    It's going to be on the -Wii- with -interactive Wiimote violence-?! :lol 

    Hopefully the game itself will be more engaging to me than the first one...found it less hur-hur fun and more "awrgh sneaking is boring" after a while.

    Dear god, I love some good action in a game but that might be a bit over the top... To think Nintendo used to be the company that had the blood cut out of Mortal Kombat and now their Wii will provide the most visceral version of this game possible...

    I never played the first one, due to it being banned in NZ and illegal to own a copy.


    ah well.


    guess what will happen to version 2?

    I just checked my games, and I own Manhunt. Funny thing is that I've never played. Go figure...

    Awesome, awesome, and awesome!

    My Wii is going to be a lot more fun to play with now.

    And I STILL won't play the first Manhunt in the dark alone.

    I rented the first Manhunt and played it for about an hour. One of the most boring gaming experiences of my life.

    Wow... That certainly sounds like one violent game.

    It's actually been banned in the UK, the rating body has refused to give it a certificate so it's not even getting to shelves here!

    hwy not make game where it has different ratings...that way it can be released...as a "M" rating.

    Remember when Nintendo turned MKs blood from red to something else...

    Come back when you are actually old enough to buy it in the shops without mommy or daddys help.

    If it's worse than Manhunt, it's just more senseless violence for the sake of senseless violence. Shock value just isn't shocking anymore.

    Wake us up when onesock is no longer the butt of all your jokes. ;) 

    This game sounds pretty wicked, but...eugh. Personally, not a big fan of violence. I bet the fiance will get a kick out of it.
