Manhunt 2 IGN Preview [Wii]

26 05 2007

Gaming Site; IGN, are the first ever people to publish a ‘hands on’ preview of the Nintendo Wii copy of Manhunt 2. And thanks to ProjectManhunt, they managed to take all the good stuff out of the article. Here it is:

Wii Controls:
• To perform an execution on the Wii build of the game you sneak up behind an enemy hold down the A button, similarly to the PS2 version, however as the execution kicks in you direct the killing through a series of button presses and movement gestures that are indicated on screen.
• Firearms are controlled by holding down the C button and aiming with the Wii Remote with ‘pixel-perfect accuracy’ and you tap the B button to fire. Cycling through weapons is handled by pushing down on the D-pad.
• You can lean left and right with rotations of the nunchuck attachment.

So what is exclusive to the Wii version?
• Interactive execution – the animations are played out through button and motion gestures.
• Exclusive weapons – razor, mace and broken bottle.
• Improved gore – blood splatters on the screen and covers Daniel. Daniel will become covering in blood, bruises, gashes, head wounds and gun shot wounds.
• Improved graphics – characters and environment are sharper

Here is one example of just how you will be taking a hunter down on the Wii build:
Or, if you’d prefer, you can use a saw blade and cut upward into a foe’s groin and buttocks, motioning forward and backward with the Wii remote as you go.

Matt goes on to say that the Wii version is already running at a steady 30 frames per second, and runs in both 480p and 16:9 widescreen modes.

Additional information about the game on all platforms:
Rockstar has not given you control of the camera in any version of the game because it wanted to maintain the cinematic quality of the experience and build suspense. The auto-camera is smart and shoots the action from behind Danny’s back, although you can twist the nunchuk left or right to lean the view in either direction.

Whao! Manhunt on the Wii sounds extremely cool, and is definately the better version out of the three [PS2, PSP, Wii] The preview also came bundled with 5 brand new screens from the Wii version.
