MATERIAL CONSIDERED: In classifying this thành quả regard was had lớn the following: (i) The Application YES (ii) A written synopsis of the cống phẩm YES (iii) The Item YES (iv) Other NO

DECISION (1) Classification: MA 15+(2) Consumer Advice: Svào violence(3) Key:

SYNOPSIS: This zombie style first person shooter game pits the player, a "survivor" and one of a team of five sầu against numerous "infected" beings. The player can also assume the perspective of one of five sầu "Boss" infected characters.

REASONS FOR THE DECISION;

In making this decision, the Classification Board has applied the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) Act 1995 (the Classification Act), including the matters phối out in sections 9A và 11 of the Classification Act, the National Classification Code (the Code) and the Guidelines for the Classification of Films and Computer Games 2005 (the Guidelines).

In the Board's view this computer game warrants an MA 15+ classification as, in accordance with Item 2 of the Computer Games Table of the National Classification Code, it is unsuitable for viewing or playing by persons under 15.

Pursuant lớn the Guidelines for the Classification of Films and Computer Games, this computer game is classified MA 15+ as the impact of the classifiable elements is strong. Material classified MA 15+ is considered unsuitable for persons under 15 years of age. It is a legally restricted category.

The classifiable element is violence that is svào in playing impact.

VIOLENCE

The game contains violence that is strong in impact và justified by context.

The violence can be by way of shooting, being hit with a variety of missiles, immolation, or in hvà khổng lồ hvà combat. The violence is accompanied by copious blood spray, blood pooling & occasional dismemberment and atomising of victims. The wound & site of dismemberment contains little detail other than the blood depictions & there is no detail of viscera, bone & cleft marks associated with the violence. The soundtraông chồng contains sound effects associated with violence including moderate coarse language, pleas of victims & the guttural moans & roars of the creatures. The scenario is typical of this genre & the storyline is fanciful, acting lớn lower impact.

A minority of the Board is of the opinion that the continual và unremitting acts of violence with substantial blood detail is high in impact. In the absence of a classification at the Rngười lớn màn chơi for computer games, this game in the minority view is therefore assessed at RC in accordance with item 1(d) of the computer games table of the National Classification Code.

DECISION

The game contains violence that is high in impact và is therefore unsuitable for persons aged under 18 years khổng lồ play.

The game contains realistic, frenetic & unrelenting violence which is inflicted upon "the Infected" who are living humans infected with a rabies-lượt thích virus that causes them to lớn act violently.

However, it is the use of the "melee" weapons such as the crowbar, axe cộ, chainsaw and Samurai sword which inflict the most damage.

APPLICANT Electronic Arts Pty LtdINTERESTEDPARTIES None, but one letter from a member of the public was received và noted.

BUSINESS To Review the Classification Board's decision to lớn classify the computer game Left 4 Dead 2 RC (Refused Classification).

DECISION AND REASONS FOR DECISION

1. DecisionThe Classification review Board (the đánh giá Board) classified the computer game RC.

2. Legislative provisions

The Classification (Publications, Film và Computer Games) Act 1995 (the Classification Act) governs the classification of computer games and the Reviews of classification decisions. Section 9 provides that computer games are to be classified in accordance with the National Classification Code (the Code) and the Guidelines for the Classification of Films và Computer Games (the Guidelines)

Relevantly, the Code, under the heading 'Computer Games', provides that computer games that:

(a) depict, express or otherwise khuyễn mãi giảm giá with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offkết thúc against the standards of morality, decency và propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults khổng lồ the extent that they should not be classified; or

(b) describe or depict in a way that is likely to lớn cause offence lớn a reasonable adult, a person who is, or appears lớn be, a child under 18 (whether the person is engaged in sexual activity or not); or

(c) promote, incite or instruct in matters of crime or violence; or

(d) are unsuitable for a minor to see or play

are lớn be classified RC.

The Code also provides that:

Computer games (except RC computer games) that depict, express or otherwise giảm giá khuyến mãi with sex, violence or coarse language in such a manner as to be unsuitable for viewing or playing by persons under 15

are khổng lồ be classified MA 15+(Mature Accompanied).

Section 11 of the Classification Act requires that the matters lớn be taken into lớn trương mục in making a decision on the classification of a computer game include:

(a) the standards of morality, decency & propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults; and(b) the literary, artistic or educational merit (if any) of the computer game; and(c) the general character of the computer game, including whether it is of a medical, legal or scientific character; and(d) the persons or class of persons lớn or amongst whom it is published or is intended or likely khổng lồ be published.Three essential principles underlie the use of the Guidelines, determined undersection 12 of the Classification Act:

* the importance of context* the assessment of impact, and* the six classifiable elements - themes, violence, sex, language, drug use và nudity.

3. Procedure

A three thành viên panel of the Review Board met on 22 October 2009 in response khổng lồ the receipt of an application from the original applicant on 23 September 2009 lớn Đánh Giá the RC classification of the computer game, determined by the Classification Board. Those three members had previously determined that the application was a valid application.

The Review Board was assured that the computer game, the subject of the reviews application, was the same game as had been classified by the Classification Board.

The Applicant provided a written submission và recorded gameplay of the computer game before the hearing. The Review Board viewed the recorded gameplay & a demonstration of the game on 22 October 2009.

The nhận xét board heard an oral submission from Mr Paul Hellmrich representing the Applicant and he demonstrated the game.

The Đánh Giá Board then considered the matter.

4. Evidence & other material taken into lớn tài khoản

In reaching its decision the nhận xét Board had regard to lớn the following:

(i) The application for review(ii) Electronic Arts' written & oral submissions(iii) the computer game, Left 4 Dead 2(iv) the relevant provisions in the Classification Act, the Code and the Guidelines, and(v) the Classification Board's report.

5. Synopsis

A 1st person action/shooting game where a person can play as one of four human characters through a chiến dịch khổng lồ reach a safe-house after fighting through hordes of infected humans, or can play as an infected human with the aim of trying to prsự kiện the human survivors reaching the safe-house.

The game also has several other multiplayer modes. In addition, it should be noted that Mr Hellmrich indicated that the computer game was intended khổng lồ be played on-line but that that could not be demonstrated because the servers were not yet live.

6. Findings on material questions of fact

The nhận xét Board found that the computer game contains aspects or scenes of importance under various classifiable elements:

(a) Themes -Mr Hellmrich submitted that the game 'was all about self-preservation & working as a team'. The Review Board does not contradict that submission & concludes that the classifiable element of 'Themes' could be accommodated in a classification lower than RC.

(b) Violence -Weapons used in the computer game included a pistol, axe cộ, shotgun, chainsaw, rifle, machinegun, acid/bile, cricket bat, saucepan và Molotov cocktail.

The game contains humans, 'zombies' and grotesque fictional 'infected' characters.

Mr Hellmrich made a submission in which he analysed the provisions of the National Classification Code as it describes the circumstances in which a computer game would be classified RC. That submission, in essence, relied very much on his assertions that:

- the game includes zombies who were not and never had been human;

- zombies were fictional characters và that zombie killing was an ancillary component khổng lồ the central objective of the game being played on-line và multiplayer;

- 15 year olds would know that the zombies were fictional characters và could distinguish them from humans và that therefore lessened the impact, (but in any sự kiện it was not unlawful to lớn kill zombies which meant that no crime had been committed); &

- there was no moral issue involved in killing fictional characters.

Mr Hellmrich also submitted that all figures (apart from the four humans) were stylized & not real, và that this lessened the impact.

Mr Hellmrich submitted that 'the game is a high MA15+ but due khổng lồ the unrealistic nature of the violence still feel that this game should be within the MA15+ band'.

The following scenes and acts (not an exhaustive sầu list) were noted by the review Board:

* in the early stages, a body toàn thân on the ground was shot at repeatedly, a body toàn thân disintegrated leaving a head on the ground with copious amounts of blood;

* a fire left a visibly charred body;

* a body toàn thân was lying face down on a bathroom floor with a trail of blood - screaming & moaning accentuated the impact;

* copious blood including repeated instances of blood splatter on camera lens;

* in a store with buses và trucks, blood splatters, a body on the ground having been dragged leaving a trail of blood;

* a person hanging by fingertips from a beam with fingers being stamped on, another person with arm shot off;

* swords used to behead & disthành viên with blood everywhere;

* in a swamp, with an aircraft crashed, persons being attacked, as they run towards camera some are shot with blood everywhere & fleeting glimpses of stomach entrails spilling out;

* a group between several buses shot at, copious blood including on camera lens, and several heads blown off;

* chainsaws used on attackers, heads cut off và lots of blood; and

* exclamations & coarse language from time to time accentuating the impact of acts of violence.

The review Board concludes that the cấp độ of violence is high in impact, prolonged, repeated frequently and realistic in the context of the game.

It is also of the view that there is insufficient delineation between the depiction of the general zombie figures and the human figures as opposed to lớn the clearly fictional 'infected' characters. This means that the objects of the violence could not easily be distinguished as human or unreal or fictional creatures. However, the Review Board is of the view that the question whether the objects of the violence were fictional or real, & whether a 15 year old could discern the difference, is largely irrelevant where the game displays the màn chơi of realism this one does.

(c) Language -There are several instances of coarse language but it is infrequent & can be accommodated in a classification lower than RC.

(d) Sex -There is no sex in the computer game.

(e)Drug Use -There is no drug use in the game.

(f) Nudity -There is no nudity in the game.

7. Reasons for the decision

The nhận xét Board is of the view that the violence in the computer game is the principal classifiable element upon which the reviews Board should make và has made its decision.

The Đánh Giá Board is unanimous in its view that the game is not suitable for playing by minors because of the level of violence and its high impact.

To be classified MA 15+ as sought by the Applicant, the Guidelines will allow violence justified by context but with an impact no higher than svào. Having regard to lớn those Guidelines & the constant and recurring acts of violence in the computer game, the Đánh Giá Board unanimously determines that the computer game cannot be classified MA 15+ and falls into lớn the RC classification for computer games.

8. Summary

The reviews Board determined that the computer game Left 4 Dead2 is classified RC as a game where the impact of the violence is high and, therefore, not suitable for playing by minors.

Uncut vs. Censored Version

The censored MA15+ version of LEFT 4 DEAD 2 was released in late October 2009, và it did not take long for the games community khổng lồ identify the missing footage.

The Australian Version Threadforums.steampowered.com, October 28, 2009

So you may think the only nội dung removed was the visual content you are WRONG!

Visual Content Removed: Blood Spatter (greatly minimised) Bodies Disappear NO GORE AT ALL

Now for something that CHANGES GAMEPLAY: Uncommon Infected (UCI) completely removed (Riot Cop i.e Bulletproof Zombie) If Someone with an uncut version joins a game with Australians with the cut version Uncommon Infected will NOT spawn

Now lets see what conflicts here:

Visual effects: Bodies Disappear: Now this DID NOT happen in Left 4 Dead 1 and it gained the MA15+ Rating why the hell was this removed? & why are prop corpses present if corpses disappear Gore và Blood: This has been drastically tuned down compared lớn Left 4 Dead 1(MA15+) and even removed decapitation which was present in Left 4 Dead 1.

Gameplay: UCI's (UnComtháng Infected) were removed which is a new key gameplay mechanic which allows L4D2 khổng lồ be just that more Different lớn L4D1 The Riot Cop will not Spawn on Australian Cut versions why is this? Shooting Cops is not allowed? Lets see what games bởi vì this that are classified: CS 1.6 CSS Prototype Resident Evils GTA Series Give me a valid reason the Riot Cop was removed ALSO the fact they were Security & not the law enforcement conflicts the reason for removal.

LEFT 4 DEAD 2 seized by the Australian Customs Service

Thanks lớn Jason for this rundown of the LEFT FOR DEAD 2 customs confiscations.

I was intending lớn import a copy of LEFT FOR DEAD 2 from the UK và did a search lớn see how other people had done it. The vast majority seem to have got it through with no problems, but I was shocked to find at least four cases of customs confiscating the game. I decided against importing a copy as I am an unlucky person, and am sure I would have sầu been in the 1% that lost the game, and not the 99% who get it through.

Here are the four cases that I found mentioned on the net.

CASE #1 This came from the econgười chơi site in November 2009

A copy coming from 365games.com was taken

CASE 2 This came from the colonyofgamers site in November 2009

A guy in WA had an uncut copy taken.

CASE #3This came from the Whirpool forums in December 2009.

An uncut UK copy was taken in late 2009.

He quotes the customs letter as saying.

"An Officer from Australian Customs and Border Protection Service suspects on reasonable grounds that the goods are forfeited lớn the Crown as Prohibited Imports."

The guy wrote to lớn customs & got this reply

Thankyou for your tin nhắn và explanation of the circumstances of the purchase of the goods. This particular version of the game Left 4 Dead 2 has been refused classification by the Classification Board và is therefore considered a Prohibited Import lớn nước Australia. An approved version of the game is available for sale in Australia but my understanding is that it is quite expensive sầu. We have had many other importers caught out with this.

Any items considered lớn be prohibited imports under Regulation 4A of the Prohibited Import Regulations are also Prohibited Exports và cannot be returned overseas. I recommend that you contact the supplier and advise them of this situation. They may provide a refund. Most suppliers should be aware that there are issues with sending computer games to lớn nước Australia as the only ones approved for import are ones that are suitable for children under 18 lớn view. This is quite different to lớn other countries.

Alternatively, if you paid via paypal you may be able khổng lồ obtain a refund through them.

CASE #4 This came from the ABC'S Good Game forums in April 2010.

A guy lost an uncut when ordered from e-bay UK.

He quotes the customs letter as saying.

"These goods are classified as 'objectionable goods' as they are likely lớn cause offence to a reasonable adult and as such should not be imported".

LEFT 4 DEAD 1 (MA15+) vs. LEFT DEAD 2 (RC)

Here is Bjorn's comparison between the Classification Board reports for LEFT 4 DEAD 1 và 2

Point 1

Left 4 Dead:“The wound and site of dismemberment contains little detail other than the blood depictions, and there is no detail of viscera, bone and cleft marks associated with the violence.”

Left 4 Dead 2:“These cthua thảm in attacks cause copious amounts of blood spray and splatter, decapitations và limb dismemberment as well as locational damage where liên hệ is made to lớn the enemy which may reveal skeletal bits & gore.

Bjorn: The improved damage Mã Sản Phẩm appears khổng lồ be the key factor in the Board’s decision. The Board specifically noted the laông chồng of detail in wounds và sites of dismemberment in Left 4 Dead, so the new, more detailed melee damage Mã Sản Phẩm attracted particular attention and specific mention in the decision report for the sequel.

Point 2

Left 4 Dead:“The scenario is typical of this genre and the storyline is fanciful, acting lớn lower impact.”

Left 4 Dead 2:“The interactive nature of the game increases the overall impact of the frequent and intense depictions of violence. This coupled with the graphic depictions of blood and gore combine khổng lồ create a playing impact which is high.”

Bjorn: Context và interactivity are dealt with inconsistently by the Board, as these elements would seem to have changed little from the original game, yet are assessed quite differently. Interactivity is a strong contextual factor in game classification, however when read one after the other, it is hard lớn underst& how it is a key factor in Left 4 Dead 2 & not the original. This is yet another example of the inconsistency with which the Classification Board applies the Classification Guidelines.

Point 3

Left 4 Dead:A minority of the Board is of the opinion that the continual và unremitting acts of violence with substantial blood detail is high in impact .

Left 4 Dead 2:A minority of the Board is of the opinion that the violence is svào in playing impact và therefore warrants an MA 15+ classification.

Bjorn: Both games were split decisions for the Board. The Board has 5 new members since Left 4 Dead was classified, although of course there is no way of knowing which members classified either game.

Left 4 Dead 2 has been the subject of controversy for a reason other than classification in Australia recently. Fans believed it khổng lồ be no more than an expansion for the original game, for which they would be unfairly charged, rather than receiving it as a free update to lớn the original game. From this background, it is interesting lớn compare Reviews Board decisions for these two very similar games, and discover the very fine line that separates the game able lớn be sold to lớn 15 year olds, and the one deemed unable khổng lồ be legally sold khổng lồ anyone at all in nước Australia.

LEFT 4 DEAD 2 in Senate Estimates

During the February 2010 Senate Estimates hearings, the subject of LEFT 4 DEAD 2 was touched on when Senator Guy Barnett questioned if this was the type of game that would receive sầu an Rcấm trẻ em.

The speakers were:

Senator Guy Barnett Liberal Senator for Tasmania Senator the Hon Penny Wong Labor Senator for South Australia

Attorney-General’s DepartmentManagement & AccountabilityMr Roger Wilkins AO, Secretary

Classification BoardMr Donald McDonald AC, Director

Senator BARNETT —I am advised that in the US the unmodified version of the game Left 4 Dead 2 was given a ‘mature’ rating—so, suitable for persons aged 17 và older—but was classified ‘refused classification’ in nước Australia. ‘Mature’ games in the US may contain intense violence, blood và gore, sexual content and svào language. What is the minister’s intent in wanting lớn open the possibility of these extremely violent và sexually explicit interactive sầu games being made available in Australia? That is a question for the minister. I am happy for you lớn take it on notice, Minister.

Mr Wilkins —That is one for the Classification Board.

Senator BARNETT —I am happy for the board khổng lồ respond.

Mr D McDonald —Senator, I can give sầu you the history of the classification of that game in Australia—this is Left 4 Dead 2. On 15 September 2009, the Classification Board classified an original, unedited version of Left 4 Dead 2 as RC—that is to say it was refused classification. In the board’s view, the game was unsuitable for a minor & contained violence that was more than strong in impact. The interactive sầu nature of the game increased the overall impact of the frequent & intense depictions of violence. This, coupled with the graphic depictions of blood and gore, combined to lớn create a playing impact that was considered high. The distributor applied for a đánh giá of this decision &, on 22 October 2009, the Classification đánh giá Board met và also classified the game ‘RC’—in other words, they refused classification. A modified version of the game was later submitted lớn the Classification Board và was classified MA15+, with consumer advice of ‘strong, bloody violence’.

Senator BARNETT —All right. Thank you for that. Did the minister want lớn respond lớn that question as to why the minister or the government would want to lớn make such a đoạn Clip game legal?

Senator Wong—I am not sure I have got any instructions or advice from the minister about the view on that specific game. I would have to lớn take that on notice. I am not sure I can agree with the assertion you have sầu just made either.

Senator BARNETT —I am happy for you lớn take it on notice.

Mr Wilkins —Can I just phản hồi on that, Senator. The Classification Board classifies according to the existing law. The discussion paper is out there precisely because the government is trying to elicit what the public view is và it will then make some policy decisions on the basis of that. So that is the position. The government has not got a concluded view on this issue.
