Although it is a sequel to the first, Manhunt 2 has nothing to do with the plot of the previous game. Instead, it follows Daniel Lamb and Leo Kasper, two ex-members of a mysterious project called...well "The Project." A+ for creativity there. As you progress through the game, you uncover more back story about their involvement and generally what is going on. Without spoiling anything, it follows a relatively twisted story arc, but it's nothing you've never seen before in terms of ideas.
Then again, you didn't become interested in Manhunt 2 for the story. You want to see some gore, and in that regard you will get that. The executions are more varied than in the original Manhunt, now including environmental kills and gun executions not seen before in addition to the 3 levels of standard executions. There also is a bit more variety in weapons this time around, which helps keep things from becoming stale and boring. However, if you thought that the first Manhunt had too much gun-play too early, Manhunt 2 is even worse. Guns become very central to the game about 1/3 in, and it's still as awkward as ever.
One thing that they did for reasons beyond me is that you cannot change the individual keys of the control scheme at all. Instead, you basically choose between having all the keys in a relatively standard setup, or moving things over to the number pad. There also is no controller support, so basically you are fixed into the games way of doing things.Read more ›
The controls are a tad janky, seeing as the developers probably had gamepads in use/mind. Blocking isn't as useful as it should be for multi-target combat, and is a general waste mano-a-mano. Some of the primary attacks are pretty outlandish, the "don't move the mouse" quick-time event is ridiculous and hyper-sensitive to the gentlest breeze over the mouse, and the artificial intelligence is dim-witted and rather predictable.
The story has a few holes, but as it stands is mostly comprehendable to someone not familiar with the Manhunt series. The execution system in this game is viceral, brutal, and in most cases pretty unnerving. The fact that it's uncensored for the PC edition should be a CLEAR indicator that this game is NOT to be neither taken heavily nor played by anyone who does not have a fully developed frontal lobe. Critical thinking skills come in handy, as well as a somewhat twisted sense of humor.
On its own, this game is worth a once-over every now and again to stave off the ol' rage dwelling within, but as stated before, is NOT meant to be played by youngins NOR taken without a grain of salt. Don't let bad graphics and somewhat poor gameplay ruin your "ideal" game!
Well, I'd consider this a must for anyone who's a strong fan of the first Manhunt. Prepare to be disappointed though.
The story is decent - a nice take on MH1's premise. The gameplay isn't as tight as the first, and the executions don't feel as satisfying either. The carnage, however, is all there in its bloody goodness. I'd still recommend this game to fans as it has the spirit of Manhunt, albeit it suffers quite a bit.
The game works just fine on Windows 8. I hope MH3 will soon be made...

Visceral, barbaric,unapologetically gory and dark. This is sums up Manhunt 2 in it's purest form on the pc. This isn't the watered down console disappointment we got at launch. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Aaron
