KILLZONE 2 is a first-person-shooter sequel for the PlayStation 3 in which the player takes the role of a space marine in a battle against a humanoid alien race. The game was passed ‘18’ on the basis of strong, bloody violence.

As with many first-person-shooters, the range of weapons available to the player is extensive, including various handguns, machine guns, shotguns, sniper rifles, rocket launchers, mortars and grenades and a flamethrower. Some of these weapons are powerful enough at close range to blow enemies limbs or heads off and most result in some bloody injury. Use of the flamethrower can result in characters taking much longer to die, often flailing around on fire and screaming beforehand. This proves too strong for the BBFC Guidelines at ‘15’, which state ‘Violence may be strong but may not dwell on the infliction of pain and injury. Consequently, it was felt that the game is more appropriate at ‘18’.
