One of the best action games I have played I would say. The game play is terrific and the game's atmosphere makes a great spectacle. As the main character, James Cash, you are a death row prisoner who is put into various situations and pitted against groups of thugs you have to kill in various sadistic ways.
The weapons design is ingenious, form a plastic bag to shotgun. A sick cinematographer is putting you through these so called scenes where you have to execute thugs in a particularly grisly way and use stealth to your advantage. The game is heavily dependent on stealth features and you have to make a thorough scan of your surroundings before you choose your best path of action.
Manhunt is very violent and gory. Not recommended for the faint hearted. Once you get the hang of it, you will want for more. By the time you are done, you will lose the body count.
