    Right, I don't know about you guys, but my parents are strict, and usually don't allow me to play 18s. Mega-crap, I know, but what can I do?

    Basically, I have been looking into this new call of duty, and I am unsure what to think.

    I'm sure that most of you (in the UK) know that PEGI won the game ratings war, meaning that BBFC don't rate games anymore, yet I'm seeing "18" BBFC ratings on previews for this game.

    (For those who don't know) This is a PEGI logo:

    And this is a BBFC Logo:

    Apparently PEGI only rated it "16" which would mean I could get it, but if BBFC Rate it "18", I can't buy it. And BBFC aren't supposed to be rating games anymore so I haven't a clue whether I can buy it or not.

    Anyone know anything about this?

    Fair enough, just wondered if anyone was the wiser about this.

    Sorry, I didn't want to seem like an asshole, but I don't think many people would know about this.
    Anyways, when did PEGI win the game ratings war?
    Maybe those MW2 previews were made before PEGI won, so they put BBFC on them

    It's estimated to be an 18.... Although it's not any more gorier than MW1.. Which was a 16+ (PEGI) When I hear, I'll post here.
