children to be playing it for? Then you are in luck because the ESRB has released their rating for Dragon Age II, M of course, but the description for games as immense and diverse are always interesting. From the description alone it sounds like the relationship meters will return and so will the possibility of same-sex relations with your party members if you choose to pursue that course.

Beyond that there will be blood splatters which means that your players will end up being covered with blood like they used to and there will be plenty of sword swinging, explosions and even some dismemberment. Oh and apparently there will be a scene which will depict a woman about to perform fellatio, but the game does not actually show the scene. Read the below description for everything:

This is an action-adventure role-playing game in which players assume the role of a warrior who completes quests in a mythical land. Players use swords, bows and arrows, and magical spells (e.g., fireballs, energy beams) to defeat human-like enemies and fantasy creatures (e.g., giant spiders, demons, ogres, golems). Attacks are often accompanied by slashing sounds, large explosions, and cries of pain. Blood splatter effects occur when enemies are hit, and damage sometimes results in dismemberment or decapitation—blood stains and body parts occasionally appear in the environment.In one cutscene, a man’s severed head is held up then tossed to the ground.

During the course of the game, characters sometimes engage in sexual dialogue (e.g., “Why is it always about sex with you?” and “Sailing is like sex. Do it wrong, and it’ll make you sick.”). Players can also initiate brief cutscene sequences in which couples (male-female or same-sex) are shown kissing and embracing one another in a bedroom as the screen fades to black. In one cutscene, a woman kneels in front of a male character and appears to perform fellatio—there is no depiction of the sex act; the camera pans out to the rest of the room. The words “a*s,” “bastard,” and “sh*t” appear in dialogue.

    All puns aside, the first was a great RPG for a console, something that previously did not fare to well. Dragon Age got it right and the sequel should be even better.
