Rockstar has decided to appeal against the British Board of Film and Video Classification's ban on the game Manhunt II. The censors banned  the game saying it contained "sustained and cumulative casual sadism" along with its "unremitting bleakness and callousness of tone."

A press release from Rockstar says that Take-Two Interactive Software has confirmed today that Rockstar Games had appealed the British Board of Film Classification decision that prohibited the release of any version of Manhunt 2 in Britain.

A BBFC spokesman has confirmed this. Next is the VAC's chairman of appeals, John Woods, will pick a selection of people to sit on the panel and vote as to whether the ban should be overturned and the game issued a certificate.
