cant see what all the fuss is about,Its only the same as you see in a film.but because it is a "game" some people think that it is going to be played by some 6 year old mario genius so that instantly makes it bad.After all it does carry an 18 cert so no 6 year old should get there hands on it anyway.

I loved the first manhunt on my ps2 the things you could do with a plastic bag....

But the fact is that 6 year olds do end up playing it. I mean take a look at CoD4, the certificate is 16 and everyone playing seems to be 11.

Yes =P. I like gaming but there's no need for a game where you can disembowel someone with a crowbar, it's just OTT.

I agree with this really

I think some games are ok and seem to have limits.

It's a shame certain games developers try to push for more and more gore in games which will undoubtedly be played by people under 18. I'd almost go as far to say that the majority of the people who play it will be under 18.

When the whole basis of the game is killing people in graphically gruesome ways, it should be banned without question.

The whole selling point seems to be the idea of killing people graphically (should kids/people be actively thinking about this, let alone seeing and acting this out?), the fact it was banned and also the fact it is 18cert (which will lead to under 18's trying their hardest to get it)

Personally i dont think anyone has a foot to stand on when it comes to banning a game. I mean, spend 5 min on google and you can find a vid of someone being beheaded, or i remember seeing a fail suicide bombing attempt and watching the man die whilst everyone laughed and kicked his torn limbs around.

There worse things out there than a computer game so just let it be released.

On the side a little, wasnt it originally banned due to someone chopping off their mates head with a level 2 meat cleaver kill???

Just because there are worse things out there doesn't mean you have to add to the collection.

I cant believe this is even being discussed.

You dont have to go out and buy the game. Therefore, for those of us who like it then why not buy it?

Also, look at this, you have games like CoD 4 and Half Life 2, all FPS'er games. They involve killing and shooting things, some games even allow you to shoot birds out of the sky, or in FEAR you can kill the rats that run around, what you going to do, ban the game due to it being cruel to animals?
