Last month, Necrovision received the dubious honour of being the first game in 2009 to be banned by the Australian Classification Board. However, it seems the vampire-infested World War I shooter has joined the likes of Fallout 3, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, and Dark Sector--games that were initially refused classification down under, only to be reclassified after content changes were made.
The game was initially refused classification for excessive violence, but the Classification Board has confirmed to GameSpot AU that Necrovision has now received an M rating after a modified version was submitted for reclassification. According to the Board, the violence in Necrovision has been toned down to the level where it is "moderate in playing impact and justified by context". With no R18+ rating for video games in Australia, any game deemed unsuitable for the MA15+ rating is effectively banned.
