Manhunt 2 opens with your character, Danny Lamb, strangling an elderly, unarmed nurse almost to death. Yeah. It's that sort of a game.
Ignoring all of the BS politics of making a game that entertains solely through violence, or the possible repercussions of selling such a game, only one question matters: is the damn thing any good?
The original Manhunt was plodding and repetitive, yet kind of fun due to its then-remarkable gruesomeness and unpretentious nature. Does Manhunt 2 improve upon these flaws? Does it move on from simple torture porn and prove itself an entertaining game in its own right? How badly do the cuts Rockstar made in order to achieve an M rating hurt the gameplay?
