Haha..I expected as much. It's pretty violent. I can't wait.

Wrong forum though. Should have posted in either Wii or PS2.

I really enjoyed the first game, not purely because of the gore, but the fact it brought a whole new dimension to this genre. Not simply being stealth-like and killing guys with pistols or rifles, but a game which primarily focussed on hand-to-hand (or bat-to-carrier-bag) combat. I think it's insulting (to say the least) for bodies such as the BBFC to suggest that gamers cannot differentiate from gaming and reality.....disappointing really

It's been delayed in the US as well due to the AO rating. :(

Wow i have always liked Manuhunt this news has saddened me deeply, to tell you the truth i dislike people that blame violence on a videogame, it's a parents job to keep their child protected from 18 rated video games, if they fail in doing this i believe it's the parents lack of discipline that should be questionable.

"The BBFC has rejected Rockstar's Manhunt 2, banning the controversial title from sale anywhere in the UK"

I don't know any of the UK laws, but would you still be able to order it online or something? Or would it be illegal just to own the game?
