MTV's Stephen Totilo writes: "The cut I'm referring to isn't the removal of a scene of genital mutilation to get the game its M-rating. Nor is it the oft-cited blurring of the game's execution scenes. It's the scoring system."
"It's the system that tallied a better number for me if I had behaved more brutally, displaying the figures on a screen that appeared between each level of the game.
It's a system that was in the first M-rated Manhunt but is absent from the M-rated version of the sequel.
Let's be clear: it's the system that incentivized increased virtual brutality and was cut from the version that was too hot for retail."
