Rockstar/Take 2 has recently hit a snag with the various ratings boards regarding their upcoming game Manhunt 2, sequel to their 2003 game which was surprisingly named Manhunt. The ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board for the one of you that didn't know) has given the game the retail death sentence rating of AO, or Adults Only. I say retail death sentence because that means just about any large retailer either will (or has already) cave under public pressure to not carry and support such sexual/violent/explicit material that many see squarely aimed at teens and children.
How bad is Manhunt 2? It's bad enough that one scene was described as a rape and decapitation of a woman where the man then attempted simulated sexual intercourse with her bloody "neckhole". That's pretty bad on multiple accounts.
