The Rangers, an elite law enforcement organization, pose the only real threat to this sinister plot. To thwart their investigations, the conspirators orchestrate a campaign to undermine the Rangers with infiltration, sabotage, and false incrimination. Ranger Mace Griffin is framed in such a set-up and sentenced to ten years on Penal Colony Delta. In prison, Mace becomes introverted and embittered, and swears to take revenge on those who have wronged him. With the dissolution of the Rangers, law enforcement is left to the Enforcers, who prove incapable of controlling the Vagner System's criminal element. To deal with the rising wave of crime, a new organization emerges: the Guild of Bounty Hunters. A group of both terrans and aliens, it includes former members of the police and military, along with known criminals. The guild is not particular about who joins?as long as they have proven combat ability. Intent on revenge, Mace Griffin sets up as a bounty hunter. The benefits are threefold: a constant stream of cash, access to classified information, and a license to explore the Vagner Frontier System and find out who was behind his downfall and that of the Rangers.

  1. A good first-person shooter. The storyline maybe a bit familiar, but the new settings and the way Rollins expresses himself all add up to a very enjoyable time.
  2. 74
    The lack of secrets and multiplayer modes also means an utter lack of replay value, but I felt nothing but satisfaction at the rousing conclusion.
  3. Despite being a rough composite of a half dozen other first-person shooters without much personality of its own, Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter is still pretty good.
  4. For 50 bucks, you could either buy Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter, or spend some time in the used games bin and track down a more entertaining FPS and a more entertaining space flight sim (and probably have 10 bucks to spare.)
  5. The characters and monotonous visuals are dull, uninteresting and cliché (especially lead character Mace Griffin). And the absence of any multiplayer options severely hampers Bounty Hunter’s replayability in the long run.
  6. Cheat Code Central
    50
    Not only unoriginal but flawed in its execution. It can be fun in spurts but it fails to sustain any momentum.
  7. For all it brings to the table - space combat, Halo's shield, varied levels - not one single aspect is truly worthy of praise.

    An all round solid game. With decent to good graphics, an awesome (however cliche) storyline, and a terrific music score, Mace Griffin: An all round solid game. With decent to good graphics, an awesome (however cliche) storyline, and a terrific music score, Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter is a great game. The gameplay is linear, but then again, if you are a bounty hunter, and have a target, you don't want to daddle around so much. This game brings about challenges and ideas that most FPS games don't supply. Expand

BO2 like graphics, not as good. You can fly a space-ship which is sweet. It's hard but worth as hot, it's better than Red Faction in my opinion. I've seen this game get some negative reviews, but I'm thinking it's because people find it to hard. It's a hard game, but It's fun once you try it and challenge yourself with it. Who doesn't like flying in a space-ship? Expand

    This is easily the most overhyped game I have ever played. A below average FPS made even worse by poor controls, ridiculously bad AI, This is easily the most overhyped game I have ever played. A below average FPS made even worse by poor controls, ridiculously bad AI, grenades that bounce like superballs and mission objectives made too difficult by the above. Rumor said this was going to be "GTA in Space." It ain't even Doom in Space. It is just bad. Expand
