Australian Christian Lobby Calls Sniper Elite V2 ‘Sick’

Sniper Elite V2 Australia Ratings This story in the Australian newspaper The Sun Herald about Sniper Elite V2 being ‘sick’ is quite amusing, though it probably doesn’t help what Jason Kingsley, the CEO of Rebellion, adds to the discussion about it.

But let’s be clear about who is calling this sniper game set during World War II “sick” – it’s the Australian Christian Lobby, and not the newspaper. Jim Wallace, managing director of the Australian Christian Lobby says the game should have been refused classification in the country. Keep in mind that this is the same group that has helped stall the R18+ classification in Australia for quite some time.

It’s sick … we should be doing everything we can to ensure that the level of explicit violence isn’t allowed to increase at a time when games are becoming more sophisticated, interactive and real,” Wallace told the publication.

Jason Kingsley didn’t exactly help matter by saying that the way you experience the shots you fire in the game is pretty gruesome:

In SEv2 you get to see exactly what a bullet does to the human body and – to be frank – it’s pretty horrific,” he said.

There’s also some hubbub over downloadable content that lets you kill Hitler, though I don’t know why anyone would be against that. It’s just a game, after all, and if anyone deserves to be a target of violence it’s the guy that was at the top of the Nazi party.

Sniper Elite V2 is set for a release on May 1 here in the United States. It is rated “M” for “mature” by the ESRB for obvious reasons.

    Hmm seems like you have this all planned out. I might make a few notes:(1) rnrdgaieg skill books, you only get 4 skill books per skill (with the exception of melee and science skill, where you get 5). So plan accordingly with comprehension, you can get 4 skill points each book (only put 84 max in most skills and 80 max in melee and science).(2) Another thing, you use 2 intense trainings (1 on intelligence and 1 on endurance) I say lower your endurance by 1 and raise your intelligence by 1 (then do intense training on endurance 2x), that way you won’t be missing out on any skill points you will lose from the levels it took you to get from intelligence 6 to 8. I believe endurance is retroactive, so when you pop the extra point in it via intense training, you’ll get all the HP advantages you would had you started off with more endurance, so this is your best bet. I was able to get to the New Vegas medical place at level 1, so you can get your intelligence implant right away and keep from losing valuable skill points (even if it is 4 or 5 thats a lot).personal experience.
