House of the Dead: Overkill and MadWorld banned from Germany

Posted on August 19, 2008 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii

While the latest announcement of House of the Dead: Overkill was exciting for most, it seems as though Germany will be missing out on the game. Likewise, the same goes for MadWorld. SEGA delivered a brief press release a short while ago with unfortunate news: House of the Dead Overkill and MadWorld will not head to Germany.

The content in both games obviously seem to be preventing a release in Germany but it’s doubtful SEGA would change the gameplay so that the titles could be released.

    Can’t be any worse than what’s in their own history books. IMO, I just want a N.A. release and I’m good with that.

    Now Germans.

    Simply import from Europe.
    England (The largest Gaming nation in Europe), France and Spain.

    Or import via Australia and no Freeloader as well as it is PAL.

    Not really understanding Germany’s position on the banning. Unless there’s some Nazi stuff in it, which of course would cause it to be banned from several other countries in Europe. Sense I’m not seeing that as the case (though I don’t know), I see no reason for the ban. Especially when you take German “Adult Movies” into consideration!!!

    awesome this will probably increase interest in Germany with the freeloader

    I’ve played both games and honestly, House of the Dead: Overkill shouldn’t be banned. It’s really more of an E rated game compared to MadWorld in my opinion. MadWorld is more understandable to be banned in Germany than House of the Dead: Overkill. It is a shame though that they won’t be getting these two very fine games.
