Dead Rising Dead Rising has been banned in Germany by the Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle (Germany's videogames ratings board). Shame, I would have settled for green blood. Read the full story here!.

Can't say I'm surprised, they seem pretty strict about this kind of thing.

I read elsewhere that it wasn't a ban as such, they'd simply refused to give it a rating. That means it effectively an 18+ or something and anyone who wants it will have to import it.

From what I've read, Australia is the worst for this kind of thing. I think generally Germany is OK, except for any mention of "The War" or Nazis, eg. Wolfenstein.
