In fact, very strange, since she is the power source of Silent Hill in that moment, and the reason everything is happening (one could say that she is the devil himself - and the way Samael breaks free of her in the final moments of the game... seems like "violation" to me).
You call it necessary censorship. I call it hypocritical bullshit. You censor "demon-like kids", but the whole game itself is about violence in a dark-changed world. So, they should have censored the whole game, like australians like to do...
Talking about it, what happened to GameSpot "Game of the Year" presentation? Man, this year's edition is a total crap... No "dubious honors", no "Most violent game pass to aussie boards"...
