You can’t say that there are no “mature” games on Wii. Since the console’s release six months ago, we’ve already seen two M-rated titles in The Godfather: Blackhand Edition and Far Cry Vengeance. And in the next few months alone, several more are on the way, including Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition and Scarface: The World is Yours. However, none of them can compare to the blood-soaked effort that is Manhunt 2 from publishing powerhouse Rockstar. In fact, no game we have ever played or seen is as over-the-top violent or downright gross as this action-stealth splatter fest. Grasshopper Manufacture’s Suda 51 recently promised to make his upcoming Wii exclusive No More Heroes “… as violent or more violent than Manhunt 2.” Suda, we’ve experienced Manhunt 2 in action on Wii and we can write without a second’s hesitation that you really have your work cut out for you.

Consider for one moment that in Manhunt 2 you can, Wii remote and nunchuk in hands, use a pair of pliers to clamp onto an enemy’s testicles and literally tear them from his body in a bloody display; and if that weren’t enough, you’ll take one of the poor victim’s vertebrae along with his manhood. Or, if you’d prefer, you can use a saw blade and cut upward into a foe’s groin and buttocks, motioning forward and backward with the Wii remote as you go. But believe it or not, there is much more to Manhunt 2 than mutilation and mayhem. This is a game that begins with the subject of psychosis.

    I can’t believe that this is coming out. The first one was absolutely terrible. I think it’s as close to “murder simulator” as you can get. It was actually pretty disturbing.

    It’s a game! It’s escapism! Nothing more. Retailers just need to be extra careful who they sell it too. Looks like fun to me

    Why not? Adults are free to make up their own minds about what they are exposed to, and as an adult who has never committed a crime of any kind, an adult who plays all the Grand Theft Auto games and has never stolen a car or beaten anyone to a pulp, I would feel insulted by anyone who believes that I shouldn’t play this game because it ‘might make me go out and hack someone to death with an Axe’.

    Have faith in the human brain to tell the difference between what is right and what is wrong. ;)
