Sex mini-games come as somewhat of an amusing highlight for Sony Santa Monica’s God of War games. Although we were in no doubt that one would make an appearance in the franchise’s first PlayStaiton 3 outing, we weren’t aware how graphic it would be. Thanks to ESRB’s rating of the game, we can see that the experience won’t differ much from the PlayStation 2 games.
The Entertainment Software Rating Board’s mature rating of God of War III is joined by the following description of the game’s sex acts:
“Players will encounter a goddess and her two hand maidens, all topless, all holding and caressing each other.The game contains a sex mini-game. If players wish to, they may join the goddess (and only the goddess) in bed. Actual sex is never depicted as the camera drifts, then fixes on the two maidens, who watch from a distance. As players respond to the on-screen prompts with button presses, the topless maidens will continue to watch, and sometimes caress. Moaning sounds from the bed can be heard throughout the sequence.”
The rating also includes a brief description of the game’s boss fights, which you may consider to include spoilers…so look away now:
“The most intense depictions of violence occur during boss battles with the gods. Players engage in close-up and extended battles that are completed by pressing button sequences corresponding to on-screen prompts. One god will be thrown repeatedly into rocks and walls; another god’s eyes will be gauged out by thumbs. A god may get pummeled into the ground or have its legs sliced off, its head torn off. In one sequence, blood will stain the screen after each of Kratos’ blows, building up to the point of complete saturation. Immediately after “dying,” the defeated gods often have fantastical endings such as transforming into a swarm of mitelike insects or a cascade of plummeting water.
