Manhunt 2 Rejected in UK by BBFC

The BBFC has rejected the video game Manhunt 2. This means that it cannot be legally supplied anywhere in the UK. The game was submitted in both a PS2 and a Nintendo Wii version. The decision was taken by the Director and the Presidential Team of Sir Quentin Thomas, Lord Taylor of Warwick and Janet Lewis-Jones.

Now let a Brit try and tell me that their government is not a socialist government...

Here in America if Hillary Clinton had her way we would not be playing anything but Pac-Man. Down with Liberals who tell us what we can and cant do!!!

So it begins. This indicates that game will indeed be really good and bloody. Damn those anti-games for banning games like these. Manhunt is not only violence and mindless gore, its a psychological story with superb cinematic elements and production values.

Thats a huge decision and a seriously bad one, i hope this does not set a precedent in anyway for violent videogames in the UK.

One kid was stabbed by a fan of Manhunt. Causing big news stories in UK. So this is a possible reason why Manhunt 2 will not be allowed to sell in UK.

@ uberwleiss: I think he is 15 yrs old. I cant remember but it was like a year or two ago.

This is the reason why it's not allowed in Uk.

Well Australia can kiss this game goodbye then. They released the 1st one briefly and then banned it once someone had time to complain which is how our arsebackward ratings board the OFLC works. I swear the God if EB games calls me and says my copy of Manhunt 2 is in, I'll be there 2 minutes later, get a PS2 and Wii version and run out the shop before they change their minds.

If you want to find something really disturbing go to a book shop, or worse yet have you heard of this thing called "The Internet?" Stop trying to do our thinking for us and let adults buy whatever games they like. There was a time A Clockwork Orange was banned for 20 years in this country, deemed to violent and now I can get it at Kmart. Those same pompus wankers probably cheer it now as one of Kubrics best insightful masterpieces.
