Dark Sector banned in Australia
Whoops. Australia’s trigger happy censor board – the Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC) – has refused to grant a rating to D3′s Dark Sector.
The sci-fi action game contains, according to the OFLC, “violence that is high in impact and is therefore unsuitable for persons aged under 18 years to play. The finishing moves and most violent game play includes decapitation, dismemberment of limbs accompanied by large blood spurts, neck breaking spurts, neck breaking twists and exploded bodies with post-action twitching body parts. These moves are relatively easy to accomplish and once the player has mastered the moves and is able to get close to his foes, these violent moves can be executed.”
In Australia, the maximum age rating for game is 15. You might want to sort that out, Australia.
