Aliens vs Predator has been Refused Classification

4 12 2009

The Classification Board has Refused Classification to the upcoming Aliens vs Predator game.

I would honestly like to know if there’s anything more graphic in this game than the face melting scene in the movie Aliens vs Predator: Requiem. The Classification Board has yet to release the reasoning behind its decision.

And they are refusing to edit it!

“The content of AVP is based on some of the most innovative and iconic horror movies, and as such we wanted to create a title that was true to the source material. It is for adults, and it is bloody and frightening, that was our intent. We will not be releasing a sanitised or cut down version for territories where adults are not considered by their governments to be able to make their own entertainment choices.”

Snap.

Looks like we’ll never see this one in Australia (at least legally).

reasoning: http://www.gamepron.com/news/2009/12/03/aliens-vs-predator-vs-australia-new-game-banned-down-under/

basically, quoted from the OFLC: “The game contains first-person perspective, close-up depictions of human characters being subjected to various types of violence, including explicit decapitation and dismemberment as well as locational damage such as stabbing through the chest, throat, mouth or eyes. Characters can be stabbed with a Predator’s wrist blade or an Alien’s tail in depictions reminiscent of impalement. The Predator collects “trophies” by explicitly ripping off human heads, their spinal columns dangling from severed necks. Heads can be twisted completely around in order to break a character’s neck. Eyes can be stabbed through or gouged, leaving empty, bloodied eye sockets. It is noted that a player is able to combine manouvres together in quick succession, which further increases impact; for example, a Predator can stab a character through both eyes with its wrist blade and then rip off their head, with spinal column still attached. Extensive post mortem damage, including decapitation and dismemberment, is also possible.”

i should add, that it most probably sounds more gruesome on paper than it would appear in digital form….
