This is an action role-playing game in which players follow the story of Jack and his companions on a quest to restore balance to the world. Players explore a fantasy world, complete quests, and battle humans and creatures (e.g., dragons, demons, skeletons) in melee-style combat. Players use swords, axes, and magic spells to defeat enemies; battles are sometimes frenetic, accompanied by cries of pain, bursts of light, and large blood-splatter effects. During combat, players can perform finishing attacks on enemies, which sometimes results in dismemberment of tentacles and/or decapitation. Cutscenes depict additional acts of violence and blood/gore: civilians killed by soldiers; dead soldiers lying in large pools of blood; a character impaled through the chest; bloody limbs on the ground. Some female creatures appear topless, though with no discernible details (i.e., no nipples). The word “f**k” is heard in the game.
With the memory of their struggle buried deep in their hearts...
In this hard-core action RPG, Jack must hazard numerous challenges to bring the light of the crystals back to Cornelia, a kingdom conquered by darkness. Fight your way through fierce battles with a variety of means to defeat your enemies.
