Manhunt 2 - Nintendo Wii
Rockstar never submitted the game to the Australian rating board in fear of it been banned. My thoughts are due to Manhunt 1 getting banned Rockstar would have no chance with Manhunt 2 getting released in Australia even though it the game was edited.

I'm not from Australia but I'm glad the European PEGI system we have aren't that bad when rating games. I thought I'd make this list showing the banned or edited video games in Australia however the Australian rating system is poor 15+ is the highest rating put a 18+ on the ratings for god sake. This list also games modified to meet the Australian rating system.

Games missing from the list are Voyeur, Dreamweb
