24.08.07 - Manhunt 2 to be released, censored, in October
Lame, really lame... lets see how the bbfc ban appeal goes, judging by BBFCs emotional response, there's a fishy zealous moral tone to it that is quite sickening. Hopefully it will be found to be in error, but I'm not so confident
The New York Times called this one -- a slimmer, sleeker, and we can only guess happier Manhunt 2 will hit shelves, appropriately enough, on Halloween. The ESRB issued a new rating for the game, lowering the Adults Only tag to Mature, which clears the game for release.
The game's fate in Europe, where it was banned in several countries, is as yet unknown, but we expect to hear some news on that front soon.
The entire debacle, though cleared up, is still disheartening. With the number of adult gamers increasing all the time, and comparisons between game and film content demonstrating the vast difference in standards, we hope that someday, something in the system will change. For now, however, it seems publishers and developers, and indeed, all of us, are at the mercy of the ESRB and the standards of Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft.
