Overall, I found "Manhunt" to be a pretty enjoyable stealth game. It has very simple and reliable mechanics, and it's easy to pick up and play. Thus, it manages to be somewhat fun by avoiding a lot of the unsatisfying trial-and-error that accompanies most stealth games (like "Splinter Cell"). The game also throws in some token shooting sequences which aren't as well fleshed out, but also end up being kind of enjoyable as a change of pace, if nothing else.
Manhunt is a great setting for a stealth game. You are a death row inmate, being hunted on a great big movie set by gangters, lunatics, and other scum of the earth. All the while, a sick perverted director talks into your ear and eggs you on. He is constantly badgering you to kill, kill, kill. And when you do, it's not a pretty sight. The game is dripping with atmosphere. This is the most brilliantly atmospheric stealth game that I have played since System Shock 2. It's not really scary so much as disturbing. Especially one chapter that takes place in an old mental institution.
There's basically nothing extraordinary here as far as game mechanics goes. Manhunt has a simple formula that borrows heavily from other stealth games. You hide in shadows, and guards have three stages of alertness: clueless, suspicious, and fully aware. The behavior of the guards is pretty predictable, and the stealth routine is easy to learn. Everything works well here because of the setting. The hunters make for some really good fodder. Generally, they are lazy or just screwed up, which explains why they give up looking for you so soon after you alert them.
The visuals for the game are not spectacular or cutting edge, but they get the job done.

This is probably one of the best stealth based games made of recent years. But it is also one of the most brutal games I have ever played, it has some parts that are hard for even I to watch, which is saying a lot.

The basis of the game is that you are playing a bad man named cash, who was put to death for murder. But it turns out that he wasn't killed, he was put unconscious. When he wakes it turns out that he is being put into a form of a "snuff film". Where he is being filmed by some rich, eccentric, sicko that likes to see people murdered, and is going to make him a film star. You are put into preselected areas with gangs of various types that are trying to kill you, and you can't get out of the level until you either kill all of them or kill enough to open the door. Most of the levels are stealth, but there are some that are more traditional first person shooter apects of shooting and killing all enemies. Including some levels where stealth is tertiary to shooting skills. Unlike most first person shooters though, you never have access to body armor, and can't take many shots at all.

The weapons are more of a personal type. The first being plastic bags, shards of glass, and billyclubs. The first two are one use weapons, you kill someone and it is lost. Some are multi use, like the billy club, baseball bat, crowbar, machete, etc....... When you are doing a stealth kill you can be patient and quiet enough to sneak behind the target and wait until your target sign goes from white, to yellow, to red. The higher the color the more brutal the death and the more bonus points you can get. Creating a sick way to play the game harder. You can face them mano e mano, but this is harder since they are pretty tough and usually armed, and doesn't get you any bonus points.

By this point, it's safe to say that Rockstar Games in general -- and Rockstar North in particular -- will be known for all time as the makers of the hugely popular Grand Theft Auto games. Nothing wrong with that; I happen to love GTA, and I probably always will. But that doesn't mean they can't do something different every once in a while.

And believe me, friend, this is something COMPLETELY different.

James Earl Cash, a death row inmate, is set to be executed...and he is. No, wait; he isn't. He's tranquilized by the corrupt staff and his life bought by a man named Lionel Starkweather, to be the "star" of the latest MANHUNT, a lethal bloodsport/snuff film where Cash must fight to survive against murderous gangs out to kill him on sight. So while it has shades of survival horror games like RESIDENT EVIL, or stealth games like METAL GEAR SOLID, this is a whole different beast. You can't survive a fight against massed numbers; you have to be quick, quiet, and utterly ruthless, and strike from the shadows.

Weapons are like nothing you've ever seen, ranging from the conventional to the brutal to the inconsequential. They're arranged in four color-coded categories. GREEN weapons are completely silent, one-handed affairs, but they're used up after a single use, and they include such everyday items as a plastic bag or a glass shard. YELLOW weapons are more useful as lures; you throw them to draw a hunter into a trap, and they include such simple things as bricks, bottles, or cans. BLUE weapons aren't as quiet as greens, but can be reused, and are more varied; a hand axe, a scythe, a crowbar, handguns, etc. RED weapons are two-handed, and are the most powerful and brutal in the game; metal baseball bats, rifles, you get the idea.
