I am Alive ESRB listing contains new details
I’ll admit it. I enjoy looking up the ESRB website. Their description of Mass Effect 2 was one of the funniest video game descriptions I have read. Unintentionally humorous comments aside, their summaries often provide new information regarding the content of upcoming games, and this is the case with their listing for Ubisoft’s I am Alive. Check below to see the ESRB listing for the game. Be warned, however – it seems the game will contain scenes of implied sexual abuse, according to the ESRB summary, that is.
From the ESRB Website:
This is an action game in which players assume the role of a man who must find his family in a post-apocalyptic world. From a third-person perspective, players traverse through city ruins and use a machete to kill human enemies in melee-style combat. Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, slashing sounds, and cries of pain; characters emit brief splashes of blood when hit. Players have the ability to kill or knock unconscious wounded/vulnerable enemies via finishing moves (e.g., throat slashing, impaling, pistol-whipping); these scenes are highlighted by close-up camera angles and increased player control (e.g., on-screen prompts with button-press sequences). During the course of the game, players encounter women who can be saved from nearby enemies; sexual mistreatment is sometimes implied in the dialogue (e.g., “These guys kept me as their pet, or mascot, or something.”). One sequence depicts the background silhouette of a man fondling and threatening a captured female survivor; the exchange includes phrases such as “Do you hear me? Don’t touch me!” and “Don’t be like that. You know I can make your life a lot easier if you would just cooperate.” The words “p*ssy,” “f**k,” and “sh*t” can be heard in the dialogue.
