Why did they censor this game? it's rated M FOR MATURE! They should of released it as an AO game if they had to, anyhting but butcher the product. people would still buy the crap out of it if it were rated AO. Now that they cut out all the good stuff from this game, I ended up not buying it. Seeing the screen turn colors to block out the murder scenes ruined this game for me. If this game would of been released uncut, i would of payed full price for it and given it an 8 or 9 out of ten.

Kevin VanOrd disembowels Manhunt 2 in this video review.
The first Manhunt backed up its subject matter and violent, shocking themes with strong storytelling and clever meta-observations about violence in general.On the other hand, Manhunt 2 is devoid of any deeper meaning.Its only the core, basic mechanics of the first game but this time without anything remotely interesting, story-wise.Recommended only for gorehounds.
@carloscanalesv Manhunt 2 could of been good, maybe better than the 1st. But they censored it and lost a lot of customers because of it.
I just found fully uncenssored version on PC,and it is even more gory and disturbing than first Manhunt.A great game.But censored version probably sucks,because you get no gory reward for being patient and stealthy.
@Rocker6 You're darn lucky! I've been looking everywhere for the uncensored version and so far, I've run outta luck.
How pathetic are ERSB? Yes, it's extreme, sadistic violence, but at the end of the day it's just a game. The idea is to take pleasure in these disturbing killings, and that toned down visual effect to disorientate you whilst commiting the vicious act is disappointing to see. I guess a Manhunt 3 won't happen if a PS2 games content can cause it to be nearly banned. They would faint at what the PS3 could do.
I want to simulate me chopping a guy's head off with a set of shears then rip open his head on the Wii
When he shot that dude the top of his head exploded and bleed....so why can't they just show that in the kill moves
@geoff-uk123 F*** ESRB if they are that retarded that they can't figure out that the violence in this game was nothing we have not seen before in other m rated titles. Even if it was AO i doubt that would effect the sales of any console or game. If a game was AO I know I would be more likely to buy it and I am sure other people would too if it was a good game.
@geoff-uk123 why though...the 1st manhunt got an M rating...Soldier of Fortune Payback on PS3 got an M rating...Gta San andreas got an M rating...wtf is the deal?
@aaronfhff123: The reason was because the violence was so high that it was given an AO-rating (The highest rating) but they had to censor it in order for it to obtain an M-rating since Sony and Nintendo don't allow AO rated games on their systems.
Manhunt was amazing...this sequal had the potential to be better than the 1st one but it fails because for some dumb reason, the creators decided to make the screen turn colors during the executions...so lame. Hopefuly manhunt 3 wont be so cencored...ITS RATED M FOR MATURE WHY CENSOR IT????
Although I do appreciate sadistic violence of all denominations, I don't think senseless violence and stealth based games mix well for me. If I'm going to be beheading a guy and eating his entrails, I want to be able to do so without having to walk really slowly up to him, I'm sure the game does what it does well, it's just not my type of thing.
Manhunt 1 is far better... but this sequel is more than correct, and faithful to the merciless nature of the original... if you get the Pc version of course.
ill probly download this game for the PC sine i dont own a PS2 unless the PS3 startes supporting PS2 titles
I never owned any part of manhaunt but after I so that review I want to own one and I'm guessin' that it's gonna be the second part.
I absolutely loved the first game,was eagerly awaiting Manhunt 2 but to be frank it turned out to be one of the worst sequel's in recent memory and one of the worst developed by Rockstar games and it wasn't because of the filters,censorship and so on,but the game has issues in its core elements itself just disappointing to say the least.
Censored cr**. I bought my ps2 version - uncensored without this black'n'white s****. Underground markets rock :P
He's not killing anyone violently, he's epileptic people. This is a children's game and we clearly don't allow violence! Because, as we all know - people who play violent games grow up to be murderers! .. So why don't people who watch soaps grow up to have exciting and eventful lives? They kill people in TV programs and they're not banned or blurred.
Yet again,this is a very violent game,so not much of entertainment on that matter.The stealth can maybe overshadow that.
I still dont understand why the gore had to be blurred if they were so uptight about this title the best they could of done is only sell it behind counters not on store shelfs
I found the game to be thoroughly enjoyable. Despite having to struggle with the controls a little I was beheading fools and bludgeoning them with baseball bats in no time!
It will be a long time until Australia will ever get a chance to get a hands on it but it can't be done with Michael Atkinson's "games for kids" mantra which holds back the idiotic ministers desicion to have an R rated game. Well it will take a miracle for that to happen.
Damned programmers, why they put the stupid filter in the wii version, i knew that they were forced to low the violence but why ruined a game of gore action. Mmm i won´t buy this one.
According to the BBC news: "The goriest scenes were blurred out in the American version of the game but have been removed altogether in the UK."
