Well in the US they allowed it to have an M rating because the executions have this weird static red filter on them. There's a code in the game you can remove though that takes away that filter. So you can pretty much play it unedited.

Banned over here, only because the first one got so much media attention from that whole murder thing. Natch, the media blamed it on the game, looking for a quick scape-goat. The whole thing was a little bit stupid, in my opinion.

Gibson SG faded special -> Marshall MG 50/100 (working on a valve amp)

You guys who said it was banned better not be from Aus. I wanna play it!

It's in public interest to ban such a game. It is violent and obviously everyone who has ever played it will turn into a mass murderer; this may not happen in their current lifetime, but it could in someone else's, or after reincarnation, therefore justifying censorship.

Manhunt isn't my sort of game, but I fail to see the logic behind censorship when all it takes is the enforcement of the age restrictions on the boxes. In the summer my brother wanted a game in GAME, but he was refused at the counter. He made it evident that he was asking me to buy it for him, so they let me buy it anyway. It is the fault of irresponsible people like me that we have mad children with chainsaws running around town

Well the problem with an AO rating is that even though they have one, only PC games can be sold with AO ratings.


Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft do not allow AO games on any of their consoles. That is why Rockstar then in fact had to censor the game to get their M rating. I do think however that if that is the case, why is there an AO rating in the first place? It essentially means banning the game from all the major consoles. They should make games like Manhunt the standard for Mature and start rating games like Halo, Teen.

I do think Rockstar was really trying to push the envelope with this one. Its just so crazy.

The first one was a really bad game, the only thing that made it sell was the violence.

i don't understand how this was deemed AO and the original not (imo easily an AO title)

I would but its banned in the UK... thing is having games like this allow people to let off "steam" and stop them actually killing people.

Bollocks. That wouldnt stop any twisted serial killer...


Its for gorehounds. I dont mind it though, i get annoyed sometimes with shooters that when after you shoot a soldier or something, theres no bullet wounds on the corpse, or if they get blown up by a grenade, theres no slight dismeberment. They look brand new! Thats the only realism i ask for. I find it more satisfyling, seing the slight puff of blood and a pretyy decent ragdoll death animation.

manhunt though.. i mean seriously, i have no intentions of chainsawing someones peeper. Even in a game. Painitng the wall with massive amounts of blood. It gets ull

Who'd want to? It's goes beyond violent. In fact, if you get pleasure from playing it, you might be a little weird. You've definitely been desensitised to violence. Besides, I'm pretty sure it's been banned in this country.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

A friend of mine works for Rockstar UK as a games tester, and he said that it's stupidly gory and crap.

And yes, the wiimote could have been used to saw people's heads off. I don't know if that's a feature anymore.


A friend of a friend who works for Rockstar said everyone that had to work on it besides the team who came up with it really hated the game and didn't want to make it because of how needlessly gory it was.

And I wanna play this game. Weirdness aside, I thought the first game was AWESOME.

You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

It's actually quite fun.
I was playing it at my friend's place last night for a few hours.
It's crap IF you don't have the uncut version.
Makes it soooo much better when it's uncut.
Without the gore, and violence, It's a pretty crappy game.
But it's not bad all up, pretty fun if you wanna waste a few hours.

You have to stand close to the corpse's head and then chop it off from there.

I heard that it got an Adults Only rating until they edited some things out. One of the things they edited out was a castration scene. That is so disgusting. I mean who the hell thought of that? That is just too much too put into a game. I told one of my friends that and he said, "Awesome. That would be cool." WTF?

Whats the point of banning this game when we have to watch **** like Hostel and Saw.

Because some parents can't take the responsibility of raising their kids right so they have to find forms of entertainment to blame for all the bad things their kids do.
