Enjoying the game blah blah blah; positive opening. Let me cut to the chase. The small things can really ruin a game for me. Something like cutting out content that everyone gets to play and I don't for no reason whatsoever, is seriously pissing me off. 

 

My country holds no weird laws for what may be depicted in a videogame like some others in Europe. Most countries here do not. In fact, we have much more lenient guidelines than the US as far as violence , drugs and especially sex is concerned. But because a couple countries in Europe do have special laws, you decide to censor it for EVERYONE? What the hell is this about? I've been playing games for 20 years and never experienced something like this before. Is it really that much trouble for you to bring out different versions across Europe? Doesn't appear to be much trouble for anyone else.

 

Either give me a download option that adds in the original content as intended, or give me my money back. This is absolutely ridiculous. I will not play a censored game for no reason. Especially one I paid for. You should have put a massive warning on the box that the game was censored. That way I would have known to at least import the game. Do you hear how crazy that sounds?

 

You should really be ashamed that I had to come here and point this out.

I managed to get a copy of the uncensored game and playing through it now. The hoops you have to jump through.

 

Which is crazy. There is no way to get my money back and order the US version. I'd have to pay an additional 50 €. If there was somehow no other way to give me an unedited version (which I think is doubtful; no law in my country prohibits depiction of anything this is regarding) then at least give me a head up before I buy it. A wrapper around the packaging saying something like: Warning: European version is censored; would have been enough for me.

They're not going to do that because it would make everyone in those countries find other means to get something they're not supposed to. Your Government is trying to protect you. :p Before I buy a game, I always check the censorship. It's not the developer or publisher that has to tell you, it's up to you to find this stuff out. Live and learn.

Actually, it IS up to them to tell me because there are no laws and regulations against that. I live in a free country. We are more liberal than the US is concerning many issues. When I inquire at a store if a game is going to be censored or not they just laugh at me, because nothing is required to be censored here. It is considered oppressive and my government never does it. Meanwhile, the coverage I was able to follow only mentioned censorship in Australia and Germany. For all intends and purposes, I had no reason to think they would force a censored version down my throat.

Which countries are you talking about? The only European country which required changes was Germany and that only affected Austria. All other version in all of Europe are as Ubisoft intended, as far as I know.
