Question Rating?

Does this have a rating yet, or is it still pending?

Its probably a safe bet to say T i'm guessing?

Rating still pending (latest info).

I didn't hear any coarse language, see any overt sexuality or blood in the trailers, so I'm guessing probably Teen, but that's me.

There was blood, but it was green. You can mostly see it in the melee combat with the retractable vibro-blades.

As Kurgan said, there doesn't seem to be any content that would warrant more than a Teen rating - however, we've certainly not seen the full game. Considering it's supposed to be a 'gritty and intense' shooter, perhaps there is some more mature content in there somewhere.

I guess we'll have to play the waiting game, as usual.

Considering it's lucasarts It'll probably be TEEN. But I figure it'll most likely be a line walking one, close to mature, but just enough below it to be teen. Those vibro blades do look like fun.

Ah I guess I'll need to go frame by frame to see the blood (those shots were very quickly cut, pun intended, on the videos).

It could very well be like the previous JK games, the major violence being "locked away" as an easter egg for sleuthful gamers to find as a hidden feature, but I still wouldn't expect anything too over the top.

Pretty much anything that has excessive blood is rated M these days....

Diablo isn't even that gory, but it still got an M rating.....

I think Lucarts isn't going to overdo it on the blood so it will get a Teen Rating.

Teen fer sure. what else? Lucasarts doesn't exactly overpower the major violence and blood in their games.


Courage is not the absence of fear, it is the presence of fear and yet the will to go on...

Well if the guts are green and only stay on the screen for a split second? ; )

Or maybe this "feature" will be removed before the game ships (ie: like the blood sprays in Jedi Outcast).

Sorry...that was my fault. I've got a crappy memory - I thought it was in the trailers I saw some blood. It wasn't. It was in the screenshots. This one, to be exact...



It shows a splash of green blood when using the retractable vibro blades. I think they must have turned blood off for the trailers coming out of E3.

In one of those trailers (not the official one - but one from IGN), there was a splash of red after a Trandoshan gets shot with a shotgun - but on closer inspection I think it's just the fade-out from the blast.

I hope they haven't decided to take blood out of the game since that screenshot was taken.

You know, this is the Unreal engine and all the Unreal games (as you know) have blood and guts in them.

So it's quite possible (as was the case in JK2 when it was previewed at E3) that we're simply seeing the blood effects that were in the original game, and it'll probably be this last detail that will be removed before the game ships, to sneak it in under the popular "Teen" rating.

And most likely with any luck you'll see mods to bring the blood back within a short time.

That "spray" in the pic definately looks like it's intended to be blood. Do Trandoshans have green blood? Who knows. But as any Ratings hound knows, green blood is "less lifelike" than red blood in a game, so they do that to get a lower rating.

Lots of Dreamcast games in the US for example had green blood in them, even though these were usually arcade ports of games that had red blood originally. And usually the game had a hidden option to change the color back to normal. Likewise Doom for the GBA got green blood for a US release, etc etc. Lots of examples.

So maybe, rather than take the blood out, they'll just make it green, who knows?

Even if there isn't blood, I have a feeling there will be a mod that does show blood (like the countless ones for JA).

Why would you include blood if that would result in less people be able to buy the game?
Or maybe there´s parental option where blood can be turned on/off. I think I´ve seen that before.

I like that idea....

Actually, what iof GTA was Teen? I think LESS people would buy it, but since it has an "M" rating, everyone wants it.

Besides, that would stop a bunch of 8 year olds from coming on "OMG, Y0U $UX |' |\/| GONN@ HAZORZ YOUZ!"

To be honest actually, I really dont know what the big fuzz about blood is. That would even be the last thing I look at when playing a game. And does it really have such a big effect on people? But that´s just my opinion off course.

Same goes for those ratings. I think they are only important in the US. Where I live, you can buy any game you want for your cash.

And are you sure those "OMG, Y0U $UX |' |\/| GONN@ HAZORZ YOUZ!" quotes only come from eight year olds?

Heh, no, but a lot of them do, and even getting rid of some of these sayings would help.

In the US, its considered "cool" to get M rated games.....

Found this to answer:
Quote:
Republic Commando uses the Karma physics system, which we got to see in action during our playtest. Expect to have full ragdoll effect and character models that accurately react when they get shot. For example, if you peg someone in the head, their neck will snap back. Likewise, if you shoot someone in the legs as they are running toward you, they may trip and fall.

One of the most impressive sections where we saw the physics system exploited was when we entered a hallway and surprised a few Geonosian elites with a perfect grenade toss placed right in between them. When the grenade exploded their bodies went flying, slamming against the wall, rebounding off and dropping to the ground with a satisfying thud. Although you shouldn't expect the level of gore that we've seen from games like Soldier of Fortune where you can blow the limbs off of your foes, the Karma physics system does allow you to pick apart droids and send their arms and legs flying.
I think this goes for Geonosians and bodyparts aswell.
So you have to wait to be sure if it´ll be teen or not.
