    While the resubmitted and edited version of Rockstar's Manhunt 2 was issued an M rating in the Americas, the BBFC has once again put its foot down for the 'good' of society. All is not lost though for anyone wanting to get the original iteration of this game, as it seems a completely unedited version will be released in the Netherlands.

    Thats lame really.
    I get it fine, but people over there don't.

    I know it's violent or whatever, buts it only a game.
    Its not the end of the world.

    with Play.com shipping from Jersey would they be able to distribute Manhunt 2 as they dont fall under english law. also, does anyone know if the US version is PAL compatible?

    well i'm glad in ur country they have the decency of taking the game out. From what i hear, manhunt just sounds sick, and it seems like it would promote this type of behavior, maybe only a small percentage of change, but change nonetheless. there is a dif in gta, (killing innocent people, which promotes all kinds of things) and manhunt, (torturing people, not fun.) Whats next for rockstar, hs shooting games?

    Why are they actually banning it?
    Anyways I am sure the uncensored one from the Netherlands will be made available for everyone through int mail. Some dutch shops will focus on the export sale due to the bbfc lame approach....

    no one in the uk needs to worry about this ban, as the netherlands version will work in the uk as both countries use PAL as the tv standard, everyone else can get a wiikey mod chip as they are soooo good

    Yes, we're getting the censored version that was resubmitted to the ESRB, and received an M rating.

    I guess it's better than nothing.

    This game is really gross. It's one thing being the hero in a game but being the guy that tortures people and kills them. Yuck, plus, with this game coming out on the wii what motion controls are we looking at. i'm not too sure about this game.

    Rockstar has responded to the latest rejection of Manhunt 2 by the BBFC.

    I'm ambivolent to this. On the one hand, it's a case of the BBFC Nannying and basically dicatating what supposedly free adults can play and watch.

    On the other hand, I don't think it was all that great a loss for the game itself. The graphics weren't all that great, and the trailers didn't really appeal to me (except one of the earlier trailers, where it showed some of the "story").

    Now if this was Mortal Kombat or something, then I'd be definate in my protests to do fatalities on my foes...

    This has been proved, constantly, to be false.

    It was actually the deceased that was the one that owned the game, whilst the killer had never actually played it.

    People just like to see their name in the media.

    Do some research next time.

    Does nobody actually realise, that the original manhunt was a poor game at best?

    Contraversy conquers all I guess :(
