Manhunt 2 is a very gory and violent game and should only be played for ages 18 and over.
The story line can be a little confusing first off but gets better as the game unfolds.
When first playing the game controls were very hard to get used to but the help features during the game really helped me get used to them in the long run.
The graphics are great and there are so many ways to execute your enemies with environmental kills and weapon attacks.
There are so many levels to get into and i really like the commentary from the characters wingman which was pretty hilarious.
Overall the game is very easy to pick up and play and there are so many choices of weapons to use and the chracters are very good in terms of acting and moving in a life like way. It is a very cheap game to buy but does not have the long life factor as the game ends very quickly which was a le down.
Dreadful game. I played one level of it and never played it again. Not because of the violence but because of the terrible control scheme. It spoiled the fun for me. I was anticipating this one due to the hype over it but that was probably due to the controversy surrounding the violence in it, not how good or bad the actual game was. Because it seemed bad to me...at least on the Wii anyway.
If they made the control scheme more easier to use then it would have been much more fun so it just goes to show that with the Wii, especially with the Wii, that it's very important to get the control scheme right and easy to use...this was just frustrating.
The graphics and sound on the game were pretty pleasing on the Wii and I bet it's a really good game on other consoles but I would advising purchasing the game for this console.
Such a shame.
This game is an 18 so it is only for adults and it really shows when playing the game as it features frequent swearing and gore. The graphics aren't the best and as mentioned before it seems to be over all too soon, however it is a really good game and worth a go. If you are familiar with Rockstar you will know that they are they guys behind the Grand Theft Auto franchise and if you have ever played any of those you will know that they are also meant for the adult market, this game however is completely different to the gta titles.
You start off in an asylum and have to escape with fellow inmate Leo, you remember nothing at all and just keep having flashbacks. While trying to figure things out you are being hunted down by The Pickman Project who will stop at nothing at hunting you and Leo down to stop the truth about everything that has happened getting out.
I have been playing manhunt now for a least a month and have managed to get quite far in the game. The game is an 18 and therefore for adults only. You get to play this character who has been involved with a strange science project. The first thing you have to do is get out of a building that you were locked up in. All you have is a shard of glass to fend off attackers. Manhunt 2 is all about stealth, attacking enemies from behind and carrying out a very violent kill. With the WII version you can act out the movements and if your discovered then you can use the nun chuck and controller like your fists. Later stages of the game you get weapons to use against your enemies. This game is definitely a favorite of mine and I will be playing it till I complete it.
Manhunt 2 is a bit of a difficult game to review for. On one hand, the gameplay is average, the graphics are absolutely dire, the plot isn't the greatest, and it's all over a bit too soon. On the other, I absolutely loved it. And really, what's more important? Well, it's really up to you to make that assessment. If you've played the original Manhunt, then you can pretty much write a '2' on the box and play through it again, because this is really just more of the same. If you liked the first one, you will like this. If you didn't, then this will not change your mind.
The game plays out from a third person perspective, and you have many instruments at your disposal to help you survive the experience, which is pretty much whatever you see lying around - bricks, syringes, knives, crowbars, fire axes, the works. As the game is loosely stealth based, the idea is to hide in the shadows, stalk your enemy for a while, and then embed whatever implement you have found into the back of his head. The longer you stalk him, the more violent the kill, but they're all pretty satisfying, if that's your bag (and if it's not, then really, why are you considering this game?). Stealth really is the name of the game, because your character is pretty weak and will not last long in a fight, so if he gets seen, the best thing is to run away and find somewhere to hide before getting back to the relentless bludgeonings.
As I mentioned earlier, the graphics are absolutely dire, but I supose it was built with the PSP in mind, and the violent executions have been toned down somewhat to justify the games release, that is, they have a kind of filter on that is not entirely dissimilar to attempting to watch... ahem... late night films on a scrambled channel. If you can put niggles like this aside then it's definately a fun experience, if not the deepest you'll ever find.
This game is intended for adults only as it has a very high gore content. The game consists of you playing as a guy escaping from a mental institue where you were locked up and experimented on and trying to get your revenge and escape too. Now the control scheme in this game is awesome however the probelem is that you may find it a tad to violent for your kids or whoever you want this for.
In order to escape in this game you are basically brutally killing everyone you come into contact with with instruments such as syringes, knives, maces, baseball bats, clubs and then on toilet seats etc. The gameplay is really good though.
To kill people you will find that you have 3 intensities of kill from a simple stab to a very brutal kill, however these are kinda fuzzed out on screen to you cant really see much of them, however it is still possible to make you the sick kills the game has in it.
Considering the furore that greeted the release of the first game its 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.
