    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. 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. Collapse

    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 is the enemies, the weapions etc. which means that if you have played it once you won;'t play it again.....However, just to commend the game it does have some good graphics and some nicely done executions..but that is just about it.....

    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]
  2. 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.
