  1. I can't shake the feeling that Star Wars: Bounty Hunter started off as a grand and ambitious project that got pushed out into space before it was ready.

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

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. Full Review »

The only thing holding this back for me are graphics that don't really hold up in my opinion, but it doesn't deter from the experience. Full Review »

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.
