Default We Have The First AO (Adult Only) Game Rating

Manhunt 2 Rated AO?!
Is a Nintendo console delivering the first Adults Only console game ever?
by Daemon Hatfield

June 19, 2007 - We're all expecting the upcoming Manhunt 2 to be pretty gruesome. The original was one of the most violent games ever, but even that avoided the dreaded "Adults Only" rating from the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB). As violent as it was, it was deemed appropriate for "Mature" audiences. In fact, ever since the ESRB established the current rating system there has never been an AO-rated game on consoles…until now?

According to GamePolitics, Take-Two, which owns publisher Rockstar, has revealed Manhunt 2's rating, and it looks like it is the first console game to ever receive an AO label (not counting Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, also from Rockstar, which was retroactively rated AO for a short time when the Hot Coffee scandal erupted).

"The ESRB has issued an initial rating of AO (Adults Only) for Manhunt 2," Take-Two said. "We believe the process of rating videogames is to help people make informed entertainment choices and not to limit them. Manhunt 2 was created for mature audiences and we strongly believe it should receive an M (Mature) rating, aligning it with similar content created in other forms of media. We are exploring our options with regard to the rating of Manhunt 2."

There is an appeal process through which Take-Two can challenge the rating. An AO sticker on a game box is considered the kiss of death, as the biggest retailers, such as Wal-Mart, will refuse to carry such titles. Earlier today it was announced that Manhunt 2 will be banned in the UK due to its intensely violent content.

As of this writing, neither Take-Two nor Rockstar could be reached for comment.


Well think it will bring out more AO games.

I don't think it matters to them. I bet it sells 10 times more with that rating.

I'm curious how the game compares to Gears of War, which is pretty fuckin' gruesome in its own right. I mean, you can snipe mofo's heads off, blow 'em to bits, chainsaw the absolute hell out of 'em and so on...

Well it's the content of which the violence is in this game...like I've HEARD you can rape people and rip off balls and stuff like that.

I know the balls part is true, don't know about raping people.

Not really...I mean, yeah...I'm sure you can do all of that...but Manhunt was just vicious and raw.

Killing people with broken bottles, plastic bags, whatever is at hand.

The kill if done properly triggered a cutscene that went into graphic detail depicting the target's death. Graphic detail. Upclose and personal. Moneyshot.

It's basically a snuff video game, and the rating is most likely based on the fact that the violence in it isn't so much gory as it is simply deplorable.

If you want to know more, click here

I never bought the original...and to kill time while I wait for next year's tax refund I'll probably end up getting it, as I hear that as perverse and disturbing as it is, it's also just a gloriously good game...I might buy the sequel, depending on which console I invest in...

And way to go to the UK for censoring something that's already rated AO. That's so France of you, d00d.

Late.

The first game is amazing, the story line is great, the gameplay is good but needed work and hopefully its fixed, you will have a lot of fun with it if you haven't played it, but you will also get very frustrated if you don't be patient with it.

This isn't the first AO game, there have been others. But Manhunt is great, it's a lot like a horror film in terms of the tension that is delievered. Top notch game, II would be awesome.

I see. Thanks

Also, Manhunt II isn't being released on PS3 or Xbox 360, just the Wii, PS2 and PSP...well at least according to wikipedia.

Also, it isn't banned in the UK. It's illegal to sell, but not illegal to own.

Yeah, I heard it was coming out as one of the "Final" games for PS2...along with SVR08, Merceneries 2 and an alleged Star Wars game...

Goddamn...dragging out the end of PS2...it's like Sony's got their own version of the LOTR trilogy...

They're milking it for every penny that's for sure.

I can't say I blame them though...

PS2 installed userbase = 120 million+
PS3 installed userbase = 3 million+

Which console do you think will sell more copies of games? Even Boston should be able to answer that correctly

For Christ's sake, release on the 360 and call it a day or do what they did in Punisher and make some scenes black and white.
