Sniper Elite V2
Don't buy this if you live in Germany.
Even though Steam is not telling you this (as they should, and usually do) - it's heavily censored, it does not include the X-Ray Kill-Cam. Don't buy it!

Indeed. This game is heavily censored in Germany.

it's not a big problem. i don't play games for violance. but we can't do all achievemnts xD
Nobody really plays for violence, but sometimes it adds a lot to the fun of the experience, in a "lol-omg-did-you-see-that?" kind of way, and it's partially why i bought it; i thought it's a interesting and unique effect, and it'll be a hoot for a day or two, i also really wanted to see if they made Hitler with one bollock or two. xD Well, it's censored, which is kind of♥♥♥♥♥♥

But the point why i've opened this topic is: Steam usually warns us about it if something is a "low violence version", i (and i'm sure many others too) came to rely on this information, but it was withheld. I wrote the support and so far they've made no effort to put a note there, and they also didn't even give me a refund, despite that the game being "not as advertised", so i felt that i should warn others.

Steam does tell you this.

Look on the game's store page, under Key Features, in the section X-Ray Kill Cam: This feature is not available in Germany.

It's improper. Look at the way how Steam informs about censorship on other shop pages - huge massive green bar saying "low violence version", nobody will expect it to be in "fine print". Farkylk also noted that other content is also withheld if you remember.

Why would you buy a game like this while living in germany anyways? The extra mission is to KILL HITLER. GERMANY + KILL HITLER = NO GO. DUH!!!!

If you like to play Coop and are really into those X-Ray bullet cam features, then the whole censorship thing sucks major.
If on the other hand you're a Multiplayer enthousiast, then the whole f....g censorship doesn't affect your gameplay, because who want's bulletcam in Multiplay anyway?!
Now and then it's fun to enable that bulletcam in Single Player, but as soon as you've seen everything it get's boring.
I made 2 short vids with bulletcam, but mostly it's disabled espeacially when you're playing Coop. It sometimes can get pretty annoying for your partner when he's trying to concentrate on his own kills and then suddenly get's interupted by a bulletcam shot from his buddy.

Can people from say Canada send the uncensored version?
Yeah, it's an option, but i can't get it again because i basically already have it, i'm waiting for steam support to remove it and then i'm going to get someone to trade it to me in spring or summer sale.

Ah ok.
I have an extra one just sitting in my inventory.
