RAW, K-1 and Manhunt...

Updated the Puroresu section with my thoughts on this week's edition of RAW, some puroresu news & thoughs and a K-1 show I watched on TV. Check it out. I also just received one new All Japan Pro Wrestling tape and you can check out the card on the my collection page. I'll put up a review after I watch it. It's the show where Great Muta beat Genichiro Tenryu for the Triple Crown and will be my first look at AJPW after Mutoh took over.

PS2 Game Review: MANHUNT
From the makers of GTA: Vice City comes Manhunt, not to be confused with the reality show that featured John Cena as 'Big Tim'.
In Manhunt, you play as Cash. A supposedly executed prison inmate. But the execution was only a cover as Cash is taken to several remote locations to take part in a series of reality snuff films where he literally has to fight for his life to stay alive.
Stealth is the name of the game as you constanly hide to avoid contact with the different gangs that inhabit each area. And its a very colourful cast of psychotic sickos. Your encouraged to 'execute' them in a manner of sick and grissly fashions depending on the type of weapon your holding. Cave their heads in with a baseball bat, decapitate their heads with a machete, blow their brains out with a shotgun, slice up their loins with a sickle....You get the picture. Sometimes you are given other objectives like protecting a homeless drunk that's paired up with you and he must survive if your to get past the checkpoints.
There was a lot of high hopes for this game since Rockstar made it. But your looking a bit too high if your expecting something along the lines of GTA:VC. Most of the scenes require you to just hide for the most part and execute the gang members one by one as you make your way through the 20 levels of the game. Patience is required as you spend a lot of time hiding in the shadows waiting for the right time to bait them in and take out your hunters, and it can get a bit repeatative.
I really enjoyed playing Manhunt, and the option to replay a level at anytime after you complete it is a good way to not have to play the game all over again just to better your clear times and skip to some of the more fun levels like "Kill The Rabbit". I recommend it if your into stealth games and have alot of patience. Of course it doesn't hurt if you have a bloodlust to blow heads off....
