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!!
