Black Ops Censorship Details Revealed – Germany Effected
With just over a month to go before the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops, Treyarch has revealed the censor details for their upcoming first-person shooter.
And it comes with no surprise that Germany is once again effected by the censorship. After all, it wouldn’t be the first time a game is banned or released with censored content in Germany. [Details about how the German game censorship works]
The censorship has effect on the following things:
- A scene where an enemy is shot in slow motion with copious amounts of gore has been toned down for the German release.
- A torture scene involving a prisoner has been completely eliminated from the German version.
- The song Sympathy for the Devil by Mick Jagger has been removed.
- No explosions that lead to limb loss.
- Removal of what Germany deems ‘anti-constitutional symbols’.
I’m sure the removal of the “anti-constitutional symbols” has nothing to do with the Nazi Zombies. What do you think?
