Crackdown Receives Ban In Germany

Germans officals – in their infinite wisdom – have decided the upcoming release of the Xbox 360 exclusive Crackdown is bad for their country and have decided to ban it. This banning follows hot on the heels of two other Xbox 360 releases – Gears Of War and Dead Rising – which were refused release late last year.

As is the norm with German video game bans the Unterhaltungssoftware Selbskontrolle (we did not make up that word), has refused classification of the game citing “cruel violence on humans or human-looking characters” as their main problem with the game.

As a result of the ban the game can now not be displayed or advertised in stores.
