The ESRB has rated the Ubisoft title ‘I Am Alive’, and described the game as follows:
“This is an action game in which players assume the role of a man who must find his family in a post-apocalyptic world. From a third-person perspective, players traverse through city ruins and use a machete to kill human enemies in melee-style combat.
Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, slashing sounds, and cries of pain; characters emit brief splashes of blood when hit. Players have the ability to kill or knock unconscious wounded/vulnerable enemies via finishing moves (e.g., throat slashing, impaling, pistol-whipping); these scenes are highlighted by close-up camera angles and increased player control (e.g., on-screen prompts with button-press sequences).”
The game has had a long and mysterious development, evolving from first person shooter to third person, and subsequently being taken off the developers and moved in house, then suffering multiple delays.
