Well unless you have been living in a cave on Mars for the last month you would know by now that Left 4 Dead 2 had been Refused Classification in Australia. A game is required to have a classifcation to be allowed to be sold. Trouble is the highest rating in Australia is MA15+ and the censors are of the view that this game is beyond that rating. Because there is no R18+ available to them, L4D2 gets the RC tag and therefore not allowed to be sold in AUS.
Australia is the only country in the western world which does not have an R18+ rating.
