British censors have won the right to fight the UK release of video game Manhunt 2 in the High Court.
A judge accepted the British Board of Film Classification's argument that the game had been approved for release on a misinterpretation of the law.
The game was banned in June but the Video Appeals Committee said the game could be classified and released.
The BBFC said that the VAC had been guilty of "a very serious misdirection of law" on the question of harm.
The judge said: "I have taken into account the high public interest in the possibility of harm to children."
Mr Justice Wyn Williams ruled the Board had an arguable case that should go to a full hearing.
