Australia Syndicate Classification Refusal Explained

GamePron follows up on reports that the upcoming Syndicate shooter is Refused Classification for sale in Australia, offering the classification board's reason for not allowing the game's sale:

In order to complete the missions, a player has to engage in intense combat with swarms of enemy combatants who are clad in light armour. A variety of weapons is available and these often cause decapitation, dismemberment and gibbing during frenetic gunfights. For example, an intense sequence of violence commences when a player collects a “G290 minigun”, which operates much like a Gatling gun. A player moves through a building rapidly firing at enemy combatants. Combatants take locational damage and can be explicitly dismembered, decapitated or bisected by the force of the gunfire. The depictions are accompanied by copious bloodspray and injuries are shown realistically and with detail. Flesh and bone are often exposed while arterial sprays of blood continue to spurt from wounds at regular intervals.

This all sounds like *really good* advertizement for Syndicate.

And besides, players in Australia will just order it overseas online or pirate it if they want to play. It's their economy that will take a loss for this ban, nothing more. Heads have been ripped off since Mortal Kombat and before.. it's not shocking in the eyes of most of today's mainstream gamers. Is TF2 illegal in Australia also? lol
