"Go on a Gamehunt for Manhunt 2."
Manhunt 2 is the follow up to Manhunt by Rockstar Games. This game was originally given an AO rating, but was edited down to an M rating. The Wii version takes advantage of the Wiimote and Nunchuk. Executions are performed by following the onscreen actions with the Wiimote and Nunchuk.
Gameplay 9/10 - Manhunt 2 offers great gameplay while taking advantage of the Wiimote. This game offers 2 difficulty levels, sane and insane. This game offers different levels of executions depending on how long you hold down the A button, with each level of execution being more violent. The beginning part may start off kind of boring, but then it becomes really fun after you get the hang of it.
Controls 8/10 - Manhunt 2 nails the controls perfectly. The controls when using a gun feels like Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition, with laser pointer accuracy. The Wii controls of Manhunt 2 gives the lifelike feel of executions. With the motion controls of the Wii, it gives the executions the lifelike feel that you are actually killing someone. There is one flaw that I have noticed in the controls. Sometimes the character will freeze up, but I resolve that by tilting the nunchuk to the left or right.
Graphics 7/10 - This is the biggest flaw with this game. The graphics are a bit outdated. They don't look too much of a step up from the first Manhunt. And another flaw is the blurs when you are preforming executions. Sometimes every once in a While, I also notice a bit of a slowdown. However, the graphics are still good enough to make this game enjoyable.
Sound 9/10 - So far the sound has been fairly good in this game. There aren't really any major flaws in the sound. Although the executions are blurred, the sounds still give you the feel of what is going on.
Replay Value 8/10 - I've been putting alot of time into this game since I have got it and I don't think I will be stopping for a while. I will be playing this game through a few times on each difficulty and try to go for the best ratings. This game has plenty of replay value.
Buy/Rent - I say buy this game. If you liked the first Manhunt game, go for it. If you are new to Manhunt and would like to try this out, give it a rent.
Final Score 8/10
