What You Don't Know Doesn't Hurt You....until you find out

Summary: I got this game at Gamestop for $3.49. I had absolutely no idea what it was and it had no game graphics or instruction book. I burned off 2 weekends of my life playing it, had a great time. I reacted to the red filtered kills like "what the hell, huh?" and I didn't know yet about the red filter and why. This is a censored version of the game because some kid in England hit his brother in the head with a hammer and blamed it on this game. Check it out, that's why.
Summary: Game has some good action in it. Lots of blood and gore which makes it a pretty good action game. It was very entertaining. Lots of short videos throughout the game that were very awesome and somewhat funny. But yeah for the price i recommend this game to those who like action horror in one game.
Summary: The first game I bought from Rockstar was Bully, which I really loved, so I assumed Manhunt 2 would be of the same caliber. Sadly, Manhunt 2 has issues that make it very difficult to play: * The controls are complicated: the game uses every button of the PS2 for routine tasks making it very difficult to learn the key combinations necessary to succeed. To confuse things even more, some buttons perform different tasks in different settings to the point where I said, 'Wow!
Summary: So, Rockstar finally got to release the sequel the controversial cult classic "Manhunt", now part of the Sony`s "Greastest Hits" roster. In this game, there is no continuity involving the first title, this is a brand new story. You play the role of Daniel Lamb, science guy turned mental patient at the Dixmoore Asylum for the Criminaly insane. Right away, I noticed a few glaring problems. One would be the unmappable controls.
Summary: When I played the first Manhunt (way back when), I thoroughly enjoyed it. That game, much like its successor, received lots of negative exposure because of its "subject matter content" and overall violence. I, like most others who waited patiently for the sequel, plowed through yet more negative publicity; watched RockStar cancel its original release date for the game, and waded through all sorts of internet gossip about what had been done to the content of the game.
Summary: I loved the original manhunt, I have to admit it, I loved it. I though it was a sick and delightfully twisted game...no...art! It was spooky, gruesome, smart, intense, and totally enjoyable for someone like me. This one, like most sequels....sucks. It looks like the first, it plays like the first, it's in the same vein as the first, but it's the details where it falls apart, and I mean bad!
Summary: I bought this game when it first came out, and I was so excited. I just finished the game a few minutes ago, and I must say it was disappointing all throughout. I hoped that the game would get better as it progressed, but it seemed to stay at the same lackluster level. The graphics were awful, the enemies all seemed to behave in the same manner, the storyline was a bit bland, and there wasn't a lot of the blood and gore I kept hearing about.
Summary: I waited years for a sequel to manhunt only to be let down on many levels. The original Manhunt is in my top 3 game for PS2 ever made. I have re-played it so many times because it is such a challenging, fun game with so many exciting characters and levels. Before we even get into the censorship aspect of manhunt 2, lets start with the overall look of the game. Why didn't the game developers stick with the basic engine of the first one?
Summary: ROCKSTAR caved into the political and financial pressure and pass the $30 dollar loss onto the consumers. After a long await I was thrilled as the next guy to rush out and buy manhunt 2 as soon as it came out. I read all the reviews and heard the right wing fools complain about the game and thought, ok, just as the reviews said, only the most gruesome scenes will be edited. Boy was I wrong!
Summary: 1. Executions are censored. The gaming industry took precedant over the First Amendment and caused RockSt*r games to chicken out and create kiddie executions. Manhunt 1 is now MUCH more violent than Manhunt 2. 2. The first game told the story of a man being constantly watched, forced to murder to become free, and eventually getting revenge. The second game tells the story of a man who gets freedom but goes looking for why he was experimented on.
