Child Advocates Upset Over Video Game "Manhunt 2"

Child advocates are urging parents not to
buy the video game "Manhunt 2."
The game features characters who kill and torture using
implements ranging from glass and shovels to a fuse box and a
toilet.
Rated "mature," the title goes on sale Wednesday and is
considered appropriate for people 17 and up. It's made for Nintendo
Wii (wee), Sony PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 2 and costs
$28.
The game has been generating controversy since June, when the
Entertainment Software Rating Board gave it a rating of "adult
only." That would have excluded it from some big-box retailers,
including Wal-Mart. Producers at Rockstar Games submitted a
modified version of "Manhunt 2" later in the summer that got the
"mature" rating in August.
