God of War is an American hack and slash video game that was developed by SCE Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. The game was released for the PlayStation 2 on March 22, 2005. Due to rating issues regarding violence in video games, the German release had to be censored. As a result violence was toned down.

Censorship[]

German/EU censorship[]

  • The game was originally refused a rating, and could not be released in Germany as a result. A censored version was later rated and released in Germany. The EU version of the game is also censored like the German version.
  • The puzzle that involves a human sacrifice was modified for the German release. In the German version, the human was changed to a monster being sacrificed.
  • Any scene that shows a human character in a metal cage was modified for the German release. In the German version they were changed to monsters.
  • The dialogue between Kratos and the human soldier trapped in the metal cage was modified for the German release. In the German version the human is now a monster, and the dialogue was muted.
  • The note that says "I know I am weak but I can not be a part of this. I have failed Athens." it was changed to "What the Gods asks me I can not do, even for Pandora's box. They are monsters now, and they were once men."

Japanese censorship[]

  • You can no longer defeat fleeing civilians.
  • Limbs can no longer be cut off.
  • Any scene that shows topless female characters was modified for the Japanese release. In the Japanese version, the characters are fully clothed.
  • The scene that shows a human character in a metal cage was modified for the Japanese release. In the Japanese version a monster was in the cage.
