BBFC want judicial review of the VAC's Manhunt 2 decision

Manhunt 2 isn't coming out anytime soon..

The BBFC is applying for a judicial review of the Video Appeals Committee's decision on Manhunt 2.

The ratings body says, "The BBFC is applying for a judicial review of the decision by the Video Appeals Committee to overturn the Board's rejection of the video game Manhunt 2. The Board's challenge also seeks suspension of the Committee's decision that the game should be classified.

"The BBFC is contesting the VAC judgement because in the Board's view, it is based on an approach to harm which is an incorrect interpretation of the Video Recordings Act.

"The VAC judgement, if allowed to stand, would have fundamental implications with regard to all the Board's decisions, including those turning upon questions of unacceptable levels of violence. If the VAC's decision is suspended, then the game will not be classified before the outcome of the Judicial Review."

Don't hold your breath...
