(I don't count Wii as next gen, I call it 'different gen.')
Imagine procision knife cutting with the Wiimote, awesomeness.

We're in the current gen, and like it or not, the Wii is in the current generation of consoles, in a purely logical manner. But I think I know where you're going with that. So technically this game is being made for a last-gen, a new-gen, and a crappy portable system.

I'm banking that the Wii version will probalby be the most interesting, and best selling, of the three.

The wii sure is trying to shake the kiddy image. We already have Godfather, Driver and Scarface.

It made me feel dirty for playing it. I've lost my respect for Rockstar, it just seems like they sink to new lows with every game they make. To this day I have never played San Andreas and I will not be playing this game either.

anyway that stupid arogant american bloke will try to get this banned no doubt, but i will still buy it

It was actually a very good game. And an extremely good concept - which mocked are reality television, showing how extreme it may get to. Or at least taking the mick at the very concept of reality shows for entertainment.

Intelligent game, with amazing game-play system and atmosphere - and hell the voice acting was some of the best I have ever heard in a game.

Absolutely amazing voice-acting. Some of those mental-patients were harrowing and amusing and the voice-over guy 'controlling' you was such a great performance that built until the end of the game.

Don't be fooled by the violence - hey "Saw 3" was an intelligent film....really taking the genre to a new level.

A game could have the best mechanics, but if the source material disagrees with you then the game suffers for it. Im sorry I stopped playing the game after I beat someone to death with the bat and the man on the radio said, "Oh yeah, your getting me off." That was it..end of story.

It's a game! If you want to keep away from explicit content including incest, rape and violence I suggest you never read the bible. It has made many people mix up fiction with reality!

The point is that it is mocking what has both become of television entertainment and video games. Yes the guy is crazy - yes you're meant to be disturbed. Thankfully you're killing crazy gang members.

But heres the thing, for once it points out how far it can go and you are desperately aware that you are killing for entertainment - so far games have had people running around killing people and we have become desensitised...HALO, Killzone, Prince of Persia - they'll all about killing people for your entertainment and nobody gives a crap - it seems like a natural thing to do and that's scary.

This game highlights why this is so scary, bringing what playing this 'game' in life would entail and you get to kill the sick producer who made you do it. It's clever, it's disturbing, it's hard to play, but it certainly is not desensitising violence in games.

You hear it got banned in the UK for a while since a kid killed his friend and apparently was inspired by manhunt. Stupid, it's like blaming Marylin Manson for the Columbine shootings. And one the kids shouldnt have this game, and second it was his friend who played it - the killler kid had never played it in his life.
