Modern Warfare 2

Modern Warfare 2 has been given an 18 by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).

It had a TBC 18 slapped on display boxarts for retailers, but now it is indeed confirmed.

The game passed certification without any cuts.

It’s also the first COD game to be given an 18. World at War was only a 15.

More through the link. Game’s out on November 10.

    I guess Activision won’t be too happy with this…

    I don’t see why Acti won’t be happy.

    Waw’s opening scene featured torture and throat slitting.

    MW2 is not GTA. as a matter of fact IW is no RockStar.
    MW2 is not on the same level as GTA series.

    I wasn’t comparing the games.

    Just that an 18 certificate shouldn’t effect sales.

    Has the government fixed their mistake yet or are BBFC ratings still not legally enforceable?
