More MOH censorship!

If you live in Germany and plan on getting the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops, you may want to consider importing it.

German politicians may have nixed the proposed ban on violent video games earlier this year, but that doesn't mean the country is all hunky-dory with its blood and guts. Next month's Call of Duty: Black Ops - almost certainly one of the biggest games of the year - has been censored in its German release.

So what's been taken out? According to CODFeed, the violence has been expectedly trimmed down. As far as the campaign is concerned, a scene "where an enemy is shot in slow motion with copious amounts of gore" has been tamed down, and one involving the violent torture of a prisoner has been removed entirely. Meanwhile, explosions will no longer cause limb loss on the part of characters. The game has also been cleansed of what Germany deems "anti-constitutional symbols," whatever that means.

  9. I wish they'd censor real life instead of video games. The type of graphic violence that occurs in the real world is just incomparable to video games.

    But I don't see them banning war any time soon. Just video games.
