Is the new Twisted Metal as controversial, violent and horrific as we've been lead to believe? Possibly - but it's not too much for Australian gamers, with the local Classification Board granting the game an MA15+ rating, making it suitable for gamers 15 years and over.
Citing "Strong violence and horror themes," the updated database also includes the inevitable warning that "gaming experience may change online".
Another interesting thing to note in that entry: Twisted Metal has been classified as a "Multi Platform" computer game - unusual, for a game that's been promoted from the start as a PS3 exclusive!
Twisted Metal is due out internationally on February 14th, making a perfect gift for the one you love.
