Manhunt 2 banned

Yes, the sequel to the game that was withdrawn from circulation has been banned by the BBFC. I am not a gamer but find it surprising that the BBFC needed to reject this title. I do not doubt that it is excessively violent but when will the BBFC learn that people do not copy what they see on screen? Earlier in the year the BBFC produced a report on violence in games that led to the decision that they would relax the games ratings system yet now they choose to ban a game because it is violent? Perhaps the reason for doing this is to avoid the media panic that would have no doubt emerged once had the game been released. And with the global nature of the media what is stopping the gamer from ordering an international copy? It would probably be cheaper to import the game than buy it in the UK anyway. At least they are no longer banning horror films.
