News Comments > Dead Island German Ban

Germany doesn't even allow blood. TF2 is full of robots. How could this POSSIBLY be unexpected?

Germany has no problem with blood. It has a problem with a person being shredded to gory hunks of meat and an arrow pointing at "Your liver" in a freeze frame of the spectacle.

There have been games in the past, where blood was removed or recolored to green, but it all depends on context. The display of blood is not generally forbidden.

Thanks to my buddies in the UK who can gift me uncut games, my TF2 characters still blow up in red mist, though. I just like it that way

Confiscation of the games on the B-List is not a task of the 'Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien'. The federal courts can decide to order the confiscation, but they don't have to (and rarely do). On top of that, the titles would only be confiscated from the market, and not if you already own it.

So, unless some attorney decides to tag Dead Island as "generally harmful to German society" there is no legal pressure on Steam to remove the game from German accounts.

Sometimes it's a pain to get an uncut game here (I'm lucky, I imported Dead Island two months ago), but it's not all THAT bad.

Is that statement based on actual playing experience or just the usual 'console port == crappy' comment?
No, I really want to know. This game looks interesting, screenshot-wise.
