This is defiantly no surprise to a lot of people, but it seems the call has been made, Manhunt 2 has been banned for retail release in the UK!
David Cooke, Director of the BBFC said:
“Rejecting a work is a very serious action and one which we do not take lightly. Where possible we try to consider cuts or, in the case of games, modifications which remove the material which contravenes the Board’s published Guidelines. In the case of Manhunt 2 this has not been possible. Manhunt 2 is distinguishable from recent high-end video games by its unremitting bleakness and callousness of tone in an overall game context which constantly encourages visceral killing with exceptionally little alleviation or distancing. There is sustained and cumulative casual sadism in the way in which these killings are committed, and encouraged, in the game.
There is no doubt in my mind that using the Wii Remote and Nunchuck combination with this game would defiantly "liven" up the realism which could make the game a much more violent experience to Wii players. Didn't show any particular interest in this game, I never really saw it reaching Australian soil to begin with anyway.
