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

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 »

Not a brilliant game, but you HAVE to play it just once!
3 August 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This, to me, is a game that is built on one thing and one thing only - atmosphere. From the virtually music-less title screen to the uber-gritty game itself, the entire game is dedicated to setting you on edge. As a game, it isn't fantastic, it can get a little repetitive and really frigging difficult, but the tension that is there at all times takes any attention away from the gameplay and puts it onto how scared you can actually be of a video game. And to Rockstar's credit, they do it fantastically, by using all the dirty tactics you can think of:

SOUND: Heartbeat - BGM only when you're spotted - Brian Cox as the maniacal Director, always urging you to kill

GAMEPLAY: Poor visibility - A radar that still ensures you can turn a corner and be surprised by a friggin scary hunter - Having everyone else in the entire game's sole purpose being to kill you - The fact that if you are spotted, and they find you, and you get into a fight with more than one of them, you WILL die

Overall, a scary game? Yes. A tense game? Yes. A good game? There are many games that are a great deal better. But you should rent it out, if only to see how much sick enjoyment you'll get out of splattering the contents of someone's skull all over the wall using only a baseball bat. I think you'll be surprised.
