  • Summary: They just killed Cash. Now, they want to kill him again. America is full of run down, broken rust-belt towns where nobody cares and anything goes. In Carcer City, nothing matters anymore and all that's left are cheap thrills. The ultimate rush is the power to grant life and take it away, for sport. This time James Earl Cash, you are the sport. They gave you your life back. Now, they are going to hunt you down. You awake to the sound of your own panicked breath. You must run, hide and fight to survive. If you can stay alive long enough, you may find out who did this to you. This is a brutal blood sport. [Rockstar] Expand

  1. A subversive parody that cleverly indicts our depraved culture? If it makes you feel better about having a shitload of sadistic fun, sure.
  2. With all of the variety and unlockable content, you'd be hard-pressed to find a game more gut-wrenchingly intense and disturbing as this one. That being said, it makes for one hell of a good time.
  3. The sound quality of Manhunt is surreal, simply because the game seems like a living, breathing entity by itself.
  4. The phenomenal use of sound and the "snuff" executions are exceptional, and the attention to detail in both the environments, the gangs, hell, even the instruction booklet is top notch.
  5. I liked the game sometimes and other times I despised it. Then again, maybe that is what they were shooting for.
  6. A very good game, it's just hidden under a coat of blood and filth. The game engine is good, and the gameplay, graphics and audio are well done. If you can stomach the disturbing images and violence, you'll find a solid stealth/action game.
  7. Manhunt is boring. Cash's standard walking pace is painfully slow, press R1 and his running speed is ridiculously fast. Navigating the game is therefore less than pleasurable and, should you not have anyone to dice up, a tedious experience.

    Smash or trash time, and this game well deserves a perfect score. Sure there is better stealth games out there and better graphics and all that other special crap, but this game didn't need it to pull of a great experience. I love the fact that this game of very,very,very, few can pull off a well deserved mature rating ( I don't know how many other titles try to pull it off and fail to succeed). I am not a pyschopath, i know the difference between reality and virtual reality, but I believe there should be a sequel (pray to the almighty Rockstar) if not more games of its kind.... but again please let there be a sequel.

    This game... Well, It's just great. They took a game that is based on stealth and threw in a freaky plot, and twisted schemes.

    Why should you buy this game? Just to show the world an adult game can be well made and entertaining. GTA3 was fun, but this is scary.

    One of the few great games by Rockstar outside of Grand Theft Auto. The graphics, first off, are done fairly well. The character models all look fairly nice, however, the environments can be pretty boring from time to time. The gameplay is amazing. Think of it as a stealth game, with a sick, disturbing twist. The controls are good, and aren't too hard to learn. Easily one of the most disturbing video games ever devloped. An intense experience, but its not for everyone. Expand

    This can't be game. This is trash. Everything has made with "let's make money with very, very bloody game". Game is cruel, and it is the worst game I remember. Expand
