    British censors are seeking a judicial review to block the sale of controversial video game Manhunt 2.

    Last week developer Rockstar won an appeal to have a ban on the title's release in the UK lifted.

    But the British Board of Film Classification says that decision was based on an incorrect interpretation of the Video Recordings Act.

    The game was first banned in June, as was a revised version of the game which was presented to the BBFC in October
