Manhunt is a third-person stealth-action game developed by Rockstar Games. The game caused a lot of controversy for its violent scenes.


A death sentenced convict James awakens in Carcer City after his supposed execution by lethal injection. The protagonist finds himself equipped with an earpiece, in which he hears the voice of The Director. The Director offers James freedom in turn for helping The Director shoot his violent TV show. It is said that a gang called The Hoods is patrolling the neighborhood killing everyone they spot. James has to survive the night in Carcer City in order to get his freedom.


The players have to traverse multiple locations to complete a specific list of tasks. These tasks come down to getting somewhere, murdering a gang member, and finding items.

There is a group of special enemies called The Hunters which run to the players as soon as they are spotted. The game features an advanced stealth system. The players can be hidden in the shadows, yet if they step on something, a noise will be made, which can attract The Hunters.

There are two ways of executing an enemy - a direct confrontation or a stealth kill. It is much harder to kill an enemy using the first way, as the game encourages the players to use stealth kills. These stealth kills are often referred to as Executions. There are three types of executions, with each one varying in their speed and violence.

Manhunt reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Spain
Product received for free manhunt, the game that if you played on PS2, sure your mother will have challenged you to play Rockstar north, when they generated controversy with the Grand Theft Auto 3D, decided to go one step further and create a game with much more violence and s Angre, with morbid and interesting executions. HISTORY The story is a bit simplistic and an excuse not to have to kill because if. You'Re Cash, a guy who's doomed to death, but in the end and for a reason, they just sleep. You wake up in a mysterious place and you only have a headset in which a person speaks to you, this tells you that if you want to get out of here just go ahead and do what he tells you. During the game you will find different street bands, that this does not affect many things, only skins of the enemies and some other weapon different. MECHANICS Here Everything is focused on killing, just find 2 NPCs friendly in the whole game. The elements that can be used there are many, from simple plastic bags to shotguns or assault rifles Too, hiding is a fundamental thing if you don't want to die right away. Each level must be used well the head, is not a game that you can go out there getting 100 bullets and heal you by sucking your finger. Each enemy has a designed path, and if you alarms or see a corpse changes its pace to go to find you. The game has 2 modes of difficulty: Dolly, and sack. The only difference is that you don't have a minimap. It Sounds stupid, but in this game the minimap is something necessary. It serves You to see the location of nearby enemies, to see if they are looking for you or are only patrolling, seeing if you're making noise, etc. that you take it away, makes you go with even more care and use even more head. It Has a total of 20 levels, and each level can be taken 5 stars (if you play in Dolly only You can get 4 out of 5). If you get 3 stars you will receive an image in the menu that can be different things of the beta game, or designs. This gives a reason to replay the game. BUGS The biggest problem the game has, like most of Rockstar's games, is the port they made for PC. It Has bugs that directly does not let you pass the first level, and this rockstar does not even take the trouble to fix it. But thanks to the community some bugs could repair Bugs repaired The bug that affected everyone and made the majority not play the game, is the famous door that does not open in the first level. When you kill the first two hunters you will have to go through a door. The funny Thing? It won't open. A bug that is very serious and Rockstar does not want to repair, because power can, but the version of PS2 would be unplayable. Also, the community made several arrangements to this. In The Community guides there is one called Manhunt Reborn. But I did not served, So probe with a patch that is on this page: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Manhunt and I worked. And with that you can spend the game calm Bugs that I found no solution For the whole time I played the game I found some other bug, which is not something that does not allow progress in the game, but there are times that annoys. The Most notice is that sometimes a sound or audio despite not being, still playing. An EJ: There is a level in which there is a tele playing pornography, to annoy the hunter we can turn off the TV. The fact is that when the TV turns off the moans continue to reproduce. Then I step in a scene that at the end is played every time a dialogue of Cash, was so annoying that I had to save and go back to the level. Also Nose If you consider it bug or not. But even if you put the bodies in the shadows, sometimes other hunters will still see the corpse and alert everyone. CONCLUSION manhunt, although your port to PC is Malisimo. But Despite that, is a good game (and something undervalued) that is worth buying, although I recommend that you buy it with offer, I do not think it is worth the full price.
