Parents, are you seriously considering buying this for your children under the age of 17? Seriously? You know that this is the sequel to the only PS2/Xbox game to feature full frontal male nudity, right? And that it's themed around dangerous brain surgery that turns regular people into psychopathic killers? And that the game moves to such memorable locales as a snuff club, porno theatre, and adult video store? And if all that hasn't dissuaded you from buying this for your children, feel free to call your local police department and turn yourself in for child endangerment right now.

Fans of the first Manhunt will find this game the ultimate mixed bag. The story is a great improvement over the first, but the voice acting is a small step down. There's a much wider variety of kills, but none of them are actually visible. If you're a fan of the first, it's worth a try, but be forewarned, there's nothing as good as the Piggsy fight to be found anywhere on the disc.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers should be okay. You'll miss out on most of the incidental dialogue, but get the story delivered in subtitles. An onscreen radar means that you'll always be able to tell where your enemies are, so you won't have to rely on hearing them coming.

What can you say about a twenty-five-year-old girl who died?

Nothing relevant to this conversation, that's for sure! Because we're here to talk about (sorry, write and read about, respectively) GC_Danny, who's updating this profile for the first time in thirteen years!

So let's take a gander back at that time and see what's happened! In addition to writing hundreds of video game reviews, Dan produced a book that can be legally purchased by almost anyone! He also wrote two short films, two episodes of television, and two movies! Although, sadly, and through much fault of his own, the movies have yet to be released.

In addition to general game reviewing, he's also dabbled in more long-form work, writing some of the longest and most comprehensive game reviews of all time. Then there's his non-GameCritics blogging, where he's famous as the world's foremost expert on the TV show Criminal Minds, as well as the co-host of a weekly podcast - he's even working on a new videogame/critical experiment, which you can find out more about here!

If all that wasn't enough, just a few months ago he rebranded himself as 'The Hidden Object Guru', hoping to stake another claim of ultimate expertise, this time over a genre of casual games! Will he be successful? Only time will tell, but you're free to join the thrilling ride at his YouTube channel!
