    As expected Ireland has followed suit with the ban:

    A prohibition order has been made by IFCO in relation to the video game Manhunt 2. The Order was made on 18th June 2007 under Sec 7 (1) (b) of the Video Recordings Act 1989 which refers to ‘acts of gross violence or cruelty (including mutilation and torture)’.

    IFCO recognizes that in certain films, DVDs and video games, strong graphic violence may be a justifiable element within the overall context of the work. However, in the case of Manhunt 2, IFCO believes that there is no such context, and the level of gross, unrelenting and gratuitous violence is unacceptable.

    ^^ don't see i0n post more than once in a thread too much these days.

    So...wouldn't all it take...is just order it from somewhere where it IS legal? I mean how does banning a game in certain regions help at all if the person can get it from somewhere else?

    That doesnt explain why the PS2 version was banned.

    Did anyone at the BBFC realise we're not all impressionable mindless children?


    I never add friend codes.

    There is still some hope
    Rockstar can appeal the ban to the Video Appeals Committee, an independent body chaired by John Woods. According to Sue Clark of the BBFC, there have only been about 20 appeals since 1984, and about half have been successful. The bulk of games to be banned by the BBFC have been pornographic; the last mainstream game to receive a ban was Carmageddon in 1997.
