Can anyone explain to me why this should be an age 16 on the PS2 but a 15 on other more graphically capable platforms (XBox/PS3). Seems odd to me!

Curious I agree, though the version on the more advanced platforms is a BBFC 15 certificate, the 16 rating on this is more of an advisory tool.

Doesn't matter anyway: news.bbc.co.uk/1/h…stm

Retailers who sell violent video games and 18-rated DVDs to children cannot be prosecuted because of a legal blunder 25 years ago.

Dozens of prosecutions under a 1984 Act have been dropped because the government of the day failed to notify the European Commission about the law.

It's true, but I disagree that it leads to retailers taking a morally wrong stance on the issue.
