Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

Manhunt 2 from Take-Two Interactive has been dealt another set back shortly after being banned from sale in the UK. The game ahs received the rating AO (adults only) by the ESRB pretty much ensuring you will only be able to buy it online since stores like Wal-mart and Best buy don’t typically carry AO rated games.

The game was given that rating based not on nudity or sexual content, but rather for what has been called extreme violence. Supposed examples of this extreme violence are being able to castrate enemies with pliers (ouch!), sawing someone’s head in half and killing enemies by bashing their head into an electrical box.

That sort of violence sounds a lot like the last installment of the Saw franchise to me now that I think about it. I’m not sure I get the ratings group for video games, I don’t think if we were talking about a movie that they would rate it NC-17 for depicting these sorts of acts. Even main stream, popular films such as “Letters from Iwo Jima” have some very graphic violence where the Japanese soldiers blow themselves up with grenades when they realize they can’t win the battle. It seems that ratings for games and movies should be more in line with each other to me.
