North American censorship[]

(Applies to Dreamcast, Playstation and the PC)

  • The zombie head kicking and head crushing are censored in the North American version.

Japanese censorship[]


  • The death scene where the character gets decapitated by a Hunter was censored. His/Her head does not get cut off anymore.

European censorship[]

  • The introduction cutscene for the Hunter enemy is censored in both PlayStation and PC (decapitation of a zombie).

German censorship[]

  • All of the European censorship is included in the German release of the game. It is further censored by eliminating gore, recoloring of blood to gray, and enemies vanishing when killed. Because of these modifications, the Mercenaries minigame is made unintentionally more difficult.

International censorship[]


  • The introduction cutscene for the Hunter enemy is censored in every Windows version.

Where to find it uncensored[]

There is no completely uncensored PlayStation release. The North American GameCube release (available since January 15, 2003) is uncensored.
