Bulletstorm cut to shreds in Germany

German censors not fond of blood splatters

EA and Epic have secured a USK 18+ rating in Germany but they have had to make significant cuts to the game in order to do so.

German gamers buying Bulletstorm will receive a severely cut down version when the game releases later this month.

In order to make a USK 18+ rating Epic and EA were told to remove ragdoll physics, blood, splatter and dismemberment.

This is the latest in a long line of serious edits and complete bans in Germany that have included high profile titles like Gears of War.
