I'm Gaming Jay: Youtube gamer, let's player, retrogaming fan, and determined optimist... Join me in this series while I try out EVERY game in the book 1001 VIDEO GAMES YOU MUST PLAY BEFORE YOU DIE, before I die. The game review for each game will focus on the question of whether you MUST play this game before you die. But to be honest, the game review parts are just for fun, this series is more about the YouTube gamer journey. So let's play those classic retro games we grew up with, have fond memories of, or heard of but never got a chance to try! And with that said, the game review for today is...
Developer(s) Rockstar North
Platform(s) Playstation 2, Xbox, Windows
Genre(s) Stealth, Survival Horror
Rockstar took a lot of heat over the years for the violence and sex in Grand Theft Auto. You'd think that so much controversy might encourage them to tone things down a bit. But if anything, I think it did the opposite. Manhunt is a game about murder. Seriously. If you thought that the killing in Grand Theft Auto was violent, you ain't seen nothing yet.
So the story is that you're a convicted killer on death row, but you get pulled away at the last minute and brought into some underground gameshow of death, where you have to make snuff videos and kill people in brutally violent ways to earn points or respect or something... Oh, and your weapons? Plastic bags, shards of glass, baseball bats. Yup, you suffocate people with bags, gouge their eyes with glass, and beat them to death with baseball bats. No wonder this game was banned in Australia.
If this all sounds too intense for you, I think that's pretty normal actually. And so if you are not a fan of gratiutous violence, I would say skip this game, and skip my play through even. That said, this game is a pretty good stealth game actually. You have to be very aware of how much sound you're making and have to use shadows and corners to hide from enemies. Direct confrontation in this game usually ends with you getting beaten to death. So you have to be sneaky, and attack your enemies from behind. It's a well done if not occasionally frustrating game, but I think any fans of the stealth genre will greatly enjoy the gameplay here. And of course, it is a Rockstar game, so the quality of the graphics and sound and story are all top notch. So yeah, try it if this intrigues you. But don't blame me if it's too violent for ya! You've been warned.
➙ Must You Play It?
An intense stealth-based game about being a killer. It is a very violent game, so be warned, this is not a game for everyone. That said, the gameplay is quite fun and the shadow and sound mechanics are nice additions to the stealth genre.
