European gamers hoping to play Manhunt 2
should call their Dutch friends, because if the game's coming out anywhere in Europe, it'll be there. This isn't because the Dutch government loves
their games murdery, but because there's no legal way to prevent the game's sale. They can, however, prosecute people under 16 for buying or playing it.
This doesn't mean that the Netherlands will get an uncut version of the game, or any
version at all. It's up to Rockstar to decide if it's worth the trouble to release a different version of the game. At this point, with Manhunt 2
effectively banned in Germany
and the UK
, there's some question as to whether they'll release it anywhere in Europe in any form.
