Manhunt 2 finally gets "M" rating

Rockstar Games caught a huge break today when the ESRB re-rated Manhunt 2 as Mature rather than the previous "Adult only" rating. After both Nintendo and Sony refused to allow Manhunt 2 on their consoles following the AO rating in June, Rockstar began tweaking the title.
Founder of Rockstar games, Same Houser stated, "Manhunt 2 is important to us, and we're glad it can finally be appreciated as a gaming experience." Mildly amusing sentiment, since it means they'll actually sell a copy. Anyway, he did go on to state, "We love the horror genre. Manhunt 2 is a powerful piece of interactive story telling that is a unique video game experience. We think horror fans will love it." Let's just hope there were no sacrifices in storyline to appease the ESRB.
Now that the rating has changed and all parties are happy, Manhunt 2 is back on track for their October 31, 2007 release.

ESRB is a b!+ch. what's the difference is the game was meant for 17 and up compared to a what, 18 or 21 and up? that's nonsensical to say the least, especially since parents will buy games for their kid regardless....

YES! Manhunt was awesome and I cant wait till this one comes out... just gotta wait for a Euro version to come out so I can buy it from the UK, or hopefully it comes to Australia.

Excellent, glad R* got it through. Horror games are the best, especially in surround sound. Can't wait to get it!

How much tweaking? I hope its not had its balls cut off. Anyway - I agree with blachaze - so long as its better than the crap games I have purchased so far - I'll be happier.

Good god, do we really care? Manhunt was a good laugh for about 15 minutes...then it was beyond boring...the same thing over and over again until you fell asleep...

I saw a sneak peek at the gameplay a while back and the co-op mode is sick.
