Command and Conquer: Red Alert is a real time strategy game that was developed by Westwood Studios, and published by Virgin Interactive. The game was released on October 31, 1996. Due to the German government's regulations, a number of scenes were censored for the German release. As a result, soldiers were replaced by robots, violent cutscenes were modified or replaced, and a scene in the intro showing Hitler before his rise to power was cut.

German Censorship[]

  • Every human in the gameplay was changed to a robot/cyborg.
  • Blood was recolored to black in order to make it look like oil.
  • Any human death cries were replaced with a noise of a robot shutting down.
  • The noise caused by a tank running over a soldier was replaced with the sound of a crunch.
  • The song "Hell March" was cut.
  • The intro was shortened. As a result you can no longer able see a flashback that shows Hitler shaking hands with Einstein.
  • The scene that shows Tanya Adams getting hit in the face was cut.
  • The scene that shows the prison interrogator knocking Tanya Adams unconscious was cut.
  • The scene that shows a soldier frozen to death in the snow was replaced with a cutscene showing a Soviet logo.
  • The scene that shows Tanya Adams's grave was replaced by a video that shows Europe becoming part of the USSR.
  • The scene that shows Paris getting hit by a nuclear bomb was modified for the German release. In the German version the voices before the nuclear impact, and the screams after the nuclear impact were removed.
  • The scene that shows two soldiers barely making it out of their defensive position before they're overrun by enemy tanks was replaced with a video that showed tanks crossing the river and destroying an enemy base.
