You know that if the controversial Manhunt 2 stayed in its original form, it’d be a damn fun game. But because some people in a church somewhere got their panties in a bundle over some fake blood on a TV, the game’s kill scenes have been reduced in both blood and violence. Take the above video, which showcases moves from the retail version of the game and the uncut, original version. Looks like there differences are only minimal changes, though I would prefer seeing a dude’s head cut off with a sword in all its glory.
If you watch closely, you’ll see that the retail version does some weird color/screen warping effect that I’m guessing is designed to “soften” the death visuals. What a pointless move by Rockstar.
