There are also scenes in which men are seen tied to stakes about to be burned alive. They struggle and cry out before they burn. There is also sight of men's bodies impaled on large spikes, although there is no blood or gore shown in these scenes. The game also contains infrequent use of strong language ('cunt' and 'fuck').
