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.

Features:

  • 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.

System Requirements

    Minimum:
    • OS: Windows XP/Vista/7
    • Processor: Pentium Dual Core processor or similar
    • Memory: 1 GB RAM
    • Graphics: Video Adapter compatible with DirectX 9.0c (Pixel Shader 3) with 512 MB RAM

Product received for free
it runs as if my computer is an iphone 4

even if you ignore that it isn't fun at all.

I will give this game props for the voice acting though. it will give you a bit of a giggle while you cry about how much you aren't enjoying yourself.

Overall the game seems very clunky and unpolished. It isn't great, but neither is it the worst out there. I think it would still be worth a play through if you like shooters and can get it on a weekend deal for a couple of bucks.

However, I really can't recommend it even for a buck or two, because of the strange head-bobbing movement that can't be shut off.

This extremely unrealistic bobbing motion, combined with the non-adjustable and too-narrow FOV, makes me want to puke-- literally.

I don't think I've ever felt nauseous from a game before, but this one makes me feel like blowing chunks after a few minutes.

Here is my legitamate review for this game. It wasn't too bad... it just wasn't very good. If you are looking for a game with even the slightest bit of strategy, this isn't for you. But if you are lloking for a game in which you just click on the enemies 'till they die, then this is for you. Over all, this game was OK, even a little fun for a while, so I do reccomend.

Back in the day....there was a company called 'Groove Games'....that put out loads of budget titles for $20 or less. Most of them were poorly made....but they still had a certain charm to them....kind of like all of the killer shark movies that the 'SyFy' channel has begun to crank out on a yearly basis. The games were very basic....but they worked....which is more than "Manhunter" can claim. When you start the first mission....there is some spoken dialogue that is supposed to give you some insight into what you are supposed to be doing....but there is some sh***y Iranian orchestra music blaring which drowns everything else out. You start off in a helicopter and are supposed to be sniping some targets from the air....but good luck with that. But at least you seem to be invulnerable while in the air....'cause I kept getting shot over an over and nothing happened. After a couple of minutes of this bullsh**....the helicopter finally lands and as soon as your feet touch the ground....you will know just how broken the game actually is. First up....the walking. Your character walks like he is riding a pi**ed off bull....and you have to somehow hold on for eight seconds. More annoying than that.....is the jumping. This game has the exact same gravity as The Moon. You can jump high and float in the air for several seconds. Want to jump rooftop to rooftop? Well guess what....you can. Just keep in mind that if you cross any invisible barriers in your travels....the game will give you a few seconds to get back before it makes you start all over. Which is something that you may have to do often.....since when I followed my A.I. teammate towards a hill.....the game demanded that I stay on track....before ultimately informing me that I failed the mission. The music is terrible and can not be turned off. Sure.....there is an option to do so in the main menu....but it doesn't work. The weapon selection is bewildering to say the least. You start the first mission with a silenced pistol....a sniper rifle....and um.....another sniper rifle. You can pick up AK-47's from enemy soldiers....which kind of made me feel like the Doom Marine for a second....since that was pretty much the last time that I remembered carrying a huge surplus of weapons in a FPS. This game has absolutely nothing going for it....and it's not even good in a bad kind of way.

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

EDIT:
Finally got game working by reinstalling.
Gets past first cutscene
Spawns in ground and cannot move...

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.
