Country that banned it: Germany
Although Germany has a strict reputation, a 2003 ruling has prevented the outright banning of any video game in the country. They can have their advertising and in-store displays restricted if the violence is too gruesome though, which often results in more explicit titles simply never being released in the country. That wasn't the case for Wolfenstein though. A ban on including Nazi symbolism outside a historical reference meant that the game's many Nazi swastikas and the Nazi theme music caused it to be declared verboten.
So who remembers Six Days in Fallujah which got canned by games developer Konami after a mass public uproar? How about UK best-seller Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 which sparked controversy over the infamous 'no Russian' level?
Medal of Honour was the latest game to come under intense scrutiny, as Defence Secretary Liam Fox calls for the military first person shooter to be boycotted by UK retailers. Should game developers EA face the wrath of the censors, MoH will join an illustrious list of games to have been removed from the shop shelves.
