So as some of you may or may not know, Manhunt 2 is a game by Rockstar Games as a sequel to their 2003 Manhunt. The game was developed to ship on the PS2, Wii, and PSP this month but has been temporarily suspended by Take-Two(the publishers) due to a rating rejection in the United Kingdom and an AO rating in the United States.
What does this mean? Manhunt 2 was either very fucking sick and twisted, or vulgar. Actually, probably a combination of both. If you havn't seen anything about Manhunt 2, just head over to http://www.rockstargames.com/manhunt2/index2.html and check out the trailers. Sure it's not insanely great trailers, but does the game look pretty crazy or what?
I guess what I'm trying to ask, is after being practically forced to change some content to meet the M rating, as opposed to the AO rating, for United States at least, what do you think the game will come to?
Will it come to: Manhunt 2, a good game that got watered down just slightly, but is still pretty crazy,
or Manhunt 2: Whack a Mole style.
I'm hoping for A, but have a feeling it will be the latter.
Also, props to Take Two for standing by Rockstar and Manhunt 2, not to mention them downing the BBFC and ESRB rating. They brought up a good point. What is the point of having a rating (AO in this case) at which point a game cannot even be sold? (Sony and Nintendo do not allow AO rated games to be sold on their consoles.)
Also as usualy, fuck you Jack Thompson for putting your head into anything that is a video game you piece of shit.
"In a letter to Wendy's CEO Kerrii Anderson, Thompson demanded that the restaurant drop an upcoming promotion featuring children's toys designed after the Wii games Excite Truck, Wii Sports and Super Mario Galaxy because Manhunt 2 was scheduled for release on the console. An excerpt from Thompson's letter states: "Dave Thomas never would have tolerated the use of Wendy’s good name to promote Nintendo’s Wii, not with this game available on the Wii platform."
Lmao, so discuss: How will Manhunt 2 turn out, and how much do you wish Jack Thompson would just disappear? read
