"A sequel to violent video game Manhunt has been banned in Britain, it was announced today.
The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) rejected Manhunt 2 on the grounds of its "casual sadism" and "unrelenting focus on stalking and brutal slaying".
The game constantly encourages visceral killing, it said.
The BBFC's ruling means the game cannot be legally supplied anywhere in the UK.
It is the first video game to be refused a classification since 1997.
Against this background, the Board's carefully considered view is that to issue a certificate to Manhunt 2, on either platform, would involve a range of unjustifiable harm risks to both adults and minors within the terms of the Video Recordings Act.
The company has six weeks to submit an appeal.
The last game to be refused classification was Carmageddon in 1997. The BBFC's decision was overturned on appeal.
The original Manhunt game caused huge controversy and was blamed for the murder of a 14-year-old schoolboy."
