Conclusion: But I recommend parents think twice. Kids have plenty of time to virtually slash people up. Mr. “Going on 13” Welling here would have been better off playing Pac-Man and pondering what virtual “dots” are doing to his waistline.
Excerpt: They say that politics makes strange bedfellows. And they also say that even bad publicity is good publicity. I would say with all of the hype centered around a game like Manhunt 2 that the taxpayers' money should have been focused elsewhere.
Excerpt: What an utterly hollow and empty enterprise Manhunt 2 is. After months of controversy, with various bans being issued by various countries, and the ESRB threatening to put an Adults Only (AO) rating on the box, in the end all the political posturing that went on turns out to be far more exciting and...
Excerpt: Rockstar's answer to this AO rating ended up being to simply blur the most violent kills, make them so they weren't really clear. It worked, the rating was lowered and the title is out. Its not a satisfying answer however. Because just like the original
Conclusion: I will defend Rockstar’s right to make this kind of content, and for people to play that content if they so choose. But the way our community reacts to it just doesn’t seem healthy. Not when a game this crummy can still be so potent.
Summary: While this is hardly the best version of Manhunt 2 on the market, it does make me wonder if we might start to see some of Rockstar's bigger (and better) games on the Nintendo Wii. Manhunt 2 is a good game for it is, but the Wii just doesn't feel like the perfect fit for such a gruesome action game.
Summary: In Rockstar Games' Manhunt 2 an experiment at a secret research facility has gone catastrophically wrong. Daniel Lamb and Leo Kasper are the only surviving subjects. The Pickman Project will stop at nothing to hunt them down and stop the truth from getting out.
Summary: Pardon me as I rage against the game that countless politicians argued over and wasted my tax dollars on. Manhunt 2 is hardly worth the time and effort spent in debates over the questionable content in this game. In fact this is one of the worst games I’ve played all year.
