Manhunter: New York was by all accounts one of the most unique adventure games of its time. In addition to a brand new approach to Sierra adventures, it featured a very original story, a very good atmosphere, but also weak graphics, interface and gameplay. I would think that it was the gameplay that sentenced the game to obscurity, which, however, was not deserved.

True. That's exactly the reason i never seriously considered playing this game, as it looked too boring and actionless. I'm sure it's due to my narrow-mindedness at the time, but now at least 15 years have passed (can't believe it!) and i still feel the same about it. Perhaps one day...
Cheer up! Remember the less you have, the more there is to get.
