Banned UK video game

Rockstar Games have been ordered to have their banned Video game, Manhunt 2 (banned in June 2007 in the UK), to be re-evaluated by an appeals committee.

A high court judge ruled in favour of the British Board of Film Classification’s appeal, but Rockstar said it did not understand the decision to spend public money repeating a certification process it had already passed.

We believe the Video Appeals Committee decision was correct and do not understand the court’s decision to expend further public resources to censor a game that contains content well within the bounds established by the British Board of Film Classification’s 18-plus ratings certification,

Rockstar said in a statement.

The game follows two survivors of a secret experiment that must fight their way out of an asylum.

When the game was first refused certification, effectively banning it, the BBFC said the game featured “sustained, casual sadism”.
