For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.
We've all been there. Everyone remembers that mission. You and your partner are climbing up the mountains in the snow, striving to pull some slick clandestine operation about getting some intel on a bad guy, or something similar (because let's face...
Manhunt was made by the same guys that made Grand Theft Auto so you know this is ganna be a blood bath. You are an ex-criminal called Cash taken off death row to be killed, well not really cause your being set up by some nut job that calls himself 'the Director'. He tells you that there is a second chance at life, but there is a price you have to pay, Cash must kill for a show and for The Director's pleasure.
You are put into a city that is filled with gangs and ex-army dudes, they all hunt you and they all wanna kill you, before they get the chance to kill you, you must kill them. Cash is no softy, you see he is a mean and pissed off guy that will not take bull$h!t by some punks with baseball bats. the game gives you alot of weapons, from plastic bags, glass shards, knives, bats, sickles, handguns, shotguns, rifles and a chainsaw but there is so much more that its hard to remember them. This game is dark and gory, with alot of cursing and alot of violence.
The gangs that hunt are dumb at the starting until you meet the bigger and stronger gangs that don't f@*/ around too much. The shadows are your friends and if you wanna kill some dudes that are jsut stanting there, then please use them alot. The quick kills are brutal, for example the plastic bag wraps around the guys head, Cash puches him a few times in the face then breaks his neck, its something that you have to see for yourself. Cash likes to take peoples heads off and you can use them after, whoever made that is a genius I'll say.
This game is fun, no real story here but the game is an experience. RockStar has done it again with this one, but it dose have some problems with the game, the aiming is bad the camera has some problems, the AI is lacking, well there crackheads so I guess the AI is alright.
If you like stealth, gore, violene, alot of blood, cursing and head shoping objects then pick this game up and don't show your kids or anyone that has a weak stomach cause this is not made for people that can't handle the show.
