Manhunt 2 is Rockstar's latest title to hit shelves in the near future, and Nathan over at TTGamer has managed to organize an early preview of it for us all to see if its just as gory and violent as the original (or hopefully even more so :P).
No doubt that all the recent reports of bans and restrictions on this upcoming title due to its excessive level of violence will only have even more people itchin' to get a hold of it.
The biggest downside is nothing to do with quality of the game, rather the platforms it will be released on. The PC, PS3 and XBOX 360 all miss out, with only the PSP, PS2 and Wii suppported. Bah Humbug!!!
The original release of Manhunt in 2003 didn't exactly mark the first time the game industry had been targeted for promoting violence - not even the first time Rockstar were targeted - but it certainly proved to be one of the more extreme cases in recent times, receiving restrictions and bans across multiple countries outside the US, ranging from age minimal's to outlawing possession altogether. This is because Manhunt was a very violent and gritty game not only in what it rendered visually, but also in its very premise, which was brutal killing more or less in a sport like fashion. Whether you loved it or hated it, you can prepare yourself for another onslaught as Manhunt 2 is fast approaching, and Rockstar have made it pretty clear not only are they not backing down from the gory standards set by the original, but if anything they are instead pushing the limits even further.
