Manhunt 2 to be released in the UK

By on

The BBC is reporting that UK gamers will be able to play the controversial game Manhunt 2 on October 31 for the PlayStation 2, PSP and Wii. Originally released in the US last year, it was refused classification by the British Board of Film Certification in July 2007 after the game’s plot – which sees players assume the role of a mental asylum patient, who must try to escape with improvised weapons and to discover why he has been imprisoned.

It has been given a 18 rating certificate after it made several changes, including the goriest scenes being removed in the UK version.
