MadWorld, which is a SEGA title exclusive to the Wii is getting some flac from some Brits for its violent content. John Beyer, director of Mediawatch-UK said, "I believe it will spoil the family fun image of the Wii. I hope the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) will view this with concern and decide it should not be granted a classification."
The game is a highly stylized black and white action game based on the concept of a hunting and killing game show, a la Schwarzenegger's The Running Man.
Nintendo's comment on the bruhaha: "MadWorld will be suitably age-rated through the appropriate legal channels and thus only available to an audience above the age rating it is given."
MadWorld is due out in early 2009.
