thats a really good poin but its not the killing that is in question(plenty of other games have killing in them) its the manner in which its done. im not fussy if they ban it either way because we can all get it if we really want it.

banning it will possibly turn it into a cult classic, i mean look at all the horror films they banned and now they are considered classics even though they are mostly :turd: anyway

No banning it is bad, really bad. Anyone remember the game "Thrill Kill" on the PSOne? I was very young but i really wanted that game, i would read previews about it every month and then it got banned from every country...It was on par with Mortal Kombat on violence, as i play it on my psp from time to time thru ps1 emulation. The game isn't very polished and you can tell they gave up on it once it was blocked...Though maybe this will be different. Manhunt 2 will be a finished product and be released here in NA. There is a possibility if it gets great reviews and strong sales here it could push alot of online import sales. Also they may even overturn the ban and end up releasing it there. Anything can happen especially since there is still 3 weeks til release. I would take Rockstar's response today as them saying " F. U. We ain't changing our game for you old hacks" so don't hold out for an edited version of the game in the uk...


Also American Buyers: I was just at my local EB Games and the clerk said this: "From what we are hearing, it looks like the only way to buy it in store at an EB is to Pre Order Only unless they overturn the AO rating"

P.S. I preordered mine for PSP

ManHunt just wasn't my sort of game. I prefer decent FPS games and the gameplay of ManHunt seemed very repetitive to me. Despite thinking that the game is crap, I do feel stongly that it shouldn't be outright banned, an 18 certificate would be more than enough. I may not like the style of game myself but there are plenty of other people out there who actally enjoy playing a game of repetitive bloodyness. At the end of the day, most 18 year olds in the UK understand that its morally wrong to stab a policeman in the face or cut up people with a chainsaw.

You've never truly played the game, have you? Manhunt is NOTHING like GTA. You don't steal cars, you don't do missions, you don't get money, you don't get prostitutes, you don't get in gangs. Manhunt you simply kill your way to the head guy and kill him. That's all it is(fun as hell though ).

I would totally go play it right now on my 17" Widescreen lappy with a 6800 Go!! I can max it out so it's sexy but the charger is dead and lappy has 20 idle mins left lol

I loved the chainsaw in the first one, where you could start it up real quick chop off a head or two then stop it and be stealthy again.
