    The developer of Manhunt 2 has won its appeal to force the British Board of Film Classification to look again at its ban on the game's release.

    The game has twice been rejected by the BBFC for certification, effectively banning the game for sale in the UK.

    Developers Rockstar contested the ban at the Video Appeals Committee, which ruled in the firm's favour.

    The game could now go on sale, if the BBFC, which is "considering the judgement", takes no further action.

    In a statement, Rockstar said: "We are committed to making great interactive entertainment, while also marketing our products responsibly and supporting an effective rating system.
