DAILY MANIFESTO

The Other Violent Meat

Posted on Thursday, June 21 @ 19:44:50 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
All this hoopla about Manhunt 2's AO rating got me wondering what other games were violent enough to get an AO. Turns out, there's only one: Thrill Kill.

No, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas doesn't count, it was re-rated for its not-fully-deleted sexual content, not its violence which only scored it an M. Plenty of other games, like Singles: Flirt up your Life, also got their AO rating for sexual content. Only Thrill Kill was purely about the violence.

In a sad sign for Manhunt 2, Thrill Kill was never released. Virgin Interactive was going to publish it for the Playstation, but then they got bought by EA just a few weeks before the game's launch. EA, however, immediately pulled the plug and said they'd never publish such a violent game. The four-person fighting game engine developed for the game was used in Wu-Tang Shaolin Style, however.

I don't know if it counts as piracy or not since the game was never released, but you can download it here if you like.

As a sign of the times though, based on that footage, I'd say that Thrill Kill  would never get an AO rating now, with those silly, over-the-top kills and now-primitive graphics.
