Default ManHunt 2 banned

Just heard that ManHunt 2 has been banned in Britain, since the board of classification won't even place an 18 certificate on it.

The first game apparently hit the end of the 18 certificate spectrum.

I can't say I'm surprised.

More info here:

LOL Wii version, it's going to feature Mario and have lots of pretty colours. How can it get banned on the Wii and PS2, the graphics are too shit to show anything significant.

Plus I don't care about seeing stuff like that, I am not affected by violence or brutality.

Nothing wrong with the Wii. Just brings another level of interactivity with the game, even if it involves violent acts.

There is a reason why the Wii is selling stronger than the PS3 and Xbox 360.

EDIT>>> It's official. Manhunt 2 is now rated Adults Only.

Haha, are you older than 18?

Keep in mind that video game retailers such as EB Games, Game Crazy and GameStop are far more strict about Adult Only games compared to Mature games.

Additionally, major retailers like Wal-Mart, Fry's Electronics, Best Buy, Circuit City etc. will not stock games with an AO rating.

It's not the first console game to get an AO rating. GTA: San Andreas got the AO rating after the Hot Coffee Mod. It was originally Mature.

Not many games get AO. It's quite rare.

EDIT>>> There have been 23 AO rated games to date. Manhunt 2 is numero 24.

why is that? Mario has been trying to kill those little innocent turtles for like 30 years by jumping on them all the time!

Nintendo has been trying to get titles that are catered towards gamers who like games that are Mature or AO rated in order to shake off the stereotype that the Wii is a console for little cutesy-poo kids who don't have anything better to do than to play Wii Sports.

well you could always buy it from some other european country, the shipping doesn't cost much. Once I was looking at one game at some british online store and they promised fee shipping inside EU.

If it's banned, you can buy it from the US off eBay. Then again, if the region code is different it might not play on a European PS2...

I don't see why you would. Maybe if you would buy it from north america, but I don't think there is any difference in the games inside the EU.

i heard this. its the stupidest ive ever heard. people become murderers, drug addicts and all that stuff because of bad parenting, where they live, and general retardation, not because of video games. ive played manhunt 1. i just thought it was funny.
