So Days of Ruin gives up the happy-go-pukey vibe of the previous games in this turn-based strategy series and goes for grit (and 1UP don't mean the character Grit, who's now MIA). You'll witness cold-blooded assassinations, grotesque (but fresh-smelling!) deaths from a mutated virus, and bizarre human experiments in this all-new, completely unrelated storyline that takes place in a postapocalyptic era. But don't expect too much adultness. This ESRB "Everyone" to "Everyone 10+" baby step still has some leftover cheese in a few characters and some lines of dialogue -- which the game has way too much of, by the way.
