Bulletstorm Censored in Germany

GamesIndustry.biz (registration required) has word that Bulletstorm will carry a USK 18 + rating in Germany, even after "very heavy censorship" at the behest of the German Entertainment Software Rating Board. Word is the German version the game will not include ragdoll effects, blood, splatter, and dismembering.

There are but the classification board takes GREAT insult when games are ONLY about violence. Bulletstorm is about as low (morally) as you can get, it glorifies brutality and rewards you for coming up with creative new brutality.

One could say, that rating board doesn't rate brutality but what part of it is central to the game and whats just pointless brutality for the sake of brutality. And bulletstorm is basically 100% pointless brutality.. you get the idea.

You can say what you will but theres games, like Postal and Bulletstorm, that glorify brutality as MAIN element of their gameplay. And these will always fail classification.

And well they should. Just because someone can make something offensive for the sake of being offensive doesn't mean they should be permitted to, much less profit by it.
