  • Summary: Twenty years after the devastation caused by the Bloody Mary Virus, a new order has emerged, based on two distinct but totally independent worlds, divided by the ultimate consumerist society - 'Above' and 'Below'. Headhunter: Redemption continues the gripping story of Jack Wade, a veteran Headhunter keeping order in a futuristic world overrun with unchecked consumerism, vicious organized crime and mind-controlling mass media. When Jack and his protégé, the sassy, streetwise Leeza X, stumble upon an arms smuggling operation that threatens the status quo, they must work together to deliver an oblivious world from impending catastrophe, confronting their darkest fears beneath a shroud of evil that blankets the city.

  1. While accomplished would be a better adjective than flamboyant when it comes to gameplay, Amuze deserves kudos for the cinematic quality afforded the game's script and musical score.
  2. It might not satisfy quite like the third-person shooter action games of late but the game offers lengthy missions that just get better the further you go. It’s a shame that many of the original game’s flaws return in full force in this sequel.
  3. The game's kick-ass atmosphere and excellent visuals seem to have taken development time away from the play mechanics. [Nov 2004, p.88]
  4. The whole shooting match feels kinda Xeroxed, but for fans of the genre, it's worth the rental after a long day at the rock pile.
  5. It’s always a shame when a game arrives perfectly playable and pleasant enough to glide through without too much in the way of frustration, while at the same time being devoid of actual thrills or jaw-dropping moments.
  6. Just all over the board in terms of gameplay, graphics and sound. One minute you will enjoy it and the next you will be wondering what you miss because you are stuck and cant get to the next level.
  7. The PlayStation 2 version of Redemption also suffers from some technical flaws, such as occasionally visible polygon seams and constant, noisy disc access.
