Ireland Jumps onto Manhunt 2 Ban Wagon

Sure and begorrah, ye won’t be buying yer copy of Manhunt 2 on the Emerald Isle.

In the wake of yesterday’s U.K. banning, Manhunt 2 has now become the first game ever to be banned in Ireland, according to a report on Midlands Radio

The Irish Examiner has more, including a quote from the Irish Film Censor’s Office (IFCO):

IFCO recognises that in certain films, DVDs and video games, strong graphic violence may be a justifiable element within the overall context of the work.

However, in the case of Manhunt 2, IFCO believes that there is no such context and the level of gross, unrelenting and gratuitous violence is unacceptable.
