You're in for a sweet, bloody and gory ride, my friend

 

I'm not easily impressed by violence in media, but this game made me feel emotions no other Horror movie/game has ever accomplished, not even a bit

It really is a unique experience. It makes you realize how much more daring video games and Rockstar used to be back then. You'd never see a game like Manhunt get made today, which is a shame honestly. We need more games with a similar atmosphere and that actually makes you feel immersed.

 

I finished it like a week ago now, and I'm sad I'll never get that first time experience again.

Nah, it won't work as an open world game, plus Rockstar is really great at making linear games in my opinion. Would be like the Hitman games where levels are huge sandboxes, but not really open world

Could this classic game ever get the mobile treatment?

I doubt it, but who knows, stramger things have happened. I'd buy it for sure, and I'd also buy Manhunt 2 on PS4 if they ever released it there. That's pretty unlikely as well though.

Hi, I have a question.

 

I am translating Manhunt 1 to my native language just for the fun of it. So, I'm wondering where should I upload the subtitles, I mean, is there any forum for that sort of thing or not?

 

Thanks in advance.

I'd make a topic here in the Mod Showroom under "Other," and then I think there is a section for translations on the PCGamingWiki for each game on there, and just like regular Wikipedia, you can edit it yourself and add a link for your language. That way if anyone ever checks the PCGamingWiki (which in my opinion should be the first place to go when installing an old game, or having issues period) and they use the same language as you, they'll see your link and follow it to the download page.

I wish Rockstar would either remaster this game, reboot the series, or just come out with Manhunt 3. 

 

Just something. But we live in a soft as sh*t society now so I doubt it unfortunately.

Playing The Last of Us right now, almost finished my first playthrough, and it gave me, in sooo many occasions, strong Manhunt vibes, I feel like Naughty Dog had took some inspirations from Rockstar North's classic here and there

 

Also, this very interesting article: https://www.google.com/amp/amp.denofgeek.com/us/games/manhunt/253222/manhunt-legacy-horror-masterpiece

How hard it is depends on your patience for the type of game it is, which is a stealth game. I haven't played Manhunt in many years but I do remember there being some pretty difficult sections.

 

That being said, don't let that turn you away from the game, its pretty unique in that R* sort of way and I thoroughly recommend it.

Today is the 13th anniversary (the spookiest anniversary) of an underappreciated gem by the name of Manhunt 2. I remember going to Gamestop after school to buy a copy. First time in my life I decided not to go out and get candy or go to a party. I just sat inside all night playing Manhunt 2.

I had been chatting a lot with a partner of mine from north London and he was telling me about all the brutal bloody knife murders that happen out there where wild youths are just going absolutely mad and chasing eachother down and stabbing eachother to death and being covered in blood.
Him being a two time felon and having his fare share of scuffles in knife fights told me that it’s almost like a real life manhunt game out there.

 

I think that’s a Brilliant premise if I’m being honest. Everyone wants a gta London but a think a manhunt with a London setting could be absolutely captivating. It would make sense that guns would be extremely limited and combat would be based around knives and other simple melee weapons.

Manhunt, gr8 game...

I remember when it was first announced c. 2002. When I heard you could suffocate people with plastic bags I knew I needed to play it. 

My country of course banned it because they're pussies but of course that couldn't stop me playing it. Plastic bags! Hilarious! 

 

And I can't mention Manhunt without mentioning the soundtrack. Very cool stuff by Craig Conner....

They wont make a game like manhunt ever again tbh i doubt it would be feasible from a financial or moral standpoint

 

Then again the first game probably had one of the rawest, dirtiest and most hostile atmospheres I've ever seen in a video game which I haven't seen be replicated since then, so in a way it kinda makes me happy that there aren't any plans for a third game since the second one was pretty much a hollow shell of the first.

Rockstar is way too P.C. nowadays to tackle a title like this, that company that used controversy as their main selling point is just not there anymore, IMO. There's also the fact it's probably not easy to monetize a game like this.

 

Wish they prove me wrong though.

IMO Manhunt was a nice, fun, and challenging game. The only thing i had an issue with is the bugs on pc. Manhunt 2 had some cool gameplay but the story is kinda lame.

Manhunt was a great gaming experience at the time. It was genuinely a scary game, with a really grimy, disturbing atmosphere from start to finish. I would love to see a straight up remake of it. Keep the same story and play mechanics, just update the aesthetic visually and audibly. I remember the first time I put a plastic bag over somebody's head for the kill and it filled with blood. That last sequence in the dirty attic with Piggsy looking for was outright nerve-wracking. Superb game.

always wanted to play the manhunt games as a kid but i was too scared getting caught by my mom playing it lol. finally got around to the first and its kickin my ass. shame there's prob never be an official widespread PC release, or a third game for that matter. I guess rockstar is only interested in generating controversy if it means not actually upsetting people in power lol.

I noticed the upcoming Halloween update for RDO has a piggsy mask, and GTAO has an arcade for the “Camhedz” concept hunters in dripfeed rumoured to release? The Diamond heist adding “Hunter” themed masks was great, but this is really nice to see them making gentle nods back to this title, even if they supposedly want nothing to do with it anymore.

 

Oh how I miss this game 🔪

so i have been playing this game a bit. i got it a while back. but after a couple missions i quit. but lately i had the urge to try it again. right now im on the mission where you have to escort the tramp. so far my opinions are mixed. its not a bad game. but it feels outdated. controls are bad. and im not a stealth fan. but i do like the atmosphere. the dark creepy vibe with the perfect music fits great. i feel like if the game came out today it would be better. although i know the media would hate on it.

 

so from where i am. how much harder does the game get? the wardogs seemed pretty tough. but i got through their scenes. i feel like im getting the hang of the game. but it still get annoying sometimes.

 Here's some manhunt beta trivia their was a beta weapon by the name of well nail bat the fun thing about this you can still get this weapon but you have to use the use of a popular glitch known as the "out of bounds" glitch although I won't talk about how do it thats a post for another day. But the executions are still the same animations as the regular bat. The reason I think this was removed was probably because the regular bat and the bat with nails were to similar. You can get this bat in the asylum level.

I replayed the first one a few months ago, after playing it for the first time already about twelve years ago, the gameplay I think has aged badly, it feels slow and clunky, the stealth system is improvable although I think it's not bad. Unfortunately I can't play 2 on Xbox because there was never a version released, so I'll have to play it on PC. I'm afraid we won't see a third part, society is softer than ever and for reasons I'll never understand video games receive excessive censorship when you have a thousand times more violence and sex in movies that many kids happily go to the cinema to see.

I mean there's Hatred which is/was just as controversial, but that's more spree shooting while manhunt is like just brutality etc

The problem with a video game company getting too big is that they often end up leaving out content that can get them into scandals and even more so in this day and age, there is already talk that R* is planning to make the next installment of GTA less "offensive", so we shouldn't get our hopes up.

I think it will be really cool after GTA also maybe it will be hinted at because Carcer City will also include it I mean in GTA 6...

 

It would be good if you get some inspiration from GTFO,

evil Within,

darkwood,

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky ,

Velvet Assassin ,

Dead by Daylight,

The Dark Inside Me,

Outlast 2,

Friday the 13th: The Game,

 

Of course, with the bloody events that were in Manhunt 1

Playing Manhunt for the first time, having alot of fun with it on XSX and it has a frame rate boost making it even more enjoyable… just finished scene 5. Shouldn’t have skipped this game back in the day, but better late than never. 
 

Editing to not double post- I’m totally loving this game, stealth, knocking on walls and throwing stuff to divert attention and absolutely hacking these guys apart with a machete…. This game is going to easily be on my favorites list… I feel stupid right now overlooking this gem in the past.
