Have a look at the censored German version of Wolfenstein: The New Order

Wolfenstein: The New Order Screenshot - 1164516

How do you slip a game that is fundamentally about killing Nazis—set in an alternate post-war world in which Nazis are the reigning power—under the stringent anti-Nazi laws of Germany? Censor away!

This new video from Eurogamer shows just how thoroughly MachineGames had to revise the game in order for it to pass German restrictions. Every last Swastika has been plucked from the game, often swapped for a Wolfenstein logo or fictitious emblem but occasionally removed outright. In addition, Nazis themselves are referred to only as “the Regime” in the German version in both dialogue and in-game text. And of course, hearty "Heil Hitler!"s are no longer part of the game. 

Fortunately, no gameplay mechanics were affected by the censoring, so German players will still be shotgunning Nazis with the best of 'em.
