A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this game.

Positive Messages

Any positive messages overshadowed by insults, manipulation, and misdirection.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Main characters, Kyle and Mel, are good friends. Kyle's superhero dreams make them accomplish some good things, but they're snarky, slobbish college students who use people and break the law to get what they want.

Ease of Play

Simple point-and-click controls. Some puzzles unnecessarily obscure.

Violence

Comedic violence with characters getting bonked on the head by falling objects, but shown in a cartoony way.

Sex

No sex in game, but frequent mention of it. Characters make frequent homophobic jokes, suggestive remarks about masturbation, female anatomy.

Language

Occasional "s--t" or "son of a bitch." A few mentions of abortion. Lots of satirical political repartee regarding racism, gender roles, sexual orientation.

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Frequent references made to drinking (one of the locations is a bar). A ghoulish nurse talks about dispensing drugs.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Supreme League of Patriots is a downloadable adventure game containing adult themes. The title features characters who, while pursuing dreams of becoming superheroes and sidekicks, employ any and all means to use people and also break the law to solve their needs. Gameplay is easy to grasp, though some puzzles are needlessly complicated. The game's dialogue, while clever, contains many curse words such as "s--t" and "bitch" and is rife with adult references related to things such as sex, drinking, racism, and homophobia.

What's it about?

SUPREME LEAGUE OF PATRIOTS is about Kyle and Mel, two young slackers living in New York. Bored by his janitorial job at the local police station, Kyle auditions for a reality show called America's Got Superpowers and (as so many superheroes do) accidentally acquires actual superhero abilities. Unfortunately, he also acquires an offensive, shockingly un-PC personality. Armed with a new name ("The Purple Patriot"), an intolerant attitude, and a sardonic, laptop-lugging sidekick, he sets out to make his mark on New York.

Is it any good?

Supreme League of Patriots is a really fun episodic adventure that's well-constructed, surprising, decidedly un-PC, and full of laughs. It manages to simultaneously honor and poke fun at the point-and-click adventure genre. For example, references are made to adventure-game standards (such as sliding-tile puzzles and torn photographs reassembling) solely to recognize them for what they often are: unnecessary padding. Supreme League of Patriots (or "SLOP," as it's smugly referred to in-game) relies solely on situations and mature character interactions for its puzzles, an approach that works, most of the time. Of course, some players could be offended by these responses since the dialogue often gets raunchy, with sex talk and toilet humor.

Where the dialog/puzzle system breaks down is where you know what you need to do but can't without talking to someone. This means you sometimes end up talking to people for no real reason, hoping the conversation lets you move forward. Also annoying is the inventory system, which doesn't delete items you've used, making you think they're meant to be used again. Although SLOP suffers from a few minor flaws, it makes up for them in style and wit. The game looks great, and its cast is full of lively caricatures, such as a Russian ex-KGB agent, a testy Peruvian receptionist, and a flamboyant homosexual superhero. Each is distinct and memorable (everyone has his or her own theme music) and, thanks to clever dialogue and great voice acting, holds his/her own against the outrageous protagonists. So long as you aren't  too easily offended, Supreme League of Patriots is a first-rate edgy adventure for mature audiences that doesn't take itself seriously.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about mature content in games. Is this included solely for shock value and to push the envelope, or does it serve a purpose? Would the game be better if this content wasn't included?

  • Talk about culture's obsession with superheroes. Why do you think people look up to superheroes so much? Can this hero worship become twisted or misused?
