Manhunt 2 is the sequel to the 2003 stealth-action game that caused widespread controversy due to its violent content. The game seeks to provide "chilling suspense and stealth, whilst pushing the game design and storytelling forward".

The player follows the world of Daniel Lamb, a doctor and scientist trapped within "The Project", which is conducting questionable human experiments. He is aided by fellow prisoner Leo Kasper. The game maintains some cinematic elements of its predecessor (including the three degrees of kills and heavy use of stealth), with the Wii version including gesture-based executions.

The game is scheduled to be released summer 2007.

BBFC rejects cutted Manhunt 2

GI - October 8, 2007

Submitted by Just_Ben (14) at 4:18AM PST on October 8, 2007

The BBFC has again rejected Rockstar's Manhunt 2 despite the developer making cuts to the game after it was initially banned back in June. "We recognise that the distributor has made changes to the game, but we do not consider that these go far enough to address our concerns about the original version"

Manhunt 2 granted UK release

MCVUK - March 14, 2008

Submitted by Mushashi (6) at 6:19AM PST on March 14, 2008

Rockstar’s Manhunt 2 has finally been granted a UK release after a lengthy legal battle with the BBFC. The Video Appeals Committee today announced that it had upheld the High Court decision to challenge the BBFC’s refusal to give the game UK classification. The VAC has reconsidered the appeal in the light of the High Court’s verdict and decided, again by a majority of four to three, to allow the appeal on the basis that Manhunt 2 should be given an ‘18’ certificate.

Sony, Nintendo forbid AO-rated Manhunt 2

Gamespot - June 20, 2007

Submitted by Laoldar (16) at 3:17PM PST on June 20, 2007

"GameSpot has confirmed with Nintendo and Sony that one of those options--accept the ESRB's judgment and release the game with the AO rating--isn't an option at all. Both companies forbid licensed third-party publishers from releasing games rated AO for Adults Only on their various hardware platforms. Though Manhunt 2 isn't slated for any of Microsoft's systems, that company has also confirmed that it does not allow AO-rated titles on the Xbox or Xbox 360. " Not surprising, given what happened with San Andreas once it was re-rated (was pulled and re-released).
