    Shocking for all the right reasons...Simply, it's never been so difficult to keep a Wii-mote still. [Sept 2007, p.79]

    Punchy, cheap and cheerful splatter gaming. [Christmas 2008, p.60]
  3. Manhunt 2, rather hesitant in delivering its ulterior motif, is monstrously violent, extremely gory and smashingly bold when it comes to moral values. Suffered from procrastination along with other external factors, it manages to come to the spot and attract our attention, with much to yearn technically. Yet in terms of controversy, as the game intended when it started, success is the word. It is, so far, the most violent game in Wii line.
  4. For those of us that loved the original, Manhunt 2 is a trip that’s worth taking, even if it’s not nearly as memorable or enjoyable. While I applaud the series for it’s uncompromising take on morality and violence, it’s hard not to notice that recent titles like "Mass Effect" and "BioShock" have covered similar territory in a more mature – and much more enjoyable – fashion.

    The AI doesn't feel as good as the first game, the setting and environments don't feel as menacing, and the story is definitely weaker. That isn't to say that Manhunt 2 isn't a good game, because it is.
  6. Manhunt 2 struggles to break new ground, but will satisfy your blood-thirst and offer some new challenges that will keep you entertained, satisfied and disgusted all at the same time.
  7. The biggest draw for most will be the controls, but while you might enjoy the added effect that mimicking the executions with the remote can bring, I found it a bit tiresome later on, and distracting from the visuals.

    Unfortunately, the story, while engaging, is predictable. [Holiday 2007, p.80]

    Not so much a great game as a gruesomely compelling experience. [Issue#22, p.72]

I mean it has been banned in UK! I would rather play the original over this one at anytime. I don't know what this game on other platforms are like but for this game on the Wii. THIS MAKES ME SICK. Some game mechanics do not even work either. So what do expect!!!!!!!!! This is a waste of my time to write up a review for a very sick game. 1/10. Full Review »

    Ok this game got a bad rap and for what ever reason the kills had to be blurred out. First off I have seen alot worse so not sure why theyOk this game got a bad rap and for what ever reason the kills had to be blurred out. First off I have seen alot worse so not sure why they targeted this one but whatever. This game has some good elements the gaphics for a wii title are not horrible but by no means the best on the wii. The controls are ok but not always the most responsive. I liked the game and it is now a game you can get for under 10 bucks which is probably were it should be priced. I think for all its flaws it is worth taking a look at if your into this type of game. you cab buy or skip this one depending if your into this type of game. Full Review »
