    Relax. and dont worry, I now. I was just trying to state reasons as to why such a thing couldn't happen without major consequences. (And as much as i hate to say it, it probably will happen one day and i dread to imagine how that will go down:wacko:)

    Muslims are very iffy about drawings is my main point.

    You know, taken out of the context of gaming entirely, this would read as some horrific affront on all condensation as a result of a holy war of ultimate proportions to rival the crusades.

    The game looks kinda tame... until the MFing Jesus breaks the cross and started to use parts of it to hit his opponents. Crazy shit, developers are clearly taking some shady pills and there's a need to protect people from drugs.
    Global ban, now!

    I'm sorry but what? The God depicted in SMT4 Final is without a doubt the Christian/Hebrew God.

    There're also no reliable drawings of Jesus either, or just a reliable proof that he ever existed to begin with.
    Look at Odin in this game. His helmet has horns, the idea that viking and there gods used horns at there helmets is a idea from Richard Wagner. There is no source that says Odin would have a helmet with horns.
    I guess the look of all character in this game is just based on the phantasy of artists and technically we have a kind of common sense how Muhammad looks like, thanks to the comics a couple of years ago ;)
    Which means a DLC would be possible, but I doub they make it happend.

    Or maybe, just maybe, gods are made up characters so they can look like anything, because they never really existed....

    I marked the word "look" bold to avoid a flame war from people that may skip that word while reading ;)

    Wow... It's a pretty overreaction. why didn't they issue a local ban on the game in the first place? :unsure:

    As for the local ban: i don't see a problem with it. It's not like this is the Pinnacle of what games have to offer. And to be honest: i think this whole controversy more than makes up for lost sales in pr, so i doubt the devs are shedding tears over this.

    They really should add an option to play as yourself, and add Chuck Norris.

    Don't forge the balancing between the characters. It's a fighting game ;)
    Well, maybe he could be added as god mode *scnr*

    Yea, that would be unfair to the gods to add Chuck Norris.

    We could balance that by letting the gods summon Bruce Lee.

    That's all well and good until you (read: developers) find a niche market of white supremists that are willing to support your "creative" efforts

    but that's exactly my point:
    if most like it, then why hinder them?

    No this is actually blasphemous, whereas that was more grey area, at least I would say(I'm sure kids play games in Church all the time, I know I used to, I think it was more the idea that he was doing it on purpose, and and about past, anti-Christian comments he made). I wouldn't play this game, makes me sad it exist.
