Manhunt Gameplay Movie 3

  1. I have to tip my hat to the PC version for the first time in a long time. The gameplay and controls are just the way they should be.
  2. The computer AI is also much improved over the console version. The hunters can be quite cunning at times. Just when you think you’ve gotten away from a group, they split up and outflank you.

    Now that the game is on Xbox and PC, Manhunt has lost a little bit of its shine, a little bit of its luster. Time certainly has something to do with that, the lackluster ending is a disappointment, and while there is much to admire about Manhunt's stealthy debut, the stealth itself isn't as deep as it could have been. It's still a high-quality game.
  4. That said it creates a tense and chilling experience like no other videogame we’ve played, which certainly provides the main allure for the game.

    Even while telling myself that I should be revolted - especially since Cash is a thoroughly unsympathetic protagonist - I finished the 15-hour game in three sittings. [July 2004, p.72]
  6. Its simplistic arcade gameplay simply doesn’t cut the mustard on the birthplace of stealth gaming, and its only lasting effect will be a strange desire for the involving, story-driven gameplay of the king: "Thief."

    It's incredibly hard and repetitive, and the stealth gaming is incredibly simple. [Aug 2004, p.59]

    It makes you play to the end,although it becomes boring at the end. I think if they could work more on the story it could be the best game It makes you play to the end,although it becomes boring at the end. I think if they could work more on the story it could be the best game that ever made. it lacks in characters, and is mainly dependent on killing scenes. after the level that cash ran away, we did'nt hear much about the DIRECTOR until the end. i think he could continue talking more to Cash (persuading him to stop). and ramirez execution could be more planned. overally,It was a NEW horror Game.

    A well-produced game, but a dull one. The grainy, cheap cinematic effect is good, the environments are suitably bleak, and the voice-acting A well-produced game, but a dull one. The grainy, cheap cinematic effect is good, the environments are suitably bleak, and the voice-acting and camera controls are slick, but Manhunt is overall immensely shallow. Once the novelty of the gratuitous and unnecessarily-indulgent violence wears off, it's very easy to get bored. Fighting involves either sneaking up behind people and executing them, or just clicking the mouse buttons and moving around a bit until one of you runs out of health. Hand to hand combat is dire and repetitive, and even gun combat later on is uninspiring. I can't help but feel that, unlike the GTA games, the only thing pushing sales of Manhunt is the deliberate, self-serving and somewhat cynical controversy that it has so obviously set out to exploit. One to miss. Expand
