When it comes to controversy, Grand Theft Auto has taken quite a beating. But one of Rockstar North's other projects took on just as much heat if not more - with only two games in the series. Manhunt
has finally arrived on the PlayStation Network under the PS2 Classics section. For those who managed to nab a copy or those that heard about this game, now is the time to pick it up for cheap on current-gen consoles.
"As James Earl Cash, you're a death row inmate who awakens from the lethal injection chamber to discover he's met a fate perhaps worse than death. As the star in a sick kill-or-be-killed reality TV show, your fate is left in the hands of serial creepo Lionel Starkweather. Evade, fend off, and turn the tables on the hordes of killers out for your head."
You can get Manhunt for $9.99 / €9.99 / £7.99 on PSN alongside a number of other Rockstar classics previously released. Also look for the Warriors to release in the near future as well. Join us at the Grand Theft Auto V forums
