I was on another website and came across this this link to the Manhunt 2 decision page at the British Board of Film Classification:

http://www.bbfc.co.uk/recent/index.php?media=digital%20media
You can find the actual rejection link about mid page.

Apparently the BBFC has again rejected the revised version of the game. So it looks like no Manhunt 2 for our friends in the UK. Rockstar doesn't sound to happy about it and have gone on the record that they will appeal the decision.
Personally I don't plan on playing the game even thought the revised version was accepted by the ESRB with an M17 rating. It only concerns me because my gut feeling is that the BBFC made up it's mind even before they had the revised copy in their hands. Not a good trend if it sets a precedent that will effect even less controversial video games.

so they get the full blown Witcher and we don't but we get Manhunt 2 and they don't.... it still sounds like they're making out on the deal  icon_wink

even i dont know what witcher is...manhunt however has a dark history in this country(UK). A 17 year old,killed a 14 year old in the style of one of the ways you kill someone in manhunt,when the first game was about 6 months old...when it became known that the 17year old loved manhunt,that was it...everybody here was calling for it to be banned(still talking about the first game dont forget),papers,news channels,mums,the fact that the first game was a 18 certificate didnt mean shit to the moms calling for the game to be banned......the 17 year old shouldnt of had the game anyway.........but because of that...everyone knew that manhunt 2,was going to have a difficult time here

i really feel that the game just wont see the light of day here ever........and because of that it really makes me wanna kill someone!!! icon_twisted
