    This game got boring very quickly. It boils down to: Hide in the shadows, make noise, enemy investigates, kill him. Now do this over and over. The levels all look the same. You do ocasionally get different weapons, but there's no strategy or skill here. As for the violence, most of my favorite games are M rated, but this game becomes disgusting and old very quickly.

    Manhunt is obviously a well thought out, complex survival game. But tedious repetition and limited replay value detract from the experience. The weapon system is often frustrating but there are many creative aspects to the game which should not be overlooked. Manhunt would be worth a rental except the game is too difficult to pick up and play for a few hours, but too boring to be worth owning.

  1. If you manage to look past the extreme gore and violence overkill, there’s a pretty good game hidden away in there.
  2. But while it does output a far greater degree of detail than the open spaces of GTA can afford, at no stage does it get anywhere near matching the accomplished environments of, say, "Splinter Cell," and its almost complete lack of narrative gives the proceedings a completely hollow feel to them.

    A stealth game that dramatically overstays its welcome. [July 2004, p.86]
