      WOW! I was at TJ MaxX, and a few years ago, I had seen Manhunter: New York, btu didnt think anythign of it. Then, recently I’ve been getting into old games, and kicked myself for not buying it. Went back today, and it was there! I quickly got it!! Its so nice to hold an old relic of the past in my hands. Only 5 BUCKS! To think, it’s been sitting there for 17 years!

      In it was two floppies, the ‘official manhunter field map’ of new york, ‘official manhunter field guide’, a mail-in survey, and an ‘if you have problems’ card. The box has seen better days, but its all entact, everythings there. The box is in OK shape, but minus all that, you can see everything clearly, no rips, just ware.

      Am I missing anything? And oh yeah, saw somwhere a pic of the contents and the field guide had a black cover! mine is just plain white.

      Cool buy… congrats! Dunno about the Field Manual… mine has a black cover too (I have a couple of copies, now I recall, but I’m almost certain all have black covers).

      Be glad you didn’t, like me, get the OzzieSoft budget version of Police Quest 3… where they left out the copy protection info in the manual!!!!! No matter who I contacted, nobody could help, until a year or so later I found the answer on a magazine cover CD (this is way back before I’d even heard of the internet). In fact, PQ seems to suffer this fate a lot… I recently bought a sealed copy of the PQ collection and found it too contained NO copy protection (or even manual, just a quickstart card thingy) at all!!!! In the old days, no probs ’cause I could’ve written to Sierra. Now… 🙁 One expects a chance of a ripoff when using Ebay, etc, but not buying new (even if outdated) games! LOL!

      Cheers,
