  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. Terrorist action is undermining the system. Your job is to pile in and blow them away. It’s a simple task, rendered wonderfully tense by the brooding background music and the amazingly detailed scenery. It’s almost like controlling your own Hollywood blockbuster.
  3. Everything that worked in the first game has been improved, and everything that didn't has been fixed or discarded. Is there anything new here? No. It's the exact same game that Headhunter was, only better.

    The execution of this game is so poor it almost makes me cry, because it COULD have been fantastic. This game has a fantastic premise: a The execution of this game is so poor it almost makes me cry, because it COULD have been fantastic. This game has a fantastic premise: a Fritz Lang - like Metropolis, an interesting backstory with deep characters and conflicts in a a divided society - "above" and "below"- sadly all which is good about the game is strangled at birth. Terrible targeting system, numb AI, and the worst stinker of them all: puzzles from Uranus. Add to this glitches and buggy graphics (the character shadows have a life of their own) and stretch the whole thing out over 30 hours and you have the heartbreaker that is HH:R. And as a previous poster commented, the intro is horrendously long: 12 min. of cut-scenes before you get to play! Full Review »

    Gameplay was refreshingly fun, body physics were highly tuned to realism, very atmoshpereic, I liked getting emotionally attached to the Gameplay was refreshingly fun, body physics were highly tuned to realism, very atmoshpereic, I liked getting emotionally attached to the characters (as they span over from the firstheadhunter) the only thing I didn't like about HR was the exclusion of the MOTORCYCLE damnit.
