About This Game

When John "Striker" Gullivan left the SAS, he's been far from thinking about retirement. A skilled sniper, veteran of many covert operations, he was ready to take on the less legal side of the "business".
Working closely with his friend Max - one of the best hackers there are - he quickly earned his fame among other mercenaries and private agencies. Yet, he was cautious enough to avoid standing openly against any legal government. He was even taking semi-official jobs that were too dangerous or too politically risky for any government agenda. This was an easy life.
Until now.


  • First Person Perspective dynamic adventure shooter powered by the advanced Argon 5 technology.
  • Play the role of a famous mercenary through 5 large, different chapters (14 huge levels total): Iranian hidden nuclear materials' processing plant, Moscow Trade Center where the trouble begins, City Dockyard hit-and-flee mission, Baykonur Cosmodrome shootout, and Iraq terrorist cave search for a missing VIP.
  • Game reflects John's sniper expertise. At the beginning of each chapter he is given 2 sniper rifles - a silenced Arctic Warfare as a primary weapon and additionally one specialised rifle that fits the chapter best, selected from a variety of choices. Additional rifles range from a very fast, semi automatic Saiga with sniper scope to a heavy and deadly Barrett .50.
  • Game simulates bullet ballistics depending on gravity, wind and bullet initial velocity for more realistic experience.
  • Using silencer on the Arctic Warfare or on John's personally modified P99 pistol may be useful at times, as the enemies fully depend on their eyes and ears - and they cannot chase what they don't see nor hear.
  • Playing the game as a "standard" shooter using automatic rifles and pistols taken from dead enemies is of course possible as well - still using sniper tactics over longer distances is easier.
  • Sophisticated enemy AI allows them to fight in groups, using different weapons and explosives, alarming and supporting each other, using terrain and objects in their tactics.
  • Game is powered by advanced technology and renderer that produces beautiful images, full of light, beautiful atmospheric effects, realtime water, reflections, shadows and different, realistic surface materials complete with vivid, living environments with animated plant life, insects and birds.
  • Convincing storyline and action objectives. The player is constantly in contact with his HQ, which feeds him with data and changes mission objectives as he goes.

Do not understand so much hate!!!

Yes so far I have not played that long. But I played Chernobyl underground whihc is the prequel of this game. For $1.00 I have no complains but praises. Shame on people who paid that kind of money and complain. What would they expect for cents? BF? RB6? This game really takes me away from "complex" and elaborated stories. It takes me back to simple shooters, kind of old school. My only regret is that the Stereoscopic compatibilty is not that great. Good game to get away and do something different. And please do not come to conclusions about my review from my short library since this is my second steam account which I want to use for indie and cheap games.

(warning long and could get boring)
i would like to say this game is a ♥♥♥♥ show but if you put it up against the works of digital homicide you can actually appreciate something and that is the fact it looks like some effort was present.
minus the some effort the game is dull and just about all the negative reviews here sum it up pretty well.
so why did i buy it the negative reviews should have been the red flag. at the time i was really into cheap games and i will tell you getting a pretty broken but somewhat playable shooter for 52 cents sounded pretty good at the time * i had on average 70 cents in my steam wallet at the time*. some ♥♥♥♥♥ and giggles can come from it and this is the kind of ♥♥♥♥ you sit down and play with a bro completly drunk and laugh at. of course i can't recommend it for anything else. it doesn't really stand as a game and more as a joke that can get pretty old if played for more than 30 minute time frames. if anything this game is one of those 3 to 4 out of 10 games. there will always be worse yet in most situations it is pretty horrendous but some people still find a reason to play it. if i can find a use for it in my inventory then so can someone else.
do i expect you the reader to buy this and find a use ♥♥♥♥ no well unless you're an ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ like me that gifts bad games to friends for ♥♥♥♥♥ and giggles

might do a youtube review where i try to tear the game a new ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ someday

I swear to the Nine, I didn't play this garbage-tier game for 13 hours. I hit the exit button about 30 minutes in and the game's process just never ended. It was still somehow running in the background, and I didn't notice it until it was too late. Most of the time I spent "playing" this drivel was actually spent sleeping. I can't believe I wasted system resources on this.

Up yours, Dakota. First you get me Devil's Share, and then this. I got you MORROWIND for Christmas. Morrowind! You know, one of the best RPGs of all time? I get you that, and you get me Devil's Share and Manhunter. Why we're even still friends is a mystery that will baffle even the most resolute and resourceful of anthropologists for years to come.

The fact that I have this game thanks to you, Dakota, is proof that ginger people don't have souls.

Oh boy where to start!
just before i start this i was on the urge to commiting sucide (jk lol xd)
1) the game just about loads.
2) the music... the music kill's your ears.
3) the gun models take up half the god dam screen.
4) i didn't know how 'Davies' looks like so i killed him and i had to start the mission again...
5) when you get dropped of it looks like you hovered of instead
6) you are so close to the Enemies they give you sniper rifles that zoom in so ♥♥♥♥ing close that you can see the 'good' detail on the Enemies.

Im Pretty Sure That Theres More But I Just Got Pass The Cut Sence When You Meet Up With Davies Then I Stopped...


One Last Word Before I Go. My friend brought this for me as a gag xD

If you are a sucker for bad games (like me)... this is the winner hands down.

It's so bad, that it's so good.

I liked it, shut up.

Also, still buy this on a sale.

It reminds me of every bad fps that should be free. (I'm looking at you District 187)

I will recommend buying this piece of ♥♥♥♥!

♥♥♥♥ ass game.
"Press any key to start"
I press space bar and my computer overheats. When I restart it the game says I failed and have to start again. Start a new game. Game is still saved at the last games checkpoint where I can no longer spawn in.
♥♥♥♥ off devs

0.8/8 Manhunter.exe can not communicate

Finally got game working by reinstalling.

I only played the first two levels, but I can't imagine that the rest are much different. It's not a terrible game, but it's not really good or unique in any aspect. The $5 pricetag more than makes sense, and I should hope that no one would buy it with high expectations given that price.
