u kiwi's always look after us
this game intrigues me........anything (movie, song, game, doco) banned in australia intrigues me
How pathetic its like they have never heard of crime before, and why would a game promote such crimes...I mean who on earth would be stupid enough to replicate virtual images in real life...i mean..really.
Sounds like it should be banned everywhere, it's meant to be utter rubbish.
Wasn't some of the GTA games also banned in Oz?
I don't think any were completely banned, some were altered though.
yeah they were altered, like the car bouncing when you pick up a hooker
Manhunt got banned here...
It's because we don't have an R 18+ classification for games here, so anything that doesn't fit MA 15+ or under gets banned. Australia and Singapore are the only two countries in the world where this occurs.
yeh its kinda gay..
..anything thats banned here must be KOOL...
so i might try and get it
Manhunt was banned here too, after a while.
But I have still seen second hand copies lying around shop shelves such as gamestation and CEX..
I get my GTA games from GPStore
Anything altered for aussie release - i get the kiwi or UK version
easy fix really
Also alot on online retailers here import other versions, thus its not as though the banning works
Reservoir Dogs game has also been banned in New Zealand.
Manhunt is an excellent game
I have a "friend" that played this last night. very violent. pity its not on the 360
I have one of those too... I'll let you know what "he" thought of it soon...
Has played just the "learn the controls" intro piece so far, is impressed. Looks really good. Kind of a cross between Driver and GTA, but follows the movie
You can take people hostage, execute them if you wish, shot at objects while driving... is recommended to have a look at if you can.
Yeah I agree, go for it guys.
I mean only a sicko is going to play the game, go nuts and blow away your mother and sister.
We all know those kinds of people don't exist in the real world.
It's only a video game, and nothing really has consequences in this day and age, does it?
Lets hope that something comes out where you can map digital images of people you know onto the faces of the hostages and the police. Then you can witness your loved ones splatter all over the screen!, Oh the joy!!!!!!
Don't think it'll never happen. What was too abhorrent for the 80's or 90's is ok today. Who's to say what wonderfully sick treats we can rear our five year olds on soon.
I'm like all the irresponsible parents out there, I rent R18 video games for 7-8 year old nephews, so they too can watch people die graphically.
The sooner we can lower the value of human life further in developing minds, the easier I'll sleep at night.
Yes, as posted earlier, if it's been banned it MUST be good. A highly intelligent post, that.
I see fatherhood has well and truly sunk in, congratulations
I'm suprised The Punisher hasnt been banned yet I mean, I have played it for like 2 hours through and I have lost count of how many real-life kills I have produced like, throwing people out of windows trying to get info from them etc, drown them on the toilet, pulled a drill through their head, got them stobbed/charged at by a rhino horn, smashed their head in a bear trap, burn them alive, etc the list goes on and on.
Its amazingly good fun though.
