Manhunt 2 has gone from it's own death in the "AO" rating to it's resurrecting "M" rating. Now all of us horror fans can get a chance to play a really great game, and no, not JUST because of the kills. If you played through the first one you know that Manhunt (at least so far) really presents an involving story. Stories that really haven't been told before in Video Game media. Hopefully Manhunt 2 continues the 8mm genred tale just as well as M1. But what changes were made to the game to warrent executing the "AO" and securing the "M" rating? Thankfully Rockstar had given IGN demo time with the un-rated copy (wich turned AO after demoing), and also demo time with the "M" version, They wrote a couple page article
on what went where just so we would know what we are missing out on. Games Radar also got a before and after play and they gave their impression story
. I am just going to list off what they said changed, not alot of stuff, but they are sorta big... sorta.
- Added Dailogue! (possibly Wii exclusive) - says gamespot.com
- No longer can you pull a guys' "guys" of with the pliers
- No longer can you rip vertabrae out with the pliers
- Death Strikes pulsate strange colors, light flashes, motion blur, and darker lighting.
Seriously that is ALL that has been claimed to have changed, although IGN makes a pretty big deal about the Death Strike changes. Claiming it to be next to impossible to see anything going on now. I hope they over exaggerate a ittle bit on this because all the death strikes in M1 were clear as crystal. As far as I see it it might be more beneficial to the "feeling" of the game. See in the first game you wanted the "camera-glitch film" screens because of the voyeur "feeling", in M2 you aren't beeing filmed for film creation, you are insane
. If what they did matches up with what the teaser trailer showed, the game is going to rock harder than before. As for the mentioned plier kill, eh - it woulda been cool, but VERY uncrutial to the overall game I am sure. I am still pretty excited for the game, as the first one really blew me away, and this one looks promising. There are also a few new screens in the Manhunt 2 Gallery
- What are your thoughts on the changes? enough to warrent the rating change? wanted the game before but not now? didn't want it before but are now thinking about it?
