Judge Re-bans Manhunt 2 game

Manhunt 2 Moves to allow a 'dark and violent' adult video computer game to go on sale in the UK were blocked by a High Court judge who ordered that the matter be reconsidered.

The British Board of Film Censors (BBFC) refused to give Manhunt 2 a classification in case it fell into the hands of children.

Last month the Video Appeals Committee (VAC) lifted the ban when it allowed an appeal by US publishers, Rockstar Games Inc.

In a 4-3 majority decision, VAC ruled the videogame was 'unlikely' to cause harm to adults or children and gave it an 18 certificate.

But today (Thursday) a High Court judge in London ruled that VAC's decision was fatally flawed by 'a clear error of law' when it came to the test for assessing the question of harm.

Mr Justice Mitting said the committee must reconsider its decision in the light of his judgment.

During today's hearing, BBFC expressed concern that the VAC decision could have serious implications for its watchdog role 'not only in relation to video games, but generally'.
