The game was rated by USK (Germany's version of the ESRB) and given the "18" rating

an 18 rating is described as: "These games may contain scenes of brutal, moderately bloody violence and they may glorify war or violation of human rights. This may include games like Grand Theft Auto IV, Halo 3, Metro 2033, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Hitman: Blood Money, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Bayonetta and UFC Undisputed 2010."

the odd thing is Germany has different views of what games deserve the 18 rating, games like ME2 and AC:Brotherhood were given an M here in the US, yet a 16 in Germany, so it really depends on how the ratings board views the game and the sort of gameplay it portrays
