PalGN reports: "It's never good to be the bearer of bad news, so often the case when words like 'OFLC' and 'videogames' make it into the same article. Therefore, it's a good change to bring the news that Dark Sector, refused classification by the OFLC (Australian Office of Film and Literature Classification) in February has now been re-rated and awarded an MA15+ classification.
The game was originally considered by the OFLC to be too strong for our shores, as a "violent and sometimes gruesome game with a sinister storyline and ominous outcome. The violence and aggression inflicted upon the protagonist is of a high level, naturalistic and not stylised at all." Unfazed, Dark Sector's local distributor, AFA Interactive, confirmed in April that an altered version of the game, based on the Japanese release was being prepped for another shot at classification."
