"unique, formerly unheard of cinematic quality" indeed; unwanted by a civilized, intelligent
society which is not, of course, Zelnick's intended audience, only dumbed-down,
narrow-minded, incorrigible yard apes, violence-obsessed robots.

Banned video game is 'fine art'

Manhunt 2 is described by its makers as an 'entertainment experience'
The US publishers of a video game banned in the UK and Ireland have described it as a "fine piece of art".

Take Two chairman Strauss Zelnick said the game had his full support and that consumers should decide for themselves.

"It brings a unique, formerly unheard of cinematic quality to interactive entertainment, and is also a fine piece of 
art," Mr Zelnick said.

In rejecting the game, David Cooke, director of the BBFC, said: "Manhunt 2 is distinguishable from recent high-end video 
games by its unremitting bleakness and callousness of tone.

"There is sustained and cumulative casual sadism in the way in which these killings are committed, and encouraged, in 
the game.
