In all the videos and screenshots... i see blood when someone dies.... I bought the game... and loving it... but I don't see any blood what so ever...

Has my game been unwillingly sensored? or do i just have to turn it on?

I see blood when soldiers are hit.... :)

even see them dying for a while.. even when the battle is raging on a different point.. no more disappearing corpses.... but death struggles... :)

Yeah, that's what I like so much!! You can find them easily by looking for fallen soldiers which' uniforms are brighter than those really dead.

I do believe the US has reduced blood for age rating purposes..

so i've been ripped off.... damnit!
i want my money back now.

I didn't get the full product!

I call FALSE Advertisement to the publisher.

So does anyone know what i can about this?
There is no button for turning it on or off.

This is a great game.... but I have been ripped off because I got something taken out of my game, thats been Advertisement in all the screenshots and movies i have seen of the game.

wtf? Reduced Rating Purposes? Here's a hint, since you're a foreign company: Ratings don't mean jack schnike here in America. I have never, not once, ever, in my life, seen anyone be denied a video game purchase because of their age. I don't suppose it would be possible to get a blood toggle in a patch?

The age rating scheme in america is taken amazingly serious by the games industry. Some stores wont take certain age rated games. If we want to maximise our instore coverage to give the game the chance to sell and if the official age rating board advise that if we remove the blood quicker so it doesnt pool we will get a lower age rating, then sorry but we will do it.

So how do I go about getting the full game, which I thought i was paying for?
I'd like to replace this for the full verson, instead of the cut up one.

Since it seems Eidos gave FALSE Advertisements of the game.

I feel extreamly ripped off, that other players get something in their game, and I don't get it in mine, and we both paid the same price for it.

You're upset about paying for a game which simply has less blood than what you saw in the previews? You admitted it's a good game...I think you are over-reacting if you will knock it not and think they screwed you over just because you don't get massive pools of blood.

This is a teen rated game and as such follows the strict guidelines for teen ratings. If we'd splashed blood all over the box and said `blood curdling realism` then fair enough. We dont fix the prices, so you may have paid less at your store then in europe.

Am sure someone will mod it back in for free.

Why is blood nessassary? Are Americans so bloodthirsty that they need every game to have gushing geysers of blood? And besides, with the battle raging around you it would be rather difficult to fully apreciate the feature.

No we are not. Other than there being no blood, our version of the game is the exact same. If thrawniejoe is that upset, about there being no blood, and feels cheated in some way, then he should simply return the game, and get his money back.

The game is still pretty damn awesome without the blood, and as you stated it wouldn't be fully appreciated anyhow since most of the time you are to busy commanding troops pay attention to the ambiance.

I'd like to see blood just because there should be blood. People don't get blown up with cannon balls and howitzer shells, shot with Musket Balls, and stuck with Bayonets without a little blood splashed about. Hopefully someone will mod it.

Have you choose High Quality Settings in the Graphic options ?

Well, Im from the UK, we ruled the world before you, I hope you liked how you found it. We expanded our empire through trade, and killed where we felt it was appropriate, before that, like you, we slaughtered thousands in gods name, although in OUR defence, it was in the middle ages, and we diddnt know any better.
In recent times we have also been involved in an illegal war in which thousands of innocent civilians were needlessly killed in their own homes, schools, and hospitals.

Here's a link for you to discuss this in: www.forumplanet.com/planetbattlefield they'd love another Liberal biased fool to join in the mindless torrent of uneducated crap. Put it there or put in it the back of your mind. This is discussing Imperial Glory and we don't want to know about it. You don't like what happened in Iraq? Illegal war? Didn't know better in the middle ages? Geneva convention? United Nations? I'm sure the now all dead Aboriginals in Tasmania would like to hear of illegal wars. You knew better then.

Just leave this uneducated political discussion quiet, because primarily we don't want it, secondarily you know not of which you speak.

im actually gonna stop buying US Games... buying from the UK pays off more...

I had the same problem with a game called Scared, Thuogh blood was a bigger deal in that game... they had some cool ass blood and guts effects, the US version had it taken it out.... after beating a monster to death with an axe.... and you dont' see blood, just the monster fall down.... it feels like something is missing.

I know alot about the weapons used in this time period... so when I see my 12 pounders firing.... and they hit a bunch of troops and all you see is them fall down... It makes me wonder... WTF is giong on.

Though blood is just eye candy.... its something that shouldn't be left out in games like these.

Its times like this I wish i lived in the UK.

For those in the US wanting to know what the blood looks like in-game here are a couple of examples. On the second one you can just about make out the blood splashes on the ground from the artillery shell landing amongst the militia recruits.

a)I am from Greece
WE RULED IN THE WORLD BEFORE YOU EVER EXIST AS A NATION and call yourself later England and later UK

We Existed before the creation of the Roman Empire as a Nation (Before Middle Ages) and we still exist today
while you were just a bunch of villagges and barbarian communities

We created Democracy, Architecture,Mathematics, Culture, diplomacy, and so many other things while you hanged into trees and lived in caves at that times

Read some History before you talk...
Do you have a History lesson in your schools i wonder

We killed in our 12 Gods names but for our Defence from Barbarians(from East mostly)
We were never a true Aggressive nation wanting to conquer the World through war

b)Are you talking about Iraq??
Well it's your fault that you supported USA G.Bush in his "Crusade"
If you were smart enough you would never did that

From the other hand we did not support BUSH and his Crusade against Iraq
and we will never support false crusades

Owerr! talk about blowing your own trumpet.
Greece only ruled the world for a short time while the British went on holiday. :)

You will find that 89% of the British public did not want to support America in it's quest for oil. We cannot be held responsible for a useless and extremely stupid government.
We have no real choice in our elections as all the party’s standing are American puppets, I suppose you could say we have been invaded by America by peaceful annexing. :)

Hmmm... I disagree with you that America is on a bad streak but I guess it's all in the eyes of the beholder. Anyway, where did modern day politics find it's way into a discussion about a video game. You know, we get enough of that nonsense in everyday life. This is one place that we should be able to forget all that nonsense..
