I read a lot about the violence in this game the last weeks and what I always heard was that it would be really authentic.

I read that Soldiers without a leg or an arm or wounded soldiers on the ground could still hurt their enemies.
But when I blow an arm or a leg they're dead immediatly.
No matter where I shoot them they just die.

From what I read before I expected really nice death-animations ect. but it turned out to be a normal shooter with some cruelties....

Is there a difference between the promo-versions and the final ?
Or between US and UK ?

*The game is still very good and bloody :D*

youll soon find out from your buddies here in the US :-D. personally I think there might be a difference. wasnt manhunt really different there and here it was how it was meant to be? i know that a lot of games that were too violent a la GTA were drastically changed. maybe im wrong tho. well just have to wait another grueling 8 days. :-(

It gets sensored because of some very dum plp who are trying to find a reason wy there child would kill someone..
A while back someone played manhunt and than invited a friend to the park where he killed him with a knife and a clawhammer, now his parent say that this kid was perfectly sane (yeah wright :rolleyes: ) and he killed the other kid because he played manhunt..

So now its banned in some country's, but not everywhere, in germany for example they're banning games for ages now, i remember Carmageddon, it had green blood because the red blood was to real (( we all now how realistic that game is :rolleyes: )
But here in holland i cant remember any games being sensored of banned ((i love this country :D ))

That's not right - there are only a few games that really got banned (bundesweit beschlagnahmt) in the german history (most of 'em because of racist content).

What happened here a lot was the "Indizierung" which means a game mustn't stand on the shelf and mustn't get advertised.
It's only allowed to keep those games in a special 18+ area or where children can't seem them.

That's why many publishers censored their german versions so they won't get indicated which means less profit.
But there have always been blood-patches in the internet....

Anyway: I always bought import-versions when the german where cut....(today I generally prefer the original language)

too true. im an american. its not all its cracked up to be. its better than being in a lot of other countries tho. the real drawback is that every other country in the world hates us. even tho the citizens didnt do anything wrong its the gov't and we cant do anything about what they do so please dont hate the US because our gov't is full of backwoods idiots. ;)

I heard Manhunt was banned in the UK to because like a 17 year old lured like a 14 year old into an ally or something and the 17 year old beat the 14 year old to death with a claw hammer and stabbed him with a knife, and he blamed it on the Game Manhunt

Well I have an update on that news about Manhunt:

they did find the game Manhunt, but not on the bad guy, they found it on the VICTIM!!

How stupid is that, the game is banned because of some news reporters making a (deliberate?) mistake to make something "sensational" about it.

@Hitman:

Not everybody hates the americans. But most dislike the american arrogancy, and politics. But not all the american citizens. We like Cameron Diaz for instance, and Jennifer Lopez, and Kate Beckinsale, and Katie Holmes, and and and.... . (DId I just say that out loud?)

Btw speaking about american politics: We have some American troops living across the street (there are several US basecamps here in the Netherlands). Don't ask me what they are doing here :-P. But they are nice people.

thats good to know. but the way i see it is that the gov't represents the people and that when we see a stupid or war mongering gov't we get the feeling that the whole country is that way. and thanks to lovely propaganda we all believe it. its messed up because i know for a fact that the average US citizen really doesnt care about what people do in their own countries but here comes the US gov't to interfere for some odd reason. idk its a really confusing thing to talk about because..... i cant really word it right now but when i do ill be sure to post it :-D.

yeah basically the countries government stands for the people, if the government and president and whatnot is arrogent and really pissy, then a lot of other countries think we are, also take for example, the Soviet Union, they were a communist nation and everyone looked down on them because of there choice of Government!! A lot of the people are really nice ya know, dont judge them just because the have a different government system, or how their leaders are ya know?

Well, if I had to judge them by government, I respect true communists (equal share fore everybody) more than capitalists where everythign is about money. The only drawback is that communism doesn't work irl.

communism definetley doesnt work. true communism would be the ideal form of government in my perspective. our "democracy" isnt a true democracy either. of course its our fault its that way but wed be a much happier people if we were true to our own words. what i would really like to see is that everyone just lives and does their job w/o pay becuz everything is free and you work only because you want to give stuff to your fellow man. so you could just go into a store and grab shellshock and walk out w/ it and no one would care at all. of course it wouldnt work if we just changed it right away but it would be a true utopia for me.

Communism does work, the system just needs the right leaders that would run it right, Communism is the "perfect" government, but you cant have the perfect government without perfect people right?

Commism hasnt worked yet because ALL the communist leaders want power for themselves, its perfect written in paper but no leaders carry it out, because they are power hungry, the only good leader that was close to it was Lenin, he was a good leader.

if we left Ho Chi Minh alone and wasnt so communist paranoid. i think communism wouldve worked for vietnam. youd agree to if youve read or watched his biography. he coulda been OUR communist.

yeah it depends, if a leader actallu did Communism how it was written by marx, it would work, but no one did really, except Lenin
