Some Ohio parents say they're heeding advice not to buy the new video game "Manhunt 2."

Child advocates have called it senselessly violent. The game features characters who kill and torture using everything from glass and shovels to a fuse box and a toilet.

At a Toledo GameStop location, where one couple said they would never let their children play the game, even store manager Jesse Sine is bothered by Manhunt 2. He says while it cannot be sold to anyone under 17, he still worries about youngsters getting their hands on one.

The game is rated "mature." Take-Two Interactive Software makes it for Nintendo Wii (wee), Sony PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 2.

Defending the game, Take-Two has said it believes in "freedom of creative expression."
