Mass Effect: Rated "M" for Mature


Apparently the word from the ESRB at this point is that the upcoming Mass Effect will receive an “M” rating. In a letter that was posted on the Mass Effect forums, the board cited among other things some “Partial Nudity.” I should warn you the following excerpt from the letter contains some minor spoilers, but they’re really inconsequential:

“In the case of Mass Effect the raters determined that the M (Mature 17+) rating with content descriptors for Blood, Partial Nudity, Sexual Themes, Violence was most appropriate. According to the publishers submission for Mass Effect, there are two non-interactive videos that depict a discreet love scene between the main character and his romantic love interests. Breast profiles can be seen during one of the videos. There is a scene in a bar where female characters wear thong underwear. This type of content is likely to have contributed to the rating and content descriptors ultimately assigned by the raters.”
