    El mundo tal y como te lo presenta esta segunda entrega sigue siendo igual de macabro, oscuro y retorcido, de la misma forma que nuestro mundo, y ese es el punto. Esta entrega te sumerge en las partes más oscuras de un mundo repleto de morbosidad y de violencia y te hace participe de ella. Pero tiene también otro punto.
    ¿Vale la pena recobrar lo más deseas si tú ante sus ojos eres la cosa

    Ohhhh man this game is real badass. You are massive murder that is looking for someone who is special to the character you play as. The game has the sounds of when picking up weapons or health packs, etc as in GTA III. The graphics look so darn classically awesome. Rockstar out did themselves with this I think. Some of the mission's take you to some disturbing places.

    Only thing I can

    Only thing I can think of is it's a true AO (adult only) rated. Other games like GTA are worse, you would think but that is wrong. GTA has a more funfill and less disturbing story. GTA is like opening a box of you're favorite cereal in the morning and enjoying it, not because you can steal people's vehicles, run over people or create a homicide but because it is an open world and the story isn't all about needing to kill everyone you come across but you do it with a different feeling, like a joke. In Manhunt 2, everything looks and feels serious, more than in GTA because you are told to kill, kill, kill or stab, stab, stab where in GTA, totally different.

    Rockstar I give you 10/10 for this.

    A stylish and demented torture porn flick. If "Manhunt 2" was a movie, it would've been described as such. It also would've been filmed by "Hostel" director Eli Roth. This sequel to the controversial "Manhunt" was not made by the original creators, and it shows. It feels very much like a budget title. A direct-to-video sequel, if you will.

A direct-to-video sequel, if you will. Nevertheless, the makers have stayed true to the original concept while making it even more revolting. In fact, Rockstar Games had to edit down the violence to earn an M rating. Having seen the uncut version, I can certainly agree with the original Adults Only rating. Like the original, this is a sick and twisted stealth game (with more guns) that pays homage to American horror flicks. While the first game referenced "The Most Dangerous Game", part II is a direct relative of "The Manchurian Candidate" and even pays tribute to Roth's "Hostel". Players use crossbows, hand guns and manhole covers to massacre the creepy gang members that stand in their way. Although not as good as the first, it still delivers sick entertainment like any low-budget slasher flick. 7.5 out of 10. Expand

    I lately played manhunt 2 and I was surprised to see that it is a game from the same ompany that bought us the outstanding GTA series. In short the game has little if you compare it with the games that are coming out nowadays... It is verys hort, has an exceptinoally dumb AI and is so linear that it even puts games like resident evil series to shame..I mean everything is just where it isI lately played manhunt 2 and I was surprised to see that it is a game from the same ompany that bought us the outstanding GTA series.

    A game that ultimately falls short of its goal, and has to settle for being a watered down, restrictive, ultra violent version of Grand Theft Auto 3 with poor camera angles.

    It's all been done and by today's standards it's just plain ugly. Manhunt covered the general gist of the genre and Manhunt 2 does not change or update the formula. They have added new environmental kills but border lines on just sad and only freaks and ignorant children will enjoy it.

Manhunt covered the general gist of the genre and Manhunt 2 does not change or update the formula. They have added new environmental kills but border lines on just sad and only freaks and ignorant children will enjoy it. The game runs on sheer blood factor forgetting about gameplay, controls and even atmosphere. Game controls like a brick, so stiff and clunky. Gameplay, is basically non existent if you don't enjoy pointless killings and graphics are just bad. Flat, gritty, smudged, pixelated and hard on the eyes. This game is a bumpy ride and not one to die for. Expand

    Manhunt 2 offers heaps of grisly and depraved action, and we would have heartily recommended it to fans of the franchise. [Issue#155, p.76]

    There's more to this than controversy. Intelligent, demanding brains, patience...and a strong stomach. [Sept 2007, p.76]
  3. It's hardly the pinnacle of stealth games - the enemies are dumb, and there's not much to do aside from sneaking and killing - but if you're in the mood for something creepy and horrific that'll leave you feeling a little dirty, Manhunt 2's still-shocking murders and eerie, is-it-real-or-am-I-just-insane storyline won't disappoint.
