Product Description

Use cunning and skill to evade hired killers while searching for the identity of the man who has made you his pawn.

From the Manufacturer

They just killed Cash. Now, they want to kill him again. America is full of run down, broken rust-belt towns where nobody cares and anything goes. In Manhunt's Carcer City, nothing matters anymore and all that's left are cheap thrills. The ultimate rush is the power to grant life and take it away, for sport. This time, James Earl Cash, you are the sport. They gave you your life back. Now, they are going to hunt you down. You awake to the sound of your own panicked breath. You must run, hide, and fight to survive. If you can stay alive long enough, you may find out who did this to you. This is a brutal blood sport.

Continuing in Rockstar North's tradition of world-class gameplay with high production values and sardonic humor, Manhunt explores the depths of human depravity in a vicious, sadistic tale of urban horror.

I've seen far too many reviews of this game (and others) by people who played it for two days, got 1/10 the way into it, and felt that qualified them to write a review. It doesn't. Especially for a game like this.
First of all, and this must come right up front, this is *not* a game for children, or even teens. The game is rated for 17 year-olds and above. That might even be young. This is by far the most graphically violent and grotesque game ever , and it will gradually desensitize you from the first to the last level, until it feels perfectly normal to gut someone and hollow out their head with a chainsaw. Absolutely not for anyone under 17. Furthermore, later in Manhunt you will be killing cops - the one area of the game where I felt truly uneasy - so again, no kids.
The Story
Those people at Rockstar are disturbed if nothing else. From the makers of Grand Theft Auto comes Manhunt, a game that makes the aforementioned series look as tame as Super Mario Cart. You are Cash, a murderer on death row who receives a lethal injection. But something unexpected happens - you wake up, fully alive, in a strange place. You begin receiving messages from a strange voice in your ear, from a man named Starkweather - the voice of Brian Cox. Cox is an actor you would recognize if you saw him - the head trooper in Super Troopers, he was the father of the girl in "The Ring" - and he lends a large amount of credibility to the game.
You soon find out that Starkweather is a snuff film director. Snuff films are more commonly associated with hardcore pornography, but technically a snuff film is any movie where people die - I mean *really* die. Starkweather forces Cash - you - to act in these films in order to stay alive.

How do you like your kills? Pick one - Extra Bloody Violent and Gory - Cranium Splitting Gut Spilling and Ripping - or how about just plain old Neck Breaking followed by Baseball Bat Swinging Decapitation? For what its worth, Manhunt is easily the most depraved and violent video game ever to be released on the general publics computer store shelves and who better to bring it to us that the developers of Grand Theft Auto.
The story is a simple one. You play a guy called Cash who has cheated a state execution because of a guy called the director (starkweather) who wants to see you hunted on the streets of Carson city by gangs of deranged hoodlums who he has hired to track you down for a live snuff film he is making. He directs you to murder the hoods as he films your every move. You better get violent quick if you want to make it out alive!
I have played and finished the game in three days. It was worth every minute! First of all let us address some issues just to get everything into perspective. Manhunt is a far cry from the terrible State of Emergency also released by Rockstar. The graphics are certainly not Silent Hill 3 or Metal Gear Solid 2, but they are better than Grand Theft Auto: Vice City - but not by much. However the character moves are certainly superior to Vice City in 3rd person mode but the button bashing moves are not a whole pile different................. but this is NOT a button bashing game! Many people will hate this game if they do not take the time to actually play along with the stealth involved in the games architecture. If you only go for button bashing then you will only end up playing a fraction of what this great game has to offer.
If you think that Manhunt is just a bloodier version of the street brawls in Vice City then you will be mistaken.

The first I heard of this game was when I read that it had been banned in New Zealand. I figured so what - I'm no a big fan of games anyway? Most games don't hold my attentional span for me to complete them the whole way through. Manhunt is different. Firstly, don't fall for the whole "it's a stealth game" arguement. It's not a game that can be clearly placed into a single category, except maybe Survival Horror. By now you may have heard that the AI of enemies is a little weak. I don't agree in total with this arguement. Some times Enemies can't see you when they should be able to, but believe me, mastering this game isn't easy.
The story revolves around James Earl Cash who gets the death penalty (for what - is never told) but instead of a leathal injection he is given a strong sedative. He awakens to find that he has been appropirated by once famed director, Lionel Starkweather, to "star" in a series of snuff films. Each film (read: level) sees Cash pitted against different opponents (gangs) and situations. The director priases and taunts depending on the succes, speed and brutality of your killings. When you perform executions you are treated to a films' eye view of your exploits (IE cut scenes). There is a definant story here involving your characters family members, and other famed killers such as "Pigsy" a violent, semi-retarded killer in an outfit. The scenes take Cash across the different locals of Carcer city in his attempt to free himself from his predicament.
What sets Manhunt aprt is its sense of style.
