The game has a beautiful soundtrack, amazing characters, and manages to be fun in general even with sensitive topics on the table, however, -1 star for around chapter 6 when you know what the next two hours of "progress" is going to be, overall, great game in general

Great but very dark

It's a very good deep rpg. With great character customization and strategy, but parents beware. This game deals with some pretty dark themes. Religious discrimination, genocide, chemical warfare, and drug addiction. It doesn't glorify any of theses thing and doesn't show them directly but it. It either shows the after effects or has them happen of screen. This game is rated T for teen but in my opinion it's close to being M and it did get the equivalent of that rating in other countries. I would recommend not letting anyone younger than 15 or 16 play it, or at least talk to children about some of these issues as they appear in the game.
