Duke Nukem Hits Oz Uncut

Duke Nukem Forever somehow manages to get an MA15+ rating in Australia , despite having no edits made to pass the notoriously restrictive Australian Classification Board. This may come as a surprise to many, considering the ACB's past with games like Left 4 Dead 2 and Fallout 3. The MA15+ rating is roughly equivalent to the M rating in the US, the 18+ PEGI rating, and the 18 rating by the BBFC. This avoids the R18+ rating, which means that the game would not be carried by a large majority of Australian retailers, and its sale must be restricted to all those below 18.
