Clive Barker's Jericho Too Much for Germany

German news outlet Heise confirms that Clive Barker's Jericho has been officially denied a rating by the USK -- the German version of the ESRB -- on account of "brutal scenes".

As a result, the game will be unavailable for purchase at retail, unavailable for Internet purchase and even unavailable for promotion and advertisement. In fact, if you live in Germany, the only way you're getting near this game is if you happen to own a PC and can prove you're 18 to some shadowy back-alley vendor. For its part, Codemasters has declined to modify the gore content for a German release, stating that they would prefer to "respect the creative vision of author and film producer Clive Barker."

I definitely did not see this coming at all...

Not only does the game appear to be soaked in has undead Nazi SS operatives running around...a combination Germany was sure to welcome with open arms...

Dead Rising, Gears, Jericho all banned in Germany. That pretty pathetic. Glad I live in US. Anyone want to bet Ninja Gaiden 2 gets the same?
