    Look, John H, Daniel C and Pizza the Hutt. Are you sure you're playing the same game as me? I can't even live with you giving it a 2, never mind Pepperoni man over here giving it a zero! It rules, no one can beat it for blasting, and probably one of the best games ever. Made up your mind yet, you three?

    Lucasarts was once well-known in the gaming industry for creating some of the most compelling, innovative, and outlandishly fun experiences in history. As sad as it is to see them go, you can always do yourself a service by going back and seeing what made them so great in the first place.

As sad as it is to see them go, you can always do yourself a service by going back and seeing what made them so great in the first place. Bounty Hunter is one such example that shows their prowess in crafting an intricate and original story housing some of the most memorable (if not the most memorable) characters seen in any of their games. Following Jango on an adventure that includes him assassinating corrupt senators, infiltrating a crime-lord's barracks, delving into Coruscant's underworld to find where certain dangerous drugs are being smuggled, and breaking into an asteroid-based prison are only a few of the levels you'll have a blast playing through, however challenging they may be. Rest assured you won't feel disempowered or bored on your travels; Jango has access to all of the galaxy's more sophisticated weaponry and gadgets, from silent toxic darts, to a whipcord for roping up enemies, to his signature flamethrower and dual pistols. You'll even get jetpack upgrades along the way. In addition to the already-stellar narrative, you can take on side-missions in each level by scanning NPCs (who roam the map, going about their daily business), and find out whether any of them have a bounty on their head. Once they're marked, you can cash in for the reward, dead or alive, but the ensuing chase is where the real fun comes in. All in all, Bounty Hunter serves to show us just how fun a Star Wars game can be, and makes Episode 2 just a tad more bearable when you understand who Zam Wessel is, and why Jango ever decided to join Count Dooku (which the game's CG cut-scenes serve to explain in fine detail). Prepare to be dazzled. You owe it to Lucasarts to play one of their greatest games. Expand

    My only complaint is that what's the point of getting all that money if u cant use it? Otherwise an awesome game.

    A fun shooting game, this is the game of my childhood, however there are quite clearly the dumbest of flaws present in this game.

    The fighting mechanics are decent, and the graphics are decent for the time it was made back in 2002, but sloppy AI and the unfinished final chapter took a steaming dump on this almost masterpiece.

    This game would get a negative zero if i was allowed to... bad graphics, horrible control, glitches galore... lucas should get a lightsaber up his ass for being a greedy man. starwars movies also now suck big time and definitely aint looking forward to episode 3....

  1. Could have been great, but relies too heavily on the "Jango Fett is cool" idea, and doesn't have the depth of gameplay needed to hold most people's interest.
  2. 80
    Despite all the things Jango can do, control is streamlined and intuitive... A rock-solid action title that should keep Fett fans very happy.
  3. With an archaic graphics engine, dreadfully awful camera tracking, extensive load times, and some of the most atrocious mission challenges known to man, it becomes quite clear where this game went wrong. [Jan 2003, p.89]
