    Yeh but it slightly toned down. Hopefully there will be a patch to get the old content back

    Re: ManHunt 2 finally granted rating for UK release

    i just read about this, i cant wait!!!

    "When PC Advisor Blog heard that Rockstar had softened the blind, unremitting violence in Manhunt 2 to get it reclassified for sale, we were so angry we could have stabbed ourselves in the neck with a shard of glass.
    But we feel much better now. Why? Because we've just heard that, according to IGN, which has tried out the notoriously sadistic video game both before and after the amendments, not much has changed. Hooray!"

    Re: ManHunt 2 finally granted rating for UK release

    sorry to double post but i read the end of the article and it said this:
    For the uninitiated, the Manhunt games reward successful sneaking manoeuvres with 'scripted' death sequences of occasionally breathtaking brutality. In the first game, you could smother your enemy with a plastic bag, for example, or do something uncalled-for with a baseball bat. But now, when you move in for the kill, the screen darkens and the action blurs. How is anyone going to get properly desensitised that way?

    how is that not changing much taking out the bloodthirst of the game! psycho's like me need this!

    Re: ManHunt 2 finally granted rating for UK release

    As has been said, I dare say a patch will become available, through official or unofficial channels that disables it.

    I'm surprised that there has been so much controversy over it, as long as it is only available to those over 18 then it shouldn't cause too many problems

    its those idiotic mums who buy these games for their infant child, see whats happening on screen and then think its the game's that are in the wrong and not them for buying their 12 year old Angel an 18+ copy of Manhunt.

    gotta love it

    Meh.

    Huzzah for the victory of sensible thinking over censorship but I still won't be buying it.

    I'm surprised all the violence wasn't removed - and the game changed to a knitting pattern generator...

    They will obviously have the content somewhere and had to remove it to make them happy. So id be surprised if their wont be a patch for it as it will be faily easy for tem to turn into a patch

    Re: ManHunt 2 finally granted rating for UK release

    The reviews I`ve read of the game all seemed to say it wasnt tat special really a bit average as a game.

    I will give it a go just to see what all the fuss was.

    The big problem atm is that because the game industry is so young and there are people like jack thompson out there whenever there is a killing or someone does something sutpid video games are the obvious place to lay blame not the parents who buy the games.

    Its wrong I know but I would find it funny if Jack thompsons own siblings flipped out and tried to kill him. Who would he blame then?

    The video games, obviously! Jack believes that the mere worldly prescence of such games corrupts children regardless of the efforts of their parents to prevent them having them (or not, parents shouldn't have to worry about such things as 'responsibility' for their kids).

    Re: ManHunt 2 finally granted rating for UK release

    Played this a bit last night and I am not impressed at all.

    The hype will not doubt help to sell a load of copies of this but the game is pretty dire. THe controls feel clumsy and the game just doesnt feel that much fun

    Re: ManHunt 2 finally granted rating for UK release

    I got this on the PSP, uncensored..
    It's alright, can't say I can really get into it though.. feels too much like you're just doing the same thing over and over.
