Very Gory

It is very gory with intense violence if you like scary horror games with a lot of Gore and blood and violence you're going to like this game there's one part of the game where if you press the wrong button your eye gets poked in and it's not off screen. They move the camera in close so you can see all the Gory details if you faint because of blood and gore and violence don't play this game. Then at the beginning I'm not going a necromoph sticks its long claw to the back of someone and it can be really scary. So if you don't like blood and gore or eye pokes or intense violence don't play this game.
