    I guess no one was interested in this game at all.. anyways I got the Wii version last night and I said the first word that should come out of this game was the f word and holy shit I was right the first 2 words in the game was HOLY F*** so that was kinda a odd thing to happen.

    With the Wii version when u sneak up on someone you actually have to move the Wii mote in order to kill the hunter its kinda cool you actually feel like your killing the guy yourself. You use the Nunchuck to move and the camera is a fixed camera you just move left and right in order to go that way. But the camera still gives you problems though it gets in the way cause some times the camera is right up on your charactors head.

    But over all its a fun game It wouldnt surprize me one bit if the Wii version got pulled over something stupid a kid did.

    IF anyone got any questions I can get a screan cap of the exicutions as well (I know I spelled that wrong im kinda sick) then let me know

    I've heard it's been getting some pretty crappy reviews.

    I thought the first one was pretty craptacular.

    I might check this one out later as a rental, but there are too many sure fire hits right now for me to buy Manhunt 2.

    I liked the first one, but physically mimicking the actions of murdering people with the Wiimote makes me a bit uneasy, and if the wife saw me playing that there would be no end to the bitching and moaning. She hates violent games, and I'm getting to a point in my life where pointless violence like that IS kinda unsettling.

    I got it for the Wii today.

    I know they were going for violence, but they totally overdid it. My stomach churned when I ripped a guy's skull out with a sickle. :(

    No thank you. Violence for the sake of violence is not my cup of tea.

    Believe me, it is. It's basically, "Kill everyone because you can."

    News is making a huge commotion out of it down here.

    Cut skin off of face, pull on said skull when it's visible, and rip skull out.

    Dang, Unosock! And I think you are the target demographic for this game!

    It sounds to me like they watched Hostel and thought they needed to put that in the game. Nintendo sure has changed from turning the blood in Mortal Kombat to sweat.

    Yeah, and normally I love gory, bloody stuff. But there's no need for violence every other second with no motives whatsoever.

    Thanks for the link. I see that they are going for shock value alone. The character models and lighting look decidedly dated. It appears you creep through an area avoiding cameras while the enemies stand there with their eyesight fixated on 10% of the environment. You then target a portion of the persons body which starts you going through a gruesome Warioware execution scene.

    My question is this though: are they enemies or target dummies?
    They seem to put up little fight at all, they just make gurgling sounds.

    Then again, the player character is seen picking up a 150 pound manhole cover like it is made of styrofoam. Maybe they can't fight back because he has super powers.

    I am kind of the same way. I don't know where the line is, but I know when its been crossed. I had no idea how close I was when I said they probably watched Hostel.

    It seems the game is so good that you are playing Halo 3. :thumb 
    Wish I could play, too, but I'm at work.

    What a horribly offensive, and seemingly pointless, "game".

    "Oh look, a guy minding his own business. I think I'll castrate him with these pliers here for no reason!"

    That about sums it up.

    I seriously can't get over this game. It's sorta troubling. GTA has violence, but has a story. Mortal Kombat has violence, but again. It has a story. Same with all of the GTA rip-offs.

    But this has no story. At all. It's like the game was MADE to stir up commotion. My mom asked me why I stopped at Gamestop on the way home from school. Her exact words were, "You didn't get a game called Hunting Man, did you?" I was floored. She said it was all over the news as, "The goriest game ever made."

    Now I know why Nintendo used to stay away from this kind of stuff.
