There are a number of changes to the German version:
- All blood and gore effects were removed. The comic cutscenes and one in-game cutscene after the prologue are not effected.
- Almost all corpses which are part of the level design were removed. The ragdoll effects for them were also removed.
- Almost all killed enemies disappear instantly. Because of this the necromancy skill is rendered useless.
- The efficacy of the kick attack was greatly reduced
- The bayonets and shovel disappear after hitting an enemy and can't be picked up again
- Various death animations were removed
- Because of the missing possibility to cut off limbs, the second attack phase of two enemies were removed.
- The flame thrower weapon was removed.
- The combo displays on screen were removed.
