Excerpt: Everyone probably still remembers Postal and its successor Postal 2. Both games were all but good when it cam to gameplay and graphics (not to say they were shit) but they did manage to get on store shelves and receive tons of press attention. Why ?
Excerpt: Manhunt is the latest game from the people who brought us the Grand Theft Auto series, and as you'd expect it's a game not intended for all audiences. In fact, Manhunt is so violent, even the most hardened gamer might get a bit queasy playing through the game.
