Trivia

German version

In the German version nearly all blood effects, the flash of lights when hurting enemies, decapitations, and enemies burning to death when killed with fire were removed. Nearly all enemies disappear instantly after death - and the corpses of the few which don't (in addition to corpses which belong to the level design) can't be interacted with. This also means that an enemy type is missing: in the original version necromancers can bring corpses back to life. Another change relates to two spells: after using telekinesis on an enemy it is not possible to shove him and frozen enemies can't be killed. A detailed list of changes can be found on schnittberichte.com (German).

Violence

In comparison to the PC version, there are some differences regarding violence: when hurting an enemy a flash of light covers up the blood, all cut off limbs except heads were removed and the corpses of burned enemies don't have a special texture.
