Storyline

Manhunt is like a super-violent Truman Show. It is a very dark, disturbing and creepy video game. Most certainly NOT to be played by children or teenagers. There are no heroes here. Only villains. Not one single character is the type of person you'd want to run into a dark alley with. Including the main character. The game is filled with nothing but thugs, Neo-Nazi skinheads, psychopaths, corrupt police officers, lots of cursing, gore, and violence. The star of Manhunt is a serial killer on Death Row who goes by the name of James Earl Cash. On the day he's set to be executed, they take him to the chamber and he is then put to death....or was he? It turns out the "lethal injection" he received was nothing more then a strong sedative. In one of the first scenes, Cash wakes up in a locked dark hospital-like room, alive and well. Over the intercom a strange man's voice speaks to him and tells him to put on a wireless earpiece that is on a table next to him. He does this and then the voice... Written by Zeeboe82@aol.com

Trivia

Four gangs were created which didn't make it into the game: the Camheads, the Clowns, the Lost, and the Jury. The Camheads wore suits and had camera attached to their heads. The Clowns dressed as their name suggested, the Lost dressed in scavenged metal, and the Jury dressed in hockey masks. The hockey mask design eventually went to the Skinz gang. The Clowns were given a back story which gave them obvious similarities to serial killer John Wayne Gacy, including an advocate who shared Gacy's surname. See more »

Quotes

The Director: From here on in, we're gonna need some fighting skills to get through the action. We're talking to-to-toe.
The Director: I know you've got the balls, so just give me the best you've got and you'll deal with the pussy, no problem. The gate will open once I'm done filming here.

Crazy Credits

After the credits finish rolling, a random segment of a children's television show plays briefly. Supposedly, this is to give the impression that Starkweather taped over the majority of the children's show with the snuff film footage of Cash's killings. See more »

Very playable, very cool, very nasty
22 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you have any kind of built up anger from a day of hard work, just sit down, turn on your Playstation and put in Manhunt, the ultimate game to take your rage out on. With dozens of varied and very violent ways to execute exceptionally hate able characters this is a must for anyone with a sweet tooth for gore. Done in a cctv camera style, this is an original, addictive and challenging stealth game that in fact requires a lot of time and thought. The only drawback with it is the later levels where stealth kills are no longer the way to succeed; it's an array of fun but repetitive gunfights. But don't let me give you the wrong idea; this along with Max Payne and San Andreas is easily Rockstar's finest offering, well most violent anyway. Vicious, blood thirsty and good fun.
