Next week, the roster of downloadable Rockstar titles in the PS2 Classics collection at PlayStation Store is set to get bigger - and grislier - with the addition of Rockstar North's dark stealth thriller Manhunt, originally released 10 years ago. Beginning on May 14th Tuesday when the PSN Store does its weekly update (Wednesday for those in Europe), you'll be able to step back into the shoes of James Earl Cash, a Death Row inmate playing that most dangerous game of kill-or-be-killed at the mercy of the maniacal Lionel Starkweather.
Manhunt will be available from PSN for $9.99 / €9.99 / £7.99 and joins Bully and Red Dead Revolver, as well as all PlayStation 2 entries in the Grand Theft Auto and Midnight Club franchises, in the PS2 Classics category of PlayStation Store.
It will also soon be joined by The Warriors - stay tuned, Boppers...
For now, enjoy the original Manhunt trailers released in the summer of 2003 below - and special thanks to longtime fansite Project Manhunt.
The Advertising Council's latest update features 10 more classic radio spots from the world of Liberty City, Vice City and San Andreas radio - including the very first commercials added from 2008 leading off with Electrolytes Extreme Sports Drink and everybody's favorite robotic maintenance machine the El Chamuco Roboto.
Hear them all - along with more from throughout the years at www.rockstargames.com/advertisingcouncil.
This is Blaine County, a vast scrubland just outside of the fictional west coast city of Los Santos, a garish, hyperactive pastiche of Los Angeles, California... We were told Grand Theft Auto V was going to be big --purportedly enough virtual acreage to fit in the maps of Red Dead Redemption, GTAIV and GTA: San Andreas-- but being told doesn’t quite prepare you for the sheer scale of the thing. And this is a just a small chunk of brushland, a speck on a map that, for the first time in the series, is completely open to you from the very beginning."
Each character has their respective roles. It was pretty cool to see the player shoot off the rocket as Trevor, and then switch down to Michael just as the rocket hit its target. You're going to want to switch between characters to take advantage of their skills as the enemy AI has greatly improved. Cops will try to flank you, get to higher ground, and communicate with one another, all in an effort to make for a fun challenge."
Wow. Apparently created by Brazilian fan artist Eduardo Favaro and entitled 'Todos os personagens da série GTA', this is an assembly of GTA characters from across titles and game universes ranging from the usual suspects (Niko, CJ, Tommy..) to the most underground of the underworld (Timur, King Courtney, Bubba...) - and all entirely sketched in MS Paint.
Props as well to Brazilian Facebook fan page Grand Theft Auto V FC for helping bring it to light.
