OFLC bans F.E.A.R. 2 for Christmas

Another game gets added to the Australian censorship list for Christmas. This time it’s F.E.A.R. 2.

The Office of Film, Literature and Classification have continued to wave the ban-stick, this time refusing classification for Monolith’s action-thriller game F.E.A.R. 2.

The board failed to release any reason for the refused classification, but given other games that have been blocked this year, like Fallout 3 and Silent Hill: Homecoming, it’s likely that a measure of violence, gore, drugs, or a combination of all three is at work somehow.

Typically, the decision has caused ire among gamers and will no doubt spark debate about the lack of an R18+ classification for games in Australia – but given our current political climate, things are unlikely to change any time soon.
