Hi!

I couldn't find anything official but according to http://www.spieleradar.de/news/snipe...utschland.html there is a strong likelihood that at least #azi symbols and figures will be altered. Also, as a German I wouldn't be surprised if blood and gore would be cut as well. Better wait for the official rating before you pre-order!

Kind regards

Wow. How would they censor the gorey kill-cam? That thing shows your bullet snapping bones, spraying blood and ripping organs.
Would they just remove the kill-cam entirely? That's the best part!

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they did. Violence in games in Germany is a big no-no! Still the government is one of the world's biggest weapons exporters. Hmm... Think of it what want

if i look back to the classic sniper elite they would go the same way i think ... no blood, no symbols, no killcam and (of course) no "kill hitler" mission ...

in games it always means usa = less nipples more gore, germany = less gore more nipples

I'm seeing a lot of "say bye to kill Hitler mission", you'd think that killing him wouldn't really be a frowned upon thing in a game, weird stuff.

Hi guys. Unfortunately, because of the heavy restrictions on in-game violence the version of Sniper Elite V2 for the German market will not have the x-ray component of the Kill Cam. But the rest of the game will be the same.

So no X-Ray and no Kill Hitler for Germans.

You better think before posting such nonsense.

The BPJM (the company that checks every game, movie etc for violent and erotic content) exists to ensure our children can't get their hands on violent and ... impropable content.

There is no other country in the world that learns so much about the Third Reich and it's history. Until 2004 or something Germany was literaly AFRAID to show some patriotism since everybody is so damn stupid to think german patriotism = n.azi regime. Thank god for soccer world cup.

Very similar rules apply to Australia in regards of violent content in video games. (e.g. Mortal Kombat 9) What do they want to cover up? Their history of irish criminals? o0
