|Game Name:||Manhunt||Rating:||M - Mature|
|Publisher:||Rockstar Games||Release Year:||2003|
Rockstar North's first game after Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is billed as an "urban horror" title that has players being hunted for the sole entertainment of a wealthy madman. Following a storyline that draws similarities from such films as The Warriors, Hard Target, and The Running Man, Manhunt casts players in the role of James Earl Cash, a man unwittingly snatched from death row to participate in a twisted game of survival. As in the developer's previous two outings on PlayStation 2, players find themselves exploring a seedy, dark city from a third-person perspective, but that's where the similarities end. The locales, which include sewers, a prison, shopping mall, factory, junkyard, and more, are all abandoned and in various states of decay.
Gangs with such names as The Smileys, The Hoods, The Skins, and The Innocents are being paid to rub out James Earl Cash, preferably in as gruesome a manner as possible, while being filmed from a series of hidden closed-circuit cameras littered throughout each locale. In order to stay alive, Cash must carefully stay out of view and make as little sound as possible. As in titles like Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, hiding in shadows is a key element of the game, where players can avoid detection simply by kneeling behind trash cans, boxes, and other objects within the environment. Cash can also peek around corners and throw items such as bricks, glass, and more to distract enemies.
Sound also plays an important role in Manhunt. An onscreen indicator measures the decibel level of each action players make, whether it's running, walking, firing a gun, or smashing a window. If the character is too loud, gang members will quickly track him down and make life more difficult. Fortunately for players, the sound of enemies is also tracked via radar, which helps isolate threats based on their movement; once they stop making noise, however, players are on their own. Each gang employs different tactics to snuff out players: some will wait in the shadows, while others use heavy artillery. Players can fight back with hand-to-hand moves, guns, or perform stealth kills using such items as meat cleavers, plastic bags, and hammers to slice, suffocate, and bludgeon enemies.

Manhunt 2 (Playstation 2)
Gameplay: 7.5 The very first time you jump out of the shadows to smash a goon’s head in with a rusty metal pipe to the very last time you suffocate a gang member with a plastic bag the actions in this game just don’t get old no matter how many times you try it. The game’s story will take Daniel Lamb through various locales that require a stealthy hand and a strong stomach. Graphics: 8.2 While the game has its share of clipping problems, the game’s visual style is just wonderfully demented and fits the game’s theme just right. Even the executions look gritty and insane, like watching an old snuff film on an old film roll. Sound: 8.0 The creepy atmospheric sounds will not fail to creep any gamer out and listening to Daniel question his sanity as voice from his past fill his ears is just chilling. The voice acting is handled well but be warned that the game is filled with profanity from beginning to end. Difficulty: Medium The game is quite unforgiving if you don’t keep stealth in mind and you can’t simply rush out and attack multiple enemies expecting to win. This is a game that rewards stealth executions and keeping in the shadows. Concept: 7.0 Following Daniel Lamb as he bludgeons, decapitates and suffocates any Project militia or the many psychotics that are hunting him is actually quite enjoyable and even more so when the main protagonist is not quite right in the head. The story is interesting and there is more than one ending. You can also use your PS2 headset to catch your victims’ attention. Overall: 7.5 While it’s not as utterly disturbing as it was meant to be, Manhunt 2 is a gritty sequel that is still shockingly ultra violent but in a surprisingly good way. Like the original, it’s a mature-minded game that blends stealth action with an almost cartoon-like quality to the murderous mayhem and with an interesting story this is a title gamers will want to see to the very bloody end. It’s a good game; it’s just not as brutal or fresh as the original.
This game is brutal and not for those who have a weak disposition and definitely not for kids. This game is rated M for Mature for good reason. You are James Earl Cash, who has woken up to find that your death sentence hasn't really been carried out. You were given a tranquilizer under the command of the sick and perverted director Starkweather. He has given you a second chance, but under one condition: You become the leading man in his snuff film. It's kill or be killed in Starkweather's sadistic game and you must fight to survive. You hunt, sneak, and kill your way through a variety of different gangs under the ever watchful eye of Starkweather. You gain access to an array of weapons ranging from a plastic bag to a shotgun, and even a sniper rifle. The gameplay is fairly linear in contrast to the open worlds that Rockstar usually produces in their games, but that's not to say that it isn't done very well, breaking up stealth sections with sections of intense shooting action. This definitely helps keep the game fresh along with the level designs. In the stealth levels, you sneak up behind some unsuspecting guy and take him out with any weapon. You can perform three different types of attacks from standard, violent, and gruesome and the shooting sections are pretty much standard shoot and kill everything that moves. The graphics are really good for 2003, on par with that of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, but everything feels dark, gritty, and nasty, the way you would imagine an actual snuff film would look. It definitely helps set the eerie atmosphere that Rockstar was hoping to achieve with this game. All in all, the game is what you're looking for if you're into horror and stealth games, but it is also very challenging. There are several sections in this game where you will want to break your controller, but the game is never cheap. Every time you die, it's because you made some kind of mistake. A big part of the challenge that this game provides is the fact that the game forces you to be a more strategic player rather than upgrading your weapons, health, and what not. The game certainly is playable, but be prepared for a lot of controller throwing and teeth grindingly difficult gameplay. This game earns a 4/5. I also want to stress again that this game is rated M for Mature and for good reason. Only players 17 or older should be playing this game.
all white and fat and full of head juice
i got this game on ebay around this time last year i only recently beat it, with manhunt 2 being the motivation to conquer this masterpiece from the get-go, you can tell you're in for something different. you see this man, james earl cash, headed to the needle. all of a sudden, you wake up, alive... with a voice speaking to you through the loudspeaker in the room. you'll grow to despise this voice. the man in the speaker is mr starkweather, the asshole who decided to give you your life back only to try and take it away again, playing a twisted game of cat & mouse. you're about to embark on one of the most f&*!ed up gaming voyages in the history of gaming. the controls are dead on, as is to be expected when dealing with rockstar. the graphics are terrific, with birds flying, flies buzzing around lights, OH! and the lighting effects! oooooooohhhhh just brilliant. lighting plays a biiiig part in this game, as you'll need shadows to survive. you can either stalk from the dark, or use the direct approach (which i wouldnt recommend, as these guys are br00tal). personally, i LOVE stalking people in the shadows.. maybe a little too much :D *tap tap* "what was that?!" thats right little fly... come to me.. the sound is quite good, as it compliments the gruesome & creepy environments very well. and the hunters dialog will push your buttons at times, and other times have you rolling on the floor laughing. sound also plays a large role in this game. you have to be constantly aware of the sounds you make, as they will alert hunters to your location. you can tap on the wall in the shadows to lure them close, but if you make too much noise they'll find you. now... on to the weapons. you'll be taking them out with everything from plastic bags and glass shards to machetes and assault rifles. my favorite would probably be the machete or the crowbar, as they make for some totally gore-iffic executions. to sum it up, this is not a game for the kiddies. i'd recommend this to anyone mature enough to play it.. if you like stealthy action with a messed up undertone with gore aplenty, by all means pick this game up. two bongs WAYYYYYYYYYYyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy up!!!
Good game & it really is a Manhunt like the title says :] Great price!
Interesting story. Creepy beginning especially since it tells you to turn off the lights & lock your doors! haha :] Pretty good game. Just started playing it during a storm & got a little creeped out. It's difficult when you start fighting someone to beat them, but if you sneak up & kill them with a plastic bag or glass shard it's easy. Took me a few tries to get it down. When I saw about 5 or 6 people hanging from ropes I was like wth have I gotten myself into! Good game!
Manhunt for PS2--A Rockstar Game
I think Manhunt for the PS2 is excellent because it's a very challenging and twisted game. Manhunt is a take on the stealth genre but with a twist since there is a lot of blood and guts, fighting and executions. If you liked GTA San Andreas, you will probably like Manhunt. It's got a very gritty atmosphere and the tension builds with every moment. Plus, the story is very unique and will keep you on the edge of your seat. I believe Manhunt for the PS2 has very cinematic qualities. In some ways, this game reminds me of the Saw movies because there is someone in control of your actions and your job is to kill before you get killed. The story begins with James Earl Cash being led to the electric chair. Suddenly, Mr. Starkweather makes a deal with you where you will be freed from death row if you participate in his "snuff film." There is definitely a learning curve because you have to sneak up behind various gang members who are after you and perform executions with various weapons. It's a violent game, but if you've played other Rockstar games you'll be used to it and enjoy it. Overall, I give Manhunt for the PS2 a 90 out of 100. Manhunt is rated MA for mature so I do not recommend this game to anyone under 17 years old.
