StarCraft II

Starcraft II, which has to count as the most eagerly awaited game in South Korea, has been rated "Adults Only" there by the Korea's Games Rating Board. Here in the U.S., the game is rated T for Teen.

Blizzard could still file an objection to the rating within the next 30 days, but has yet to say whether it will or not. "We have nothing to say at this point. We are discussing our official position on the matter as well as what would be the right reaction,'' a representative for Blizzard in Korea told The Korea Times.

"Considering that the RC version of the game is closer to what will be sold on the shelves compared to the beta versions, we looked more carefully at the content,'' said an official from the Games Rating Board. "However, this rating is not final, as Blizzard will get the chance to object to it."

Korea has been in the gaming news recently for creating mandatory cut-off times for users of some multiplayer games. When taken together, the two developments could indicate a comprehensive strategy on the part of the Korean government toward games.
