UK's BBFC has granted Eidos' Reservoir Dogs an 18+ rating (equivalent of the ESRB's M Rating), but the the Association of Chief Police Officers has voiced its total disapproval of the game, due to its violent emotions, especially against members of the police service, and that it encourages to torture, shoot and execute policemen. Earlier this year New Zealand's Office of Film and Literature Classification banned the game because it "encourages the player to perform – and showcases in slow motion – the most extreme forms of violence and brutality for the purpose of entertainment."
