British Censors Ban Manhunt 2

NOW everyone will want it:

British censors have banned a violent video game from the UK for the first time in a decade.

The video game Manhunt 2 was banned for its “unrelenting focus on stalking and brutal slaying”, the British Board of Film Classification said.

David Cooke, director of the BBFC, said: “Manhunt 2 is distinguishable from recent high-end video games by its unremitting bleakness and callousness of tone.

“There is sustained and cumulative casual sadism in the way in which these killings are committed, and encouraged, in the game.”
