  1. While the game is a bit on the linear side, it does a fantastic job of telling an interesting original story.
  2. There's not a lot of depth to it and the gameplay is repetitive but it's still a whole lot of fun and there are enough distractions to keep you entertained and interested right until the end.
  3. Oddly enough, hunting down targets isn’t integral to gameplay, it's completely optional.
  4. 70
    The targeting system is well executed, but the camerawork is not. In enclosed areas it can go ballistic, often pointing in a direction that obscures your enemies.
  5. Even though the game's overall execution leaves something to be desired, Bounty Hunter has its good points, and the GameCube version is markedly better than the PS2 release.
  6. 59
    A flawed, boring game design that fails to capitalize on the inherent coolness of its theme and character.
  7. Flat control, annoying fish-eye perspective, and a schizophrenic camera that never settles down. [Jan 2003, p.80]
