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

Two "boss" characters who didn't make it into the game are the Scarecrow and Binbag. The Scarecrow was meant to be the former leader of the Smileys who had his title taken from him after he was defeated by Piggsy, whom he held a vendetta against. When he was not in his costume, the Scarecrow was nothing more than a drunken, gibbering tramp, who can be seen in the game when Cash is up against the Innocentz. Binbag was to be the leader of the Lost (a gang which was not used) and dressed from head to toe in black garbage bags. See more

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
