That's not all though, this game has a great storyline going, and I can't wait to finish it up. I'm about 5 levels in, and I love the gameplay as much now, as I did in the first level. Lure people over, do horrible things, continue...great fun!
The ONLY thing that's a bummer, is the enemy AI...but what the heck ever, it's still a blast to play, and I think that shouldn't change your mind one bit from renting, or buying it. The graphics aren't the best, but what the heck, you're playing the Wii, not Ps3, so what did you expect?
Bottom line...if you want to kill stuff by doing stabbing and slitting motions, get this game. Just don't be such a game punk like all the people who've reviewed it before me... It can be fun to play if you let it entertain you.
Better than the First

The storyline is much better than the first game, with flashbacks that are pretty cool. I also really like the attention to detail in the game (blood splatters stay on you throughout the game). The whole thing with the blur effect isn't really that bad. I've actually played the PS2 version with the effect removed, and it wasn't that much better. You do get to see more, but the effect also kinda adds to the whole "crazy" storyline.
This game is definitely not for kids or people who do not like violence. If you're like me and you like gangster films, horror movies and overall goriness, then you'll love this game.
For all the prior reviews.

crua99, it does not seem like you have any idea what you are actually talking about... If what you say is true about Nintendo not having games that parents would not want their children playing, there would be no Scarface, Godfather, or any other game that has an M rating. Lastly the part where you said "trust me, i make games" I thought was HILARIOUS because reading your post made me think of the SIMS. Did you help make the language that one? Because I could barely make out what you had typed, try using real words, full words, and proper spelling when posting like this and maybe someone might take you seriously.
I can't really understand why everyone talks about how much they anticipated the game dropping, yet failed to do any research as to why it was delayed, or if they did the research continue to cry about the fact that the executions had to be blurred. Here's one that should really get you guys riled up.... They actually REMOVED a whole execution because the ESRB thought that even the blurry version was too grotesque.
Don't blame Nintendo and don't blame Rockstar, it is not their fault. Blame the ESRB and the fact that games are becoming more and more censored and that the artists who are creating these games are being restricted by politicians who probably don't even play games.
Terrible, Pathetic, SHOULD BE RATED TEEN!

con: how wii is, with any game that there might be somthing that a mom and dad may not like the wii people will remove it or change it. (that most of the reason y it take 5 times longer to get somthing on the wii. trust me i make games)
on the last man hunt you can see what is happening but this one they pretty much block out it with red
the control on it is like it has a bug in it
the wii imaging system sucks so this game looks like it was let out be4 manhunt 1
the story line is ok but that it
truth i think the wii people gave this game a m bc of the problems of what the moms and dads may say bad things, even tho it be there own fault for letting there kid do anything
i think this game should be rated t bc there realy isnt so much in there to make it a m. beside the rateing in over all i think this game shouldnt be rented bc of a mix of bad grapichs, bad control, and it realy look like this game is not done

Manhunt 2 is ridiculously inferior to Manhunt 1

The game is CENSORED: They use several types of filters, including turning the whole screen red so you can't see the blood, among distortion of the video and such, which leaves you with "I can't quite see what he's doing". Go YouTube Manhunt 1 executions, then Manhunt 2, and you will see a MAJOR difference.
Also, the Wii controls make that split second timing hard to pull off, making all the executions screw up, so you then have to just hit the guy to death (swinging the remote to punch gets old). The storyline isn't as good, the graphics are the same it looks like, and the characters aren't as good.
I don't care if it's from 2003, GO GET MANHUNT 1, as it is the most violent video game out there. When I played Manhunt 1 back then, I was shocked, and I'm really hard to shock. In hindsight I'm not at all surprised they censored the game.
BTW, if you think that only the Wii is censored, or that I'm in some weird country that has a special version of the game, think again. ALL versions of the game are censored, and the only way to uncensor it is to get the PSP version of the game and hack it.

1. The controls are cumbersome and unreliable
2. AI is mentally handicapped at best
3. The story is played out
4. The "scary" screen flash will probably send you into epileptic shock
I tried to play this game for about 20 minutes. Granted this is not a fair shake for a game, typically; in this case it was 19 minutes too long.
favorite game ever!

the only things that sucked was it wasn't brutal enough and you couldnt see the executions clearly. but other than that, this game kept me up until the sun came up every night because i couldnt stop playing it. so entertaining. you need to buy this.

The game is definitely not at all for little kids, as it has a LOT of violence, gore, and scary atmosphere. It blurs most of the violence and takes the nudity out, but that's because the makers were forced to blur everything out in order of it's release, and because of the blur, it makes it a little confusing as to what's going on and makes it a little dizzy at times. But if you get used to the game play on the Wii, it can be very easy to play, and if you take the blurs as a very artistic way of making the game even more frightening, it can be a very good game. I have to say though, the beginning is the best part, once you've past the beginning area where you are escaping an Asylum, it gets to be much quieter and maybe a bit boring. Overall it's a great game and puts the Wii remote into very good use as it was meant to be. I give this game an 8, it's worth it, but only for gamers not easily offended.
Warning! This game for Adults only!
