Submission + - Australia bans Soldier of Fortune: Pay Back (smh.com.au)

essence writes: The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the Office of Film and Literature Classification has refused classification of Soldier of Fortune: Pay Back for being too violent.

"..the OFLC said frequent high impact violence made the game unsuitable for those aged under 18 years."
"Successfully shooting an opponent results in the depiction of blood spray," the board said.
"When the enemy is shot from close range, the blood spray is substantial, especially when a high-caliber weapon is used, and blood splatters onto the ground and walls in the environment."
