Product Description

Considering the furore that greeted the release of the first game it’s a genuine surprise to see it get a sequel, especially one as uncompromising as this. However unpleasant the original was though there was no denying it was an excellent game and one of the most original and effective stealth-based titles of recent years. The story in the sequel is at least slightly less disturbing than before, as the snuff movie theme of the first game is ditched in favour of you escaping from a mysterious research facility.

The gameplay is more familiar, as your limited access to heavy weaponry and the large number of enemies out to get you mean that you have to spend much of the time creeping about in the shadows. It gets to the point where you have to shoot out lights to increase the gloom and have to regulate your breathing when an enemy is nearby – to ensure you aren’t spotted. The stealth aspects work just as well as Metal Gear or any of its progeny, the difference here being that hiding isn’t an occasional novelty or plot device but the only way to survive the game.

Of course what Manhunt is most famous for is the violence and that has not been toned down in any way as you use everything from a ball point pen to a plastic bag to perform some of the most gruesome attacks in gaming. There are also new environmental kills, similar to those in THQ’s The Punisher, where you can drown enemies in a toilet or strangle them with telephone cord. It’s not a game for the faint of heart, but for those that can stomach it there’s plenty of gameplay here amongst the gore.

The first manhunt game was far from being a complete masterpiece, but as far as treating adults like adults, and giving them some entertainment aimed directly at their demographic, it was a triumph. From the 70's style, nasty, low-budget, droning, synth sounds to the grainy, video nasty, VHS filters that sporadically clouded the screen so effectively and right down to the seedy underworld scenarios and warriors-esque, themed, street gangs: Finally gaming had reached beyond silly sprays of chunky, Mortal Kombat, blood to real adult entertainment. So naturally we all waited with bated breath in anticipation of the next installment. But something unfortunate happened between Manhunt and Manhunt 2, the censors lost, first their minds then, their spines.
I recently watched a comparison online of uncensored footage from this game and the kills from the original manhunt (Don't know why they haven't torn that video down already) and I have to say that the original was much, much nastier than this, and not just in the gore stakes but also in the realism of the story and overall characterisation. Fair enough the game has gone from serious nastiness to fantastical story telling and cartoonish schlock but there in lies my point - why cut this game and not the first? It's ridiculous hand holding nonsense like this that tells me I can't play what I want to, I am not free to indulge in something darker from time to time, which is just insulting and infuriating and we are being treated like idiots.

You will have heard about the controversy that this game has provoked, and therefore you will know that it is extremely violent and pretty brutal. Let me tell you that even though the executions have been blurred with a high contrast filter, it does not obscure what is going on. You can see pretty much everything, unless you are a dark which case you cant see anyway. Seriously, the game is VERY violent and VERY bloody. The gameplay is exactly like the original, and works extremely well and the new weapons and characters make the experience more fun. Weapons such as the sledgehammer and pliers are new to this game and the pen which is exclusive to the wii version. The motion controls are excellent. They are very intuitive and when you are required to (during an execution) thrust a crowbar into a neck and yank it up and then hack them on the ground with for good measure, it is disturbing but (gulp) feels freat. The movements are sensitive and work unless you do it wrong. Shooting is easy and reminds me of resident evil 4.
Graphics are ok, not brilliant but pretty good. Everything is through a grainy CCTV filter anyway. The sound is incredible, the blood splatterings and screaming, brilliant. And the hunters say some disturbing and funny things to try and fush you out. My only gripe is the AI of the hunters, as sometimes they will turn around loads or climb up a wall and jump down repeatedly. Not very often though. Overall, a great game for wii.
Have fun, especially with the saw!

Manhunt 2 was always going to be controversial and after playing the first one wondered how this would follow up. Thankfully the game is still fun in a sick sort of way and doesn't disappoint too much.

The idea of the game is to try and escape different areas without being caught by the other gangs. To avoid detection you have to move quietly and lurk in the many shadows and then take the bad guys out one by one.

The executions in the game have been heavily censored now, so all you get is a blury red smudge on the screen as you murder your victim in a violent manner. This doesn't really spoil the game and in a way makes it more stylish.

Graphically, the game doesn't look amazing but does have some nice atmospheric locations. Lights flicker in seedy nightclubs and hospitals and light shines through broken roofs in old lofts. All though the effects aren't amazing, it does fit in with the locations perfectly.
The frame-rate is fairly steady, but does dip now and then creating small stutters in the gameplay.

The sound is amazing and also very atmospheric. Police sirens can be heard in the distance, dogs barking and people screaming.. very unearving!

Controls aren't amazing, but do work. The nunchuck and wiimote can be swung in different directions to cause different attacks and seem ok most of the time, but can feel unresponsive occasionally.

So overal, the game is far from perfect, but VERY fun for adults looking for a more mature game for the Wii. The price is very reasonable now, so buy it before it gets banned again!!

I remember the first time I played manhunt 1. The first time I stuck a plastic bag over an enemies head and suffocated him till all the life drained out of him. I didn't know how to feel about what I had just done. Sure, this guy was my enemy, who would have torn me to shreds, given half a chance. But did he deserve to die like that? I didn't think so, but on the other hand, a plastic bag was the only weapon I had available to me. I had no choice but to take him out in such a fashion. After that moment, I figured that this game was going to be just a tad too dark for me, but reluctantly I decided to press on for at least a little while longer. The extreme violence didn't subside. If anything, it got much worse. Smashing heads off with baseball bats, slicing throats with knifves, even cutting heads clean off with machete's, it was all here and sickingly realistic. The weird thing is, as I got further into the game, I actually started to enjoy myself. God knows I didn't want to enjoy performing such vile acts, but I just couldn't help myself. Stalking my victims in the dark before finishing them off in as gruesome a way as possible became enthralling. Sure, part of me felt uncomfortable with how much enjoyment I was getting from the game, but at least I felt SOMETHING. I never felt these complicated emotions before while playing a game, and I liked that. I completed manhunt and it became one of my favourite horror games so naturally I was excited when I heard there would be a sequel. Why am I telling you all this? Because, even though manhunt 2 has a decent story, some scary moments, and a great atmosphere, the violence has been ridiculously censored, to the point where you'll wonder what's the pointin even playing it anymore.Read more ›
