  1. While the game is a bit on the linear side, it does a fantastic job of telling an interesting original story.

    There's not a lot of depth to it and the gameplay is repetitive but it's still a whole lot of fun and there are enough distractions to keep you entertained and interested right until the end.
  3. Oddly enough, hunting down targets isn’t integral to gameplay, it's completely optional.
  4. 70
    The targeting system is well executed, but the camerawork is not. In enclosed areas it can go ballistic, often pointing in a direction that obscures your enemies.
  5. Even though the game's overall execution leaves something to be desired, Bounty Hunter has its good points, and the GameCube version is markedly better than the PS2 release.
  6. 59
    A flawed, boring game design that fails to capitalize on the inherent coolness of its theme and character.

    Flat control, annoying fish-eye perspective, and a schizophrenic camera that never settles down. [Jan 2003, p.80]

Controls are great, only theJetpack(!), good graphics & art style, somewhat of a survival atmosphere and a solid, entertaining gameplay. Controls are great, only the camera acts a bit strange when shooting in small rooms, which are luckily quite rare. Ammo is also rare, adds a nice challenge. Not an easy game, specially towards the end.
    Although there is a lot to discover, -1 point because of too short story for no multiplayer (which would've been fun). No idea why it has such bad ratings. The Gamecube version I played was technically totally fine.

Sure, it was linear and it was almost impossible to snag every bounty in the game without killing them, but the weapons were well-designed and the jet-pack was fun and useful without making the game too easy. The ease of the control-scheme on the GCN controller surpasses that of many Lucas Arts Games. Expand
