Rockstar will appeal the Manhunt 2 ban

By now everybody in the world has probably heard about the Manhunt 2 ban. The BBFC has refused to rate it in the UK and the game's been given an Adults Only rating in the US, meaning Sony and Nintendo won't go anywhere near it.

Of its decision the BBFC said, "Manhunt 2 is distinguishable from recent high-end video games by its unremitting bleakness and callousness of tone in an overall game context which constantly encourages visceral killing with exceptionally little alleviation or distancing." Basically you don't do anything apart from killing people all the time.

Freedom of expression will prevail!!!!!

Someone who dosen't like big brother government doing the Riverdance on his rights. Well played sir. Well played indeed. This matter is much more important than most people think it is. This is the first in many battles to have total creative freedom in the industry. Wether you like the game or not is mute, It is about the big picture. By the way I am #40 on the list.

And Remember, Remember the 5 of Novemeber ;)

Before I heard of the ban, I didn't care about it because I don't really like the game. Now I want to buy it to show support for Rockstar and anti-censorship. As long as it comes out un-censored, I want this game. Game sounds gross, but don't ban the game or refuse to rate it. If it's disgustingly gross, I can decide if I want it or not.

True. I hope we get to full game instead of a butchered and edited one.

To be honest i really don't know how much i'll want to play this game, maybe rent it for a day. But this game sounds truly grotesque. They still have no right to stop the game from coming out in original form.

one question, why dont many shops sell AO games? shouldnt people be complaining a bit more to the shops?
sorry we dont have AO games here in uk, so i dont know much about it.

clownfacemcgee4194d ago

You don't have AO ratings because you have a different ratings board for video games. Your rating system refused to even rate the game. Your government and the Irish government banned the game. The Australian government will probably ban it, and the German government wouldn't surprise me if they did. So don't lecture us about freedom of speech.

(sorry if that was a tad bit harsh)

sandip7874193d ago

what the hell are you talking about? im asking why shops dont sell AO games, and that we dont have AO in the uk, so i dont know much about it. dude your either misunderstanding or your just acting stupid.

I've been to the BBFC and its awesome there, I reckon they will allow Manhunt 2 to be sold in the UK but I also reckon they will delay the release of Manhunt 2.
