In response to BBFC’s decision to reject the revised version of Manhunt 2 in the UK, Rockstar has issued an official statement saying they are going to appeal the decision and that games should get the same treatment as movies:

“We are continuing to appeal the British Board of Film Classification’s (BBFC) decision to deny the edited version of Manhunt 2 an 18+ certificate and thereby ban its release in the United Kingdom. The changes necessary in order to publish the game in Britain are unacceptable to us and represent a setback for video games.

“The BBFC allows adults the freedom to decide for themselves when it comes to horror in movies and we think adults should be similarly allowed to decide for themselves when it comes to horror in video games, such as Manhunt 2.”
