Stylish but super-gory shooter where you kill with abandon.

Did we miss something on diversity?

This game sure is violent but the fast gameplay makes notice nothing when you shoot an enemy’s head of. Also the games cartoony so it’s not that violent. The swearing isn’t bad either the worst word is s**t and almost is never used. The most used words are the b word and a**hole. No nudity of sex.
