Manhunt is controversial third-person perspective stealth action game where you play a death row inmate James Earl Cash, who has got a date with the needle. But instead of dying, someone by the name of Starkweather has given Cash a "second chance". Do you wonder why? Well, Lionel Starkweather is a snuff film producer who depends on Cash (you) to be his latest star as he's basically directing you in his own personal *snuff film. Basically Cash is marked for death by several gangs that Starkweather hires to hunt him down. So, Cash is forced to stab, suffocate, garrote, and pummel characters to death. Everyone in Manhunt wants to kill you. And the objective for Cash (you) is to simply survive!

*What is snuff film? A snuff film is a film, sometimes pornographic, that depicts how real people are dying on camera for no other reason than to thrill a viewing public. Needless to say it's pretty crazy, even in the game.

The gameplay requires you to use stealth. Trying you play the game as a standard action shooter will get Cash real dead really fast in the beginning. The most effective way of killing those that want to kill you is to sneak up behind them and attack at the last possible moment - if you time it right you'll trigger a small cutscene of Cash committing the murder (with deliberately shocking detail) and you won't have to engage in combat. The longer you hold down the action button, the more gruesome the death. Yes, this is all very gory, grisly, and absolutely not for kids or anyone with a weak stomach :) If you time it wrong then you'll have to engage in face to face combat, which means that you're going to get hurt and more often than not killed.

Of course Manhunt isn't the first stealth game that puts you in the role of a murderer, there's Hitman series and others. The main difference between Hitman and Manhunt is that Hitman's Agent 47 uses refined weapons of destruction that get the job done as quickly and as effectively as possible whereas Cash has to make use of crude weapons such as a plastic bag, a glass shard, a baseball bat and even cleaver. Of course the methods that Cash has to employ do not provide instantaneous death and the victims will suffer distress in the process.

Manhunt features 24 levels (20 levels + 4 bonus levels), each level comprises three to four parts. Even the level select provides the following advice for playing: "to truly experience Manhunt, turn off the lights, close the blinds, lock the doors, AND GO KILL SOMEONE!" And really, I can confirm this. The best time to play Manhunt is in the middle of the night when it's nice and dark.

Is Manhunt any fun? The answer is a definite YES. Manhunt thrives on stealth and patience, so you have to rather walk than run and hide in the shadows as often as possible. Also you will end up playing some sections over and over again (and suffering through some of the same cut-scenes over and over again), so be prepared for lots of reloads.

Of course, it takes awhile to get into Manhunt, with many people being put off by the initial repetition, lack of weapons (pistols, shotguns, submachine guns, assault rifles, and even a nailgun come into play later on in the game), and slow progress. I recommend you to be patient, because the game certainly begins to grow on you the more you play and progress within the game.

Overall, Manhunt isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea. As usually, some gamers will love it and others will hate it. But if you're a fan of stealth games and looking for something slightly different then Manhunt could be good choice for you!

Fredposted - May, 15 2004 - 07:44

::posted - May, 15 2004 - 10:00
yea like the rest, its an ok game, great killing ppl, funny running from a bunch of deads, but the repetition is tiresome.. it need some hands on tekken type holds like King, to kill people in chains..

FX5900posted - May, 15 2004 - 10:24
Sounds like Quake 4.

kill themposted - May, 15 2004 - 12:21
I loved the ending in this game with the chain saw when you cut open the guy,s stomech and his guts come spilling out and he try's to put them back in then he james the chain saw in is face awesome stuff.

MaMutHposted - May, 15 2004 - 15:44
This game is great !!! I love this game... With 3 levels of killing its not so boring... Play it then speak... :) I recommend this game and my note is 9/10.

sadsaposted - May, 15 2004 - 16:25
where can i download this game demo or full

fdposted - May, 15 2004 - 17:21
I found this to be the most boring game I've played in the last 5 years. If you like stealth killing games, you can pull off the same effect with Splinter Cell.

xxxxposted - May, 15 2004 - 20:43
well from what it sounds like it sounds like an ok enough game to download. if it's worth the download i'll go and buy it seeing how there is no demo.

Ted Bunnyposted - May, 15 2004 - 22:33
It was an instant love-at-first-sight and a huge hit on the Playstation 2 console system but than I dunno how will it play on the PC.

Hjarryposted - May, 16 2004 - 06:41
Boring. Flat. Repetitive. Minor points for atmosphere here and there, but not enough to make it even of passing interest.

asdposted - May, 16 2004 - 09:32
this game isnt similar to hitman, thief

great game, but too short - loved it, simply sick hehe 8.5 out of 10 is perfect rating btw...

Viper357posted - May, 16 2004 - 19:24
Quite good game... but it gets boring rather quickly. :( If only it had doom3 graphics n stuff.... it would have been a lot more scary and interesting. :)

Quincyposted - May, 16 2004 - 21:09
Awesome game. Starts off slow, but picks up steam around mission 7 and never lets go. Not for the faint of heart or those that find offense in the material.

::posted - May, 17 2004 - 05:47
i think console game creators should stop insult PC gamers, and make their conversions with much more improvements.

adsfposted - May, 17 2004 - 08:08
you guys piss and moan about repedetiveness but isn't that what all games are like fps stealth etc if you think about it and to :: look at the muddy lo res models and textures of the ps2 compared to the xbox/pc version and tell me thats not an improvement including the draw distance. as for insulting pc gammers i think that happened long ago back in '98 pc games are dead and unoriginal 3/4 of the market are fps the other half is a mix of rpg/rts crap so stop the moaning about insults and repeditiveness fucktards

mikronposted - May, 17 2004 - 12:50
Get extremely boring quickly, dumb, blind and deaf opponents (You can 'sneak' in front of them, they won't see you (!) :(.

JTposted - Aug, 28 2004 - 12:08
I love violence. I love stealth. This is like living the life of Jason.. walking around quietly killing people. Except people are't after you in those movies. So far I've just seen a gameplay video but I'm likin it. As for the rest of you, shut your mouth

Paulposted - Sep, 09 2004 - 21:33
This game started off a bit slow, but once into it I could not put it down. Other then the slow start, I would give this game a 10 out of 10!

erik callesposted - Sep, 16 2004 - 17:58
manhunt is a great game, all i know is that if you can shove a chainsaw through a guys stomach or use a head to throw to make noise or stab a mans eyes out with a glass shard. it sounds lie a gorefest of fun to me Comments from lucas - lucas@the.internet posted - 06:56 AM EDT - May,18 2004 >Only idiots may like this violent, stupid game.

cashposted - Sep, 17 2004 - 19:17
why fuck don't you guys like this game anyway.tell me,who the hell has the balls to play this game at night without anybody around.these people have tried something new out here.i'm not telling anything about hitman or splinter cell cos i'm a big fan of them myself.but people,they've given us something new man and learn to appreciate new stuff.the background score and the music is awesome nad admit it guys it's fucking scary.three cheers to guys rock.i'm hoping that gta san andreas is as cool as gta vice city.and once again,manhunt's the coolest new thing around.

Manhunt kicks ass and it is non -stop brutality and gore, witha cool storyline and amazing enimies( DEFINETLY PIGGSY and THE SMILEYS), and the veriety of different weapons and EXICUTIONS make Manhunt one of the most bone- chrunchingly gorey games on the market....... anyone who dissagrees needs a severe sickle to the ball bag.
