20. Left 4 Dead 2 - Xbox 360
Refused classification as it failed to gain a MA15+ rating. An edited version with all mutilations and questionable acts taken out has been released. It should be noted that the game is now less violent the it's predecessor which was released with a MA15+.

25. Manhunt 2 - Nintendo Wii
Rockstar never submitted the game to the Australian rating board in fear of it been banned. My thoughts are due to Manhunt 1 getting banned Rockstar would have no chance with Manhunt 2 getting released in Australia even though it the game was edited.

I'm not from Australia but I'm glad the European PEGI system we have aren't that bad when rating games. I thought I'd make this list showing the banned or edited video games in Australia however the Australian rating system is poor 15+ is the highest rating put a 18+ on the ratings for god sake. This list also games modified to meet the Australian rating system.

Games missing from the list are Voyeur, Dreamweb

Alot of these games really rated poorly, so I'm not too worried
except for Left 4 Dead 2, that I'm not happy about
Posted: 3 years, 11 months ago at Oct 13 2:35
I am not Australian nor have I even visited there. However I live in Northeastern US and I know for a fact there are more games you did not mention that are banned / censored in Australia.

I believe GTA IV, Fallout 3, and Mass Effect and many more high - budget games were censored.
I know this from reading GameInformer.

And honestly it's a shame because the so called content that was censored is nowhere and I repeat NOWHERE near as gratuitous as the Aussie goverment makes it out to be.

Alas if you are Aussie there are still nude mods and such for computer games!
