Cod: Waw – German Version is Censored
The German Gouvenment censores computer games ways to harsh in my opinion. Read here, what happened to Call of Duty: World at War.
As some of you might know, the shooter game Call of Duty: World At War was released in America two days ago. It’ll be released in Germany tomorrow. Well, it’s a censored version. All Nazi-signs are removed. Flame throwers are removed. Yes, flame throwers. Call of Duty is known for realism, and I must say CoD4:MW was awesome at this point. The faces, guns, gun sounds, maps… almost like in a film. But now I’m asking where does the realism stay at CoD:WaW?? Why remove nazi-signs? Because they are forbidden in Germany. Why are they forbidden in Germany? Yeah, the reason I’d like to know! It’s a game, not everyone playing Germans in the game and “wearing nazi signs” is a nazi. There’s a difference between wearing them in real life. Also flame throwers are removed. Why? They are brutal! I still don’t get the point. Someone who plays brutal shooter games, gets a terrorist. I know, that sounds funny, but that’s the official reason why much shooter games are censored that harsh. At CoD:WaW u can cut enemies arms and legs and heads off. Guess what happened to this feature at German version… There’s a new single player game mode in CoD:WaW. It’s called the zombie mode. You are an American soldier and fight German “nazi-zombies”. I guess I don’t need to tell you what happened to it in German version… Did you know, that Germans were not allowed/ able to test the beta version? Why? Including nazi signs. As far as I know, an IP-blocker prevented giving beta-keys to Germans. Now what do u guys think? Much Germans will buy (illegal) English versions by the way. And I seriously don’t know anyone who likes the censoring.
