You will want to keep the kids in your life away from the "game" Manhunt. I also wonder about any adult who would want to play ManHunt? Not sure I'd want to count them as one of my friends.
At a press conference in San Francisco, Calif., James Steyer, CEO of the children's advocacy group Common Sense Media, called Manhunt 2, "one of the most horrifically violent games that we've ever seen. It features a variety of different executions and is really a very, very violent almost unwatchable game."
Manhunt 2 had previously been rated "Adults Only," for players 18 and older, which would marginalize the game since many major retailers refused to sell games with that rating. Rockstar made some tweaks to the game -- removing a graphic scene of castration, for instance, and received a new rating of M -- for players 17 and up -- paving the way to the big-box stores like Wal-Mart and Circuit City.
“The impact of the revisions on the bleakness and callousness of tone, or the essential nature of the gameplay, is clearly insufficient,” the BBFC wrote. “There has been a reduction in the visual detail in some of the 'execution kills,' but in others they retain their original visceral and casually sadistic nature.”
