Not surprised by the rating. More violent games from this gen have been getting Z ratings in Japan when they are M rated here. Some are really odd like Infamous 2 is Z rated, T rated here in the US and other regions.
This game isn't to different from GTA either and every single GTA games has been rated Z.
