Left 4 Dead 2 BANNED in Australia!
Posted 9/28/09
wow no big surprise there Australia always is strict on violent games, i mean they have banned all gta games expect for 4 and it's horribly edited. What surprises me more is the fact they let the 1st game in the 1st place but then again i am no politician there, so there is no telling at all. Well there are always torrents and imports of the game and region free xbox's but that's if you want to do that

As far as I know - in New Zealand we are still getting Left 4 Dead 2. That is so mental - what about games like Silent Hill, Resident Evil or Dead Space? They can be violent & gory games but you can still buy them. Besides the second game is very similar in nature to the first so why would the rating change?

yeah its kinda the same, like how their heads blow up and stuff but like, the graphics look better. making it look more real, that's prob why they changed the rating. even though making it look more real is freaking awesome! but its gay that its banned though GTA san aundreas was banned in australia and it ended up comming out anyway. but they might of changed some stuff, so we might still have left 4 dead 2 so theres a small chance we're gonna get it XD

Australia is just picky even Starcraft 2 has to have the blood changed to be released in Australia, this also had to be done for Germany.

hm apparently it will still come to australia now, but the game will be a censored version, i guess all the good gore and brutal scenes will be replaced with something less violent

If it's banned that means importing it is a crime...
But honestly New Zealand and Australia ban everything... NZ banned Puni Puni Poemi and Australia has banned so many video games, I'm not surprised that they banned Left 4 Dead 2. But that's what happens when you decide anything that isn't appropriate for a 15 year old isn't appropriate for everyone...


Its banned for sale in Australia, on Australian shelves, if you buy it off-shores its not illegal.

Likely-hood is that it will still be available through steam, as this is not an Australian retail outlet. The OFLC cannot legally reach sales on steam so they can do squat accept block all of steam from Australia (GG Aussy fire wall I bet they do this.)

That said, I don't personally have issues with seeing such material either, but the fact remains a child under 15 is still able to legally BUY a MA15+ game (If with a mindless parent/brother mind you). I think we may need to take that into account.

I wouldn't want my 4yr old kid playing this game.

These aren't age restrictions they are parental recommendations.
