The videogame Manhunt2 was released on Halloween amidst controversy over ratings. The premise of this violent game is
that the player is a patient trying to escape from a mental hospital who must kill or be killed.

Originally rated M for Mature audiences, child advocates convinced raters that it should be rated AO
for Adults Only, meaning that no one under 17 could purchase the game. After modifying the game, the creators
were able to return to the M rating before the game was released.

Dr. Michael Rich, Director of CMCH, was interviewed about his thoughts on the game and the
ratings controversy.
