Manhunt 2 to be released in the UK at last?

Woah, load up with holy water and retarded political activist repellent because things just got interesting. Manhunt 2, the most popular game of all time with parents and English tabloid newspapers is to get released in the UK on October 31st, 2008. The game has been effectively banned by the BBFC for the past year as they refused to classify it for its 'obscene' violence, despite the fact they often pass 'torture porn' movies like Hostel though to every major cinema in the country. When called out for not knowing anything about the game or games in general the BBFC had a massive hissy fit and power struggle in which it got bitch slapped by PEGI and everybody with half a brain on the planet. People queued for this shit, and then came back again to queue the next day.

It's about time this game made it to our shores. I don't want to end up living in the Australian gamer ghetto and never getting to play anything that is fun. Still, I guess the Germans have it worse. It's actually against the law to release any Nazi themed games over there, so they don't get any of the old COD games or Wolfenstiens - non Nazi based but still violent games also get banned.
