oh you whore.

Well once the ESRB rates it, that's when you know we're entering the final stretch :D

Ash_735 03-19-2008 06:24 PM

I'm keeping an eye on the BBFC, they are usually the last to rate the game, that is if they don't decide to rate it which means it won't be sold in the UK until it has gone through the VAC again like Manhunt 2 did, BUT, GTA IV doesn't look as violent and sadist as Manhunt 2.

So in UK it will be Just like every other GTA.

Good shit, ash! First ones with the news up (forgive me but I changed your post a bit :P)

I'm surprised to see only "Blood" rather than "Blood & Gore".

Tendercrisp 03-19-2008 06:26 PM

Aw, no taking apart bodies?

Other than that, no big surprise here.

Well here's the description of the Intense Violence descriptor:

Intense Violence - Graphic and realistic-looking depictions of physical conflict. May involve extreme and/or realistic blood, gore, weapons and depictions of human injury and death.
So there is still hope for gore with that. I would be somewhat surprised if you never saw any body parts blown off or insides leaking out.

Not a big surprise gta is always rated M.

claud3 03-19-2008 06:37 PM

I know no arms are legs on the ground sad one

Slim Trashman 03-19-2008 06:38 PM

Well I mean if gore were to exist in GTA IV, it certainly would not be as simple as sniping someone in the head and having their head disappear and blood spurting out.

claud3 03-19-2008 06:42 PM

that is true but if their is a gore cheat it would be fun

walter 03-19-2008 06:44 PM

No huge suprises here but still nice to finally see the rating. I'm just glad it's not rated Teen.

smoking12 03-19-2008 06:45 PM

I would like to see flying car cheat again or a cash cheat.
