Splatterhouse banned in Germany

Splatterhouse 2

According to a Game Captain report, Splatterhouse has been refused classification in Germany.

The German ratings board, the USK, has decided not to give a rating to the ultra-violent title.

The country takes a strict stance on violence in games, and even had a localised PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops on sale due to the banning of the EU version.

Splatterhouse is due for release on November 26 for PS3 and 360.

Thanks, D’Toid.

    No great loss, judging from what they’ve shown so far.

    The refused classification doesn’t mean that it’s banned. A ban could indeed happen later (probably only several months after release) but for the time being, everyone 18 and up can still legally buy it in Germany.

    @4 right, but it´s gonna be banned sooner or later ;) And it´s hard to get your hands on a (German) version of the game because it´s not allowed to display it in stores or to advertise it.
    Well, that´s what Austria is good for :D

    Germany what are you doing? It’s not the first game that you ban, where is the liberty of expression? :(

    And most important thing, do you ban horror movies? I think i know the answer :(

    German Politician think Games are responsible for everything bad. Nobody fights for their right to enjoy an uncensored version or get a game un-banned.

    Get this. I bought CoD:BO from the UK and Steam does not allow me to play it. I can’t play the Uncensored Version if i’m sitting in germany. So i have to play the game through a proxy.

    I don’t know what’s worse, pirating games and being a criminal or buying games and being treated like one.

    As always I believe in an adults right to choose for themselves what media they consume.

    Governments of the world have lost sight of their purpose.
