Paul Nelson, KSL Newsradio Some people are calling it the most violent thing they've ever seen, and parents in Utah are joining others across the country in saying they're upset over the release of a new video game.

You need to verify your age before you can even enter the website for "Manhunt 2." In it, you escape from an insane asylum and brutally kill and torture people, using any means necessary.

Some people say it should be considered like an X-rated movie. "A video game, even for adults, to teach them how to kill is absolutely outrageous," one woman said.

Others say this game is probably not very different from others where you have to kill innocent bystanders. Besides, they say, you don't have to get your child a copy. "That's what there is a variety for; just like with movies," a man said.

But, some parents say even if they don't let their kids play the game, that doesn't mean that their friends' parents won't as well.
