Does anyone know what 'changes' the made to this level or know of a site where I can read up on it? Just curious to know what they did differently after the controversy. I googled it but didn't find any specific details.

Sexist portrayal of women so they probably toned it down a little. What exactly, I don't know, if anything at all. All they did say was sorry if they offended anyone.

I thought the Nun would have had more of a role in the game. Apart from this level we barely saw them. Does anyone know if that is down to the controversy?

i think it was just a cool ad that people took waaaay too seriously or something, it's one of the best levels in the game, just shows to go ya how people judge a book by it's cover

That was an odd but fun level--suddenly the game became a Robert Rodriguez movie. But I took the opportunity to pretty much abandon my previous stealthy playstyle and just cause mayhem.

it doesnt show anything about judging a book by its cover.. no one said the level was going play terrible because they were in it. I just think there is no need for it to be ridiculous dominuntrix assassins. For me the level would have been far more enjoyable were it a proper team of practical and cool assassins, a mixture of genders.

Ahhh, so that's why my post was deleted.

I agree they coulda done without the nun hats and just left them as hot chicks in leather, with guns.
But then you lose the whole "Saints" moniker.

What about the Murder Of Crows controversy? That was damn insulting to all crows. And how dare they portray them as yellow and red! And why are birds in the game!? They have as much relevance as a Ice Cream truck in a desert in a video game... ah, nevermind.

there's no need to to be so facetious. i see the point you're trying to get across, and it will be valid as soon as sexual violence and violence towards women stops existing. If people portraying crows as red and yellow somehow resulted in crows becoming victims then yes, it would be irresponsible to portray them as such. Also they are irrelavent, but also faaaaaar less abundant than the combination of overly sexualised women and violence.
