Manhunt - Game Information


Manhunt was formally announced at E3 2003. In the press release for Manhunt, Rockstar said to expect the following from the game:

• World-class gameplay.
• Incredible production values.
• Rockstar North's traditional sardonic sense of humour.
• Manhunt will explore the depths of human depravity in a vicious, sadistic tale of urban horror.
For months after the announcement of Manhunt, Rockstar played on the mystery surrounding the game. Only giving out little pieces of information at the time, many guessed what the game was – unsuccessfully. Knowing that the gaming media and general public alike were intrigued by the game Rockstar instead put its eminent attention on explaining the inspiration behind the game rather than flat-out giving the game away.
Inspiration behind the development of Manhunt included such literature as Richard Connell's ‘The Most Dangerous Game’ and Steven King’s ‘The Running Man’. Films such as 8MM, Jacob’s Ladder, Marathon Man, Romper Stomper, Surviving the Game and reality television shows all served as visual and stylistic research. Despite taking reference from many sources of media, the main form of influence on the game lays in moods, scenes, tension and mass market voyeurism.
As the months wore on previews for the game started to appear in magazines and on online publications. For the most part all of which were highly positive with Manhunt receiving much praise for its highly innovative use of sound, excellent enemy AI, murky themes and expertly created level design.
Manhunt was released in November 2003 to both critical and commercial success. The Chicago Tribune named Manhunt as being the ‘most important video game of the last five years.’
On the surface Manhunt appears to be a pretty simple game. The truth is that the game is anything but. Manhunt is an expertly crafted gaming experience with high production values and incredibly polished game play.


Official Game Synopsis


"They just killed Cash. Now, they want to kill him again."
America is full of run down, broken rust-belt towns where nobody cares and anything goes. In Carcer City, nothing matters anymore and all that's left are cheap thrills. The ultimate rush is the power to grant life and take it away, for sport. This time James Earl Cash, you are the sport. They gave you your life back. Now, they are going to hunt you down.
You awake to the sound of your own panicked breath. You must run, hide and fight to survive. If you can stay alive long enough, you may find out who did this to you.
This is a brutal blood sport.
