Dead Island NOT banned in Australia

0

When a violent videogame actually gets a rating in Australia, it's newsworthy. That's pretty sad. What isn't sad, however, is that Dead Island managed to pull off this feat, allowing Australian gamers to join the rest of the world in some delicious co-op zombie battering.

Dead Island nabbed an MA 15+, the highest age restriction in the country, for its "strong horror violence" and blood. It somehow managed to get the rating in spite of the fact that Left 4 Dead 2 required content editing to get a release.

"Stunningly enough, we didn't do a thing to it," said Deep Silver, when Destructoid asked if it had been edited at all. 

I am legitimately surprised. It took me less than five minutes of playing the game to chop off my first zombie arm. Then I did the legs and head. This game dismembers humanoids by the bucket, and got a rating somehow. Impressive!
