Most of us understand if you don't like the game ... it's just that you give it too LOW a score... considering there are alot of xbox games that do deserve a 4 rating!
I think the game is about stealth killing ...so you get punished for having to do hand to hand combat!
The game is sort of like sneaking around and killing people ... even when you stop walking you hear your heartbeat and the 'PUNKS" talking ...telling how they are gonna get you ... or ... talking to themselves.
The game is trying to create the feeling we all had as kids where we are sneaking in the bushes trying to pull a PRANK on someone!
This game is Not ninja Gaiden.. and most games are not in the 95 percent class ... but this game is not a Dog either.
I forgot to add ... in NINJA Gaiden it's about fighting against others in combat ... in this game ...it's the opposite! You have to be a cunning, back-stabbing, cold-blooded killer who only has the advantage from BEHIND and DARKNESS is your Friend! Your graphics rating of 2 ... is also so wrong! It's called "atmosphere" ... the producers are creating a nitty, gritty, depressing, atmosphere on purpose. Dead or Alive 3 and Ninja Gaiden are Japanese clear, very beautiful graphics ...again for the "atmosphere' ... the charactors are "good" healthy and wholesome!
This guy in Manhunt is a convicted Murderer who is on the prowl for victums ...and only is a STAR when he kills from BEHIND ... that's why the cutscenes when you are killing in stealth ... and NONE for average face to face fighting! This post has been edited by rgtaa: May 3 2004, 01:44 PM
