Apps & Games content ratings on Softonic

Content ratings help you understand the type of content you might find in an app or game, so you can decide if they are suitable for you and your family.

What do the ratings actually tell me?

Content ratings describe the minimum age we feel the content is suitable for. It does not indicate that the app was specifically designed for that particular age, or if a certain level of skill is required to play the game or use the app.

Where can I find the content ratings?

You will find the content ratings on every app or game page.

Why are some apps or games unrated?

If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page.

Rating Systems

Softonic uses the rating systems by PEGI and ESRB. The ratings you see may vary by country or region.

..the only way to defeat them is to become one of them. Immediately following a lone Marine’s successful mission to bring down the Strogg defenses and defeat their leader, the Makron (story and events from QUAKE II), the Strogg are quickly regrouping and constructing a new and more powerful Makron.

You are Matthew Kane, a member of the elite Rhino Squad, which is leading the next wave of Earth’s invasion.

The invasion force is massive and the Strogg defense is substantial. After an epic battle, and thanks to the work of you and the Rhino Squad, the fleet is finally able to secure an LZ for a massive command ship. (Think Sci-Fi D-Day invasion.)

After re-grouping, you are sent again with Rhino Squad on a dangerous mission into the heart of the Strogg base. During a deadly firefight, you are captured by the Strogg and taken to their “Stroggification” facilities.

You wake up strapped to a conveyor belt that moves you slowly through the process of converting your body into one of the Strogg. In a horrific and gruesome procedure, your body is cut and fused with metal, wires, and circuitry.

As the transformation is about to be completed with the activation of your brain implant, you are rescued by a squad of fellow Marines and returned to base.

Though you were not yet “connected” to the Strogg collective, the other modifications to your body allow you to manipulate and interface with the Strogg world in ways that no human has ever been able to before.

Realizing this new advantage, the Marines mount a massive offensive to shut down “The Nexus” (the Strogg Collective), and you are the key to accessing these previously impenetrable defenses and locations.

In the end, you are the key to victory as your squad-mates disable the Strogg defensive systems, and you bring “The Nexus” offline, and ultimately destroy the Makron.
