So why was FarCry banned in Germany? I read the official post here: http://www.farcry.ubi.com/
Wednesday 03.31.2004 Far Cry banned in Germany
In accordance with German law, www.farcry.de and its forums have been pulled down following Far Cry's ban (US/UK version) in Germany. They will remain shut until the German version of Far Cry is released, which has the official youth rating by the German USK.
We apologize to our German community for any inconvenience this may cause and hope things will resume their normal course shortly.
