  1. Sharpen your swords, start pouring the silver and get ready to rock the undead back to their uneasy rests, because if you have even the slightest interest in removing zombie infestations, Hunter: The Reckoning is the game you've been waiting for your entire life.
  2. I would have liked to see the game have a few more levels but there is enough there to keep me entertained.

    Hunter mixes hectic combat with moments of dark humor, creating an intense atmosphere that is quite addictive...The only downside is the length.
  4. 80
    A great visual and auditory package, and an extremely entertaining game to boot.
  5. Definitely a fun game, but it's also a short one. It shouldn't take you more than five hours to go from beginning to end.
  6. The graphics, sound, and game play all do a great job of conveying the mood the game is trying to establish.
  7. Sadly, the result is more Benny Hill than Silent Hill, there's no claustrophobia or tension, it's just hack-shoot-hackshoot- sod-this-where's-Halo. [XGamer]

    I really miss this game. I wish an updated version was released for the new, more powerful gaming consoles. Hunter: The Reckoning, aside fromI really miss this game. I wish an updated version was released for the new, more powerful gaming consoles. Hunter: The Reckoning, aside from having one of the coolest names in gaming history, was nonstop action and entertainment. The developers did a great job drawing the player into the action. By the time you were done playing, you were exhausted, as if you were the one running around killing zombies. Expand
