Martial arts violence is present throughout. Threats are made and occasionally weapons are used.

There is fairly strong language for a Teen rated game. Words such as shit, bitch, ass, hell, bastard, damn, and crap used throughout the game.

There are bars (although they won't serve the main character alcohol because he's too young). Sometimes people can be seen drinking or smoking cigarettes. It is implied that the gang around the harbor area smuggles drugs to Hong Kong.

Some of the fighting scenes can be intense. There is one particular battle toward the end of the game which involves fighting 70 thugs. The gang members can be frightening due to they're violent and intimidating nature. A young woman is kidnapped. There is also one very creepy skinhead like character.
