They just killed Cash. Now, they want to kill him again.
America is full of run down, broken rust-belt towns where nobody cares and anything goes. In Carcer City, nothing matters anymore and all that's left are cheap thrills. The ultimate rush is the power to grant life and take it away, for sport. This time James Earl Cash, you are the sport.
They gave you your life back. Now, they are going to hunt you down.
You awake to the sound of your own panicked breath. You must run, hide and fight to survive. If you can stay alive long enough, you may find out who did this to you.
This is a brutal blood sport.

This game is indeed violent and gory with a dark ambience, an intriguing story (but sadly not enough developed). It's a stealth action game (sometimes, it's even looks like a survival horror) where you have to kill your enemies with every item you can find : Glass, Crowbars, Bats, even plastic bags. If the execution is violent, you get more points.
The controls are correct, but the most important is probably the sound which helps you to immerse yourself in this dark world. The game is really great, fun, and gory.
Last thing : A patch is needed to play on Windows Vista, 7 or 8. But it's easy to find it.
If you like this type of game, give it a try, you will not regret it.
Decent Snuff Action Game from the makers of The Grand Theft Autohomes223 | Feb. 5, 2014 | See all homes223's reviews »
Manhunt is a game that helps you relieve stress by bashing your enemy's heads in with assortments of weapons and death scenes. While it may decrease some stress it usually adds more stress and frustration to the player rather than help calm them. This happened to me a lot when playing against the A.I. who had guns. If you can get past the fact of dumb A.I. and frustrating sequences then you will find a solid game that is a clash between Splinter Cell, GTA, and a snuff film. ManHunt really capitalizes on the snuff and dirty scenes that make the death scenes feel authentic and original. You get a lot of weapons such as bats, poles, and a few different guns at the end, which are a lot of fun to execute bad guys with. The gameplay and graphics overall are what you would expect from a game from the guys who made GTA but the hard parts and horrible A.I. somewhat ruin a game that could have been much more.

There are lots of videogames that use extreme graphic violence, but `Manhunt really is pretty much built up around it. You play as a convict put in an unusual situation: you have to hunt down other convicts while the antagonist records it. Basically you sneak around and execute loads of people from the shadows, which then are graded by the level of violence you used. But before we write Manhunt off as just a gore filled slash fiction we have to mention that it also includes solid stealth gameplay, great level and opponent design and a surprisingly good story. I could compare it to a high-end graphics (of its time) version of Hotline Miami with the game taking itself a bit more serious. I would recommend the game to anyone hungry for a stealth-driven game and not grossed out easily.
Manhunt ReviewDarkpeing | Oct. 10, 2013 | See all Darkpeing's reviews »
One of the sickest games I've ever played. Despite having to troubleshoot it to get it working on Steam (you need to download some patches and apps) it delivers a good experience. What's preventing me from giving a higher score is probably the monotonous gameplay that begins when you first acquire a shooting weapon. The game goes downhill after that, becoming a shootfest when it could have included more hand weapons and more executions to marvel at.
Kinda like a really messed up version of Splinter Cell.FLD | Oct. 9, 2013 | See all FLD's reviews »
This game is seriously messed up. You stab, choke and murder people in all kinds of way. If you're easily shocked or offended, you might want to steer clear of this one. But otherwise, this game is a really solid stealth action title. If you don't mind the depravity there's some really good gameplay to be found here. Just keep in mind it's not for the faint of heart.
