The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Creepy unsettling atmosphere, gruesome, gory stealth kills, decent story, lots of weapons

The Bad: Censorship detracts you from the experience, story doesn't fill you in enough, most people won't be able to play the uncensored version

While this game doesn't quite live up to it's controversy or hype it is a wonderful action game. You play as Daniel Lamb who escapes from an asylum trying to find out who he is and why he is there. While the story takes forever to unfold and is told in tiny bits and pieces it's there. The core game play is the stealth. While this game makes you use your skill over luck it makes for a more rewarding experience. You can hide in the shadows and sneak up on people and perform stealth kills which are gruesome and awesome to watch. There are three different levels of kills depending on how long you hold the action button down for. Each level is more violent and gruesome and there are tons of different weapons and environmental kills to use. While the kills are somewhat censored with a grainy blurry filter over it this detracts a lot from the experience.

I personally played the uncensored version because that's the only way to play. What makes this game so gruesome is if you shoot someone in the head you make a huge hole right through the middle and their brains splatter against the wall. You can saw off people's heads, smash scythes through their skulls, rip out their spines with crowbars, and even slice up their throat with a garrote wire. While not every stealth kill is gory they are bloody and look painful. Due to Rockstar choosing the older hardware they couldn't pull off super gruesome kills where guts are flying everywhere. There is also gun play where you'll have to go out and kill people but this isn't as fun as the stealth. You'll LOVE Manhunt 2 and if you can tolerate the censorship then go for it. I'd give the censored version a B but since I played it uncensored I give it a B+.
