    The FPS's non-stop arcade-style shooting is a fun break from a wave of "press yourself flat against the wall and look around the corner" sneak-around titles, but the clunky third-person fighting you have to do to take down the level bosses is goofy.
  2. This game is not very realistic and tries to combine arcade elements with a solid FPS backdrop and what happens is that this game looks contrived and stilted...This is a game to avoid.
  3. A flat-out crappy game. [Jan 2004, p.135]
  4. Fugitive Hunter seems to utilize random nonsensical damage, instead of the “target specific” kind, and the game’s defamation of the law of physics and its shoddy collision detection makes it seem like you’re constantly trekking through Jello. All that and no multiplayer. Bummer.
  5. Other than intentionally funny games like "Day of the Tentacle" and "Monkey Island," I don’t think I’ve ever laughed more at a game than I did at Fugitive Hunter.
  6. It just isn't any good. With so many gameplay problems, lack of challenges, and an absolute treaure trove of better FPS titles out there for PS2, there's no reason to give this one a second thought. [Jan 2004, p.46]

    Broken missions, pathetic animations, a sorry fighting system, and a sorrier button-mashing mode.

    It's a mindless shooter FPS. The game obviously does not pretend to be anything else than a cheap thrill - and for this, it is OK. It is It's a mindless shooter FPS. The game obviously does not pretend to be anything else than a cheap thrill - and for this, it is OK. It is not a "must play game", and there is no apparent reason to buy/rent this game, since it does not have anything special, but if you do, dont worry, it is not that bad. Expand

    Fugitive Hunter is the perfect example of crappiness. The fighting and shooting controls are both clunky, inaccurate, and annoying. SpeakingFugitive Hunter is the perfect example of crappiness. The fighting and shooting controls are both clunky, inaccurate, and annoying. Speaking of annoying, the voice acting is hilariously terrible, your protagonist is about as dorky as it gets and he never stops spewing lame phrases, the enemies and characters are absolute stereotypes, with choppy animation for character models. Overall, the game just has a crappy feel from start to finish that is very noticeable, It's clear that they wanted to pass a crappy game off as a playable one rather than take the time to improve it. Generic Shooter is a more appropriate name for this game than Fugitive Hunter. Expand
