Some women wear revealing clothing.


Frequent violence in the form of "beat um up" hand to hand combat. Little blood is shown. In most instances enemies are rendered unconscious. In some unique take downs enemies are killed in varied ways (an example would be kicking an enemy off a tall bridge) but these aren't common. There are very infrequent uses of fire arms which are a very bloody, and leave holes in the bodies. While the main point of the game is you being an undercover cop, who stops the triad, much of the game you are just a thug who kills anyone, and steals cars, and runs from the police. It leaves a very guilty feeling for killing innocents, so most people won't kill them. 8/10
