Saints Row 4 has been refused classification by the Australian Ratings Board again. Before, the board had to the violence in the game, in a "low violence" version.
Now, the board is concerned with drugs being tied to positive achievements, incentives and rewards.
The board announced, “A three-member panel of the Classification Review Board has unanimously determined that the computer game Saints Row IV is classified Refused Classification. In the Review Board’s opinion, Saints Row IV could not be accommodated within the R 18+ classification as drug use related to incentives and rewards is not permitted.” Being refused classification means the game can't even be demonstrated in Australia.
Obviously, adults aren't allowed to make their own judgments in Australia.
