  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 great mix of what gamers loved about the original and some welcomed upgrades that don’t detract from the experience.
  3. While the game is great as a single player experience, this one was meant to be played with a group of friends who enjoy a marathon of good old-fashioned slaughter.
  4. 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.
  5. If you missed the original "Hunter: The Reckoning" because you just purchased your Xbox, then you have a chance to see what made the original so good. The only thing that really for me takes some of the replayability off this game is a lack of online gameplay.

    It's an upgrade over the original, but I'm not sure if it's enough of a boost to justify another purchase if you're not a true diehard fan of Hunter the Reckoning. The game does what it set out to do; it just wasn't trying to do too much more than the original.

    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]
  8. This isn't a game for one person stuck in their basement with a busted water pipe. This is pure four-player action baby!
  9. The procedure for awarding continues is definitely far too liberal and though the combo system has been greatly improved, the controls still need to be simplified to make them more practical.

    It's certainly not revolutionary, but it's a simple, fun and very likeable game. It's perfect for dorm rooms or back-from-the-pub entertainment, as the controls don't take long to grasp and the gameplay isn't exactly rocket science.

    The beauty is in the execution. They've elevated the experience with better production values and a more integrated story, a seemingly simple tweak that goes a long way in a genre plagued by repetition. [Oct 2003, p.69]

    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, 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. Full Review »

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