Too much sex

Great game, but has language and sexual humour.

I haven't actually played Calamity Trigger, but I have played Continuum Shift (On the PS3), and I must say that it is a really good fighter game with fairly mild violence, but I found that through the story mode that there was frequent use of bad language, and some sexual humor that I would have expected from an M game, but other than that, its good.

Too much sex
Too much swearing

    Cartoony, retro brawler with humor, but too short.
