Manhunt 2 is so gruesome Britain banned it. But they banned a fun game.
You portray a scientist named Danny who was institutionalized by a nefarious group conducting secret experiments. You escape by slaying people in dark alleys and grungy buildings. The ever-escalating panoply of weaponry at your fingertips begins with a syringe and advances to knives, meat hooks, baseball bats and a gun whose bullets set men on fire.
For an adult hardcore gamer such as myself, Manhunt 2 doesn't make me blink at its graphically interfaced "blood" and "guts." The killing can feel a bit like a one-trick pony: hide in a shadow, sneak, kill, repeat. But it's entertaining for those of us not offended by what others call crass.
What is crass? That's a subjective determination. I didn't flinch at the joke where, when you're offing a guy, he pleads, "Who'll feed my cats?" That just made sense to me, but I have cats.
