5.0 out of 5 stars Superb effort from Rockstar - even though extremely violent, 22 May 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Manhunt (Xbox) (Video Game)
Rockstar have done a superb effort in this game. Yes, the violence and horror is obvious and its appropriately an 18 rated certificate, but what makes it so effective as a quality game is the stealth element, which is second-to-none, right up there with the Splinter Cells, Metal Gear Solids and Tenchus of the gaming world. And that's one reason why I score it highly - because there's story line and suspense in bucketloads to justify the gratuitous violence. It's not simply about the violence, Rockstar paid attention to ensuring there was a good game underneath which employed the tense, gripping stealth atmosphere, which, for me, easily matches what I consider the best stealth-em up game of its type - Tenchu.

Five stars from me. Graphics are reasonably good too, but overall, the whole game works - very effectively.
