Manhunt 2 reworked for new rating!

Post by melancholy » Wed Jun 27, 2007 1:05 am

I must give Rockstar props. It looks like nothing was lost in the editing. It still appears to be as intense as ever!

To be honest, I don't really have a problem with Manhunt 2 getting an AO rating. I mean, I understand that video games are treated more harshly than more traditional forms of media, but seriously. Manhunt was an incredibly sick, brutal game. If the sequel is supposed to be *moreso*, well...yeah. Of course, I don't understand how things like the (also sick, disturbing) Saw movies got away with an R rating when Robocop got an X, either.

It probably should get an AO rating, and I think we need AO games. That's just part of video games broadening their horizons.

But when you take into account that (AFAIK), there's official word from both Sony and Nintendo that they won't allow AO games on their consoles... that makes it incredibly hard to justify leaving the game w/the rating as is.

Maybe if they renamed it Foxhunt it would be okay.

Still a lot more violent than Mortal Kombat for the SNES.

I'm sorry. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me. It's just... ever since my parents were killed by a pack of roving wolves, leaving me to fend for myself in the great big world with no one to count on but myself, it's just hard to find it in my heart to laugh. I don't want to bring y'all down, it's just... well, every time I hear a joke, all I can see is their smiling faces... And I just have to break down and cry.
