16.03.08 - BBFC overruled: Manhunt 2 to get uk release

Violent computer game Manhunt 2 has been cleared for release in Britain after a ban was overturned.

The Video Appeals Committee took the decision to overturn a previous ruling by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) not to grant the controversial game a licence.

After a protracted legal battle the game, made by Rockstar Games, is now set for release with an 18 age certificate.


Manhunt 2 was originally banned in June 2007 and the BBFC also turned down an attempt to get an edited version of the game released.

The BBFC then took the case to the High Court after an initial appeal was upheld but now the battle looks to be at an end.

David Cooke, Director of the BBFC said: "As I have said previously, we never take rejection decisions lightly, and they always involve a complex balance of considerations.

"We twice rejected Manhunt 2, and then pursued a judicial review challenge, because we considered, after exceptionally thorough examination, that it posed a real potential harm risk.

"However, the Video Appeals Committee has again exercised its independent scrutiny. It is now clear, in the light of this decision, and our legal advice, that we have no alternative but to issue an '18' certificate to the game.”

Responding to the latest decision Rockstar said in a statement: "We are pleased that the VAC has reaffirmed its decision recognizing that Manhunt 2 is well within the bounds established by other 18+ rated entertainment.

"Rockstar Games is committed to making great interactive entertainment, while also marketing our products responsibly and supporting an effective rating system."

Manhunt 2 sees players take on the persona of an escaped asylum inmate and has been condemned for its "casual sadism".
