View Full Version : AC 2 Classification in Australia

Hi all,

I am just posting to let the Aussies here know that AC2 has been given an MA 15+ classification here (same with Bloodlines).

I couldn't find anything with the search function, so I thought I'd post it (im also relatively new here)

welcome then Kakashiassassin,
as most gamers we already know that it's around MA15+ since AC1 is MA15+ chances the game would be the same with some/and or additional features.
thanks for reminding us

Just a few points of interest for you
AC1 was MA15+
Left 4 Dead was MA15+, had a high level of violence and graphic gore.
Fallout 3 also MA15+, high level of gore.
Left 4 Dead 2, banned in Australia for violence.

AC2 is slightly more graphic than AC1. So, unless the Australian classification board is getting stricter it should stay as MA15+.
Hope that helps.

I don't care about the rating. I want to play the game too much.

It's just utter BS that Left 4 Dead 2 is banned. It's been advertised though, I was so excited, I asked the store clerk and he said that it was definitely banned. I was so angry I almost punched him.

And Fallout 3 almost got banned because of Stimpacks looking like Morphine.

Its important to note that it was ONLY the drug references that got it pulled up. Not the violence. Personally, I think Fallout 3 was more graphic than L4D, while L4D simply had more people dieing. At any rate, AC2 is LESS graphic than both of them, so there's little cause for concern.

i'm confused, isn't L4D2 exactly the same as L4D, with a few extra weapons and meelee? why give it a different rating?

because... the people at the classification board decided it might get into te hands of children and because of the violence/detail/whatever in it...

well needless to say, the lack of an R18+ really should be fixed... but one of the attorney-generals is VETO'ing it :-/

EDIT: looks like L4D is up for reclassification, as it is no longer on the classification board website
