  1. A much better title than its original, and even though we got through it, we have already begun our second round to build up our characters and unlock all the goodies the game has to offer.
  2. A pretty slick twitch game overall. Multiplayer is fun, slaughtering demons is a great way to unwind from a rough day at the office, and the atmosphere and effects are well done.
  3. A simplistic isometric hack n' slash game that plays like a blood soaked version of "Gauntlet." By no means a revolutionary game, just one that knows what players want. [Nov 2003, p.168]

    Slick, detailed visuals are marred by inane camera work, and while the creature, explosion, and limb-whacking sound effects are all boffo, developer High Voltage should have jettisoned the dance beats and synthetic guitar strains for something more along the lines of Slayer.
  5. Xbox Live support is limited to downloadable content, not the needed multiplayer action, but it's great fun while it lasts. [Nov 2003, p.74]
  6. Like the other Hunter games, features a limp sound track, silly dialog, and giant swarms of monsters. It's also really meant to be played multiplayer; the person playing by themselves is likely to end up frustrated by the amount of baddies and the punishing difficulty of boss battles.
  7. Admittedly, if you liked the first game, then your going to love this to bits - but it'll be a bit boring for your average gamer.

    Another sleeper hit. I wish this game gets more recognition. It's literally a blast to play with a group of people.

    Have to say, alone it is a solid 7, not much fun. But with a friend or to it gets where it belongs. Graphics are great, monster look awesome, many playable charecters(more than the which are in the beginning) and controls work perfectly. I can not make a single one badword of this game when you play it with your friend, that is what this game needs. We hope whitewolf will publish some extra material via Xbox Live(more levels maybe?). And you can play the game through many times with your saved hunter, and keep up boosting those xp lvls. GREAT FUN ! I bought it for 25euros(new) and I can not see why I should not have bought it, it just is great. Expand
