The Bin: Manhunt

Hardcore Gamer: Manhunt can be seen to be a much deeper game than many perceive it to be and if it was any other medium, it would be called art. (manhunt, PC, PS2, Xbox)

+Bubbles it's still the best single player experience I have ever had and I don't think that will change. It was so intense and nerve racking, I loved every second of Manhunt. Sad we won't get a 3rd because of all the bad publicity from the whiners...

Agree, glad to see some people still give this game the credit it deserves

Love this game, a reboot of this game with the same play mechanics of the the 1st would be great.

This game will forever be a classic. in spite of the negative press it got for the over the top violence, it really is one of the strongest games rockstar has ever produced. truly has all the tools to be ss big as their GTA series. one of the BIGGEST shames in gaming history is to see this series die out quietly because of such close minded individuals. the sequel to this game was a ridiculous attempt to shut up the hardcore fans who were dying for a 2nd game.

if theirs any justice in the world of gaming, A proper continuation of the manhunt series will eventually surface. the thing about manhunt that no one admits is that it is a MUCHHHH less volatile game than the gta series. see because when you play manhunt, youre aware that the object of the game is horrendous violence. its difficult for you to play. what makes GTA so dangerous is the fact that the violence, sex and drug selling in the game is made to be no big deal. games like manhunt make you see how horrific violence can be while games like gta desensitize you to it.

Very well said. Bubble.

And I agree about the violence. They make the killing shocking, as it would be in real life, and people get all uptight, where as a movie like Private Ryan gets hailed as brilliantly realistic, but a game that makes killing out to be no big deal, which by extension could make real killing seems like no big deal, (in certain twisted minds) is fine. Gta got its fair share of flack, but that was mainly for teaching us you could rob hookers and no where near the point that manhunt did.

Again, well said.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   730d ago
Exactly.
one game illustrates the horror and intensity of such grotesque violence, while the another game normalizes it.
Im not necessarily saying that GTA should be censored, not by any means. im only saying its definitely something of an injustice that the GTA series catches flack, but is still one of the highest selling games of all time, yet a new manhunt game is a ridiculous request.

Still own both games my all time favorites from Rockstar. Hope we could one day see a new Manhunt game on next-gen consoles.
L6RD7BLU3  +   730d ago
I agree but I sure wish it doesn't get censored like Manhunt 2. Some people just need to calm down and accept the fact that it's just a GAME! *sigh*

They released an uncensored version for PC.

Manhunt was amazing when it came out and The Last of Us really reminds me of the kind of feeling from manhunt....lets hope

One of my all time favorites as well.

This game is truly amazing and the soundtrack by Craig Connor is incredibly haunting and intense. This is one of the best games ever made. James Earl Cash is also one of the most underrated video game characters ever. He wiped out gangs, police, swat and psychopaths by himself, and got his revenge. The baddies in this game are one of the best too. They have some hilarious lines.

Really one of my favourite games ever.

Dripping with atmosphere, dark and mature, brilliant sound design, one of the best early uses of a cover system, completely built around stealth, the gore, oh yes, the gore. And who could forget Brian Cox's performance as the director? One of the best in a game ever.

Now the bad news. Don't expect a reboot anytime soon. Too much controversy, the wowsers tying Rockstars hands, and with graphics progressing so much the polititions would have a field day. Too be honest, id take a Manhunt3 over a GTA5 anyday.

One of my all time nail-biting/memorable moments in a game ever: Being stalked/chased by the corpulent, chainsaw-wielding, swine-headed mental mass murderer known only as, Piggsy, throughout the dingy rooms and rafters of Starkweather's attic! Holy hell...I nearly pooped my pants several times during that portion of the game!

Yeeeaaaahhhh, now I may have to go back and play through it all over again... Damnit, now look what you guys have done to me! ;)

Such a memorable stealth-action game. Just saturated in atmosphere and depravity. Offense felt sick, defense felt scary. I needed a shower after a marathon session lol. The Last of Us reminds me of it at times, minus the snuff.
