F.E.A.R. 2 Goes Uncensored in Australia

Reversing an earlier ruling, the Australian Classification Review Board has classified the original version of Monolith's spooky shooter sequel F.E.A.R. 2 with an MA 15+ rating, a move that will allow the uncensored game to be sold within the continent. nope

"After considering extensive submissions and demonstrations of game play across all levels, the Review Board concluded that the level of violence in the computer game, whilst strong, could be accommodated within the MA 15+ classification," noted acting review board convenor Trevor Griffin, according to Games On Net.

"We always believed in the merits of the game as an MA 15+ title, and we went in and argued the game on its merits," added publisher Warner Bros. "We're really really pleased that they came up with the decision that they did."

Due out on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin is slated to hit Australia and North America simultaneously come February 10, 2009.
