Australia is very careful about what they let their citizens play. You thought America was nervous about video game violence? Dark Sector, Shellshock 2: Blood Trails, and Fallout 3 were banned this year alone. Changes were made to Fallout 3 and Dark Sector and they were allowed to be released. Well to top that list off this year, they have officially banned Silent Hill: Homecoming.
Australia’s Classification Board decided because of the games “copious blood spray, decapitations, partially dismembered corpses, and numerous scenes of attacks, fights, torture, and death” it won’t be released. They can resubmit the game for release early next year after changes are made to the violence, if they so choose. Sometimes changing main components of a game like this will just ruin it.
Now the way they do it in Australia, is a games highest rating is MA15+, which means anyone 16 and older can purchase the the game. Movies and the like can be rated R18+. So the game seems to have to go through more restrictions than our games do, to be released. Seems like they should just make it a higher age rating and still let the game be released, or be more strict on who they sell it too.
