I started off distinctly cool, if not bored and frustrated by it. Having persevered with it, I am currently impressed and intrigued by its puzzles, and even becoming a bit nonchalant as I breeze through the occasional arcade section. In fact, I am so taken with it that I am determined to see it through to the end. And that says a lot for a game that is about as far removed from a traditional text adventure as Eugene Lacey is from solving one! Manhunter is a big game that comes on five disks for the ST - and there are thirteen for the PC version! Therefore it is expensive. But if you like the sound of it, and can afford the price, I urge you to rush out and buy one!
It won't win any prizes for graphics but it does create a realistic, if simplistic, atmosphere of a run down, oppressed metropolis. That it's spread across five disks belies the limited nature of the game.
Ein weiterer Schwachpunkt des Programms sind die Grafiken (PC und ST identisch), die zwar sehr zahlreich vorhanden, dafür aber von einer ziemlich schlechten Qualität sind. Insgesamt also ein herber Rückschlag, verglichen mit den jüngsten SIERRA-Veröffentlichungen, wie etwa Leisure Suit Larry II und King‘s Quest IV; die ich MANHUNTER in jeder Hinsicht vorziehen würde. Hätte man sich nicht so auf der wirklich spannenden (wenn auch nicht neuen) Story ausgeruht, so hätte sich MANHUNTER qualitativ sicherlich in die Galerie der ...-Quest-Spiele einreihen können. So aber reicht es nur zum Mittelmaß.
