House of the Dead: Overkill and MadWorld banned from Germany

While the latest announcement of House of the Dead: Overkill was an exciting announcement for most, Germany will be missing out on the game. Likewise, the same goes for MadWorld. SEGA delivered a brief press release a short while ago with unfortunate news: House of the Dead Overkill and MadWorld will not head to Germany.

I live next to ya, and i'm scared those morons will actually affect the opinion of the people here in the netherlands.

I really do not see how House of the Dead is such a problem...

How do you guys feel about WWII games like Call of Duty 1-3 and world at war?? or Medal of Honor??

Or are those banned from Germany as well?

The strange thing is, House of the Dead is being shown in Germany (Leipzig.) Apparently it's behind closed doors, but it still seems somewhat ironic.

i know madworld will sell,house of the dead is another question......hopefully both get marketing behind them.We need more mature themed games in the mix on the wii.

Your intolerance towards games never ceases to amuse me, if I lived there I would seriously be annoyed though. Thank god I don't. Am I the only one thats finds europes dislike of violent games a little ironic?

andron3770d ago (Edited 3770d ago )

Just Germany is unique because of their past. It's the same deal with films there. Some games have special watered down versions in Germany.

Other European countries find it ironic and backwards that Germany has these ridiculous censorship laws too...

The BS over Resistance and the Manchester Cathedral? But I do. And Britian wouldn't even allow the original Manhunt 2. Although your right Germany is certainly the most strict, which makes me wodner why Germans dont just import whatever game they want...

andron3770d ago

The BBFC Manhunt 2 debacle was just a desperate attempt to put the foot down.

A political move that showed how ill suited BBFC are at rating games. They should switch to PEGI as rest of Europe.

They messed up the Manhunt 2 release for Europe, still waiting to play that one :(

I can't help but find Germany's objection of unnecessary violence a bit ironic.
