Manhunt 2 Ruthless PC Revew

By   /   Nov 14, 2009

Manhunt  no doubt has been one of the the most controversial games this year.It has a unique controversy associated with it.Unlike all other games,this game was supposed to be banned due to violence and ruthless killing.

Ever since the sequel of this unique stealth based game was announced,it had to face many ups and downs.But finally against all odds, Rockstar has manged to release it on all major gaming platforms including PC.

Some of the critics have not given good ratings to the game just because it did not have any relations with the previous story line and new story does not parallel the original story.To me having a new story in the game does not make any big difference.Primary fun factor in Manhunt was “ruthless killing in shadows”which has been conserved in this sequel.

Game begins with a training tutorial which is also unique.First I thought that GPU has been fucked up as their was nothing but a dotted flashing screen  which actually was training about the ways you can kill a person.This training can be more interesting for those who haven’t played it’s first part.More you move your mouse more violent will be the  kill.

After that you find yourself in an asylum facility in a chaotic environment.Like all other prisoners you try to escape from the facility.Guided by an unknown voice you make your way out of the facility.Escape from the facility is actually a practice for the things you learned in the tutorial.Further story telling shall go as spoiler so lets discuss  some features of the game.

New ways of killing have been introduced in the game which might appear  appealing but to be honest,they are not as good as one might think.For example use of  fire weapons makes it easy killing specially the non mobile enemies.

It renders enemies weaker making them less challenging which in turn reduces fun factor.There are some interesting features too like you can create your own shadows by breaking lights and you can mask the sound of the kill you made in the sound of machines present around you.Other enemies around you wont be  alarmed by this.

Story of the game is a bit confusing itself,but one can understand it if he/she plays it with gaps less than one day.You may forget the whole background scenario of the story. So I will suggest completing the game in least sittings.

If you have been afraid of playing this title then this is your chance to play it as this time they have not made kills look as ruthless as in first title. There are several other minute changes made in the game which you should decide on your own whether they are good or not.Overall this game is more than worthy of just playing it.

If you have been waiting to strangle your enemy and cut it into pieces then don’t miss this one.I enjoyed it a lot, so what’s the verdict? Rent it.
