Product Description

From Amazon.ca

Through Jango Fett--father of Boba Fett--players will plunge into the dark, deadly world of a bounty hunter. Inspired by events between Episode I and Episode II, Star Wars: Bounty Hunter presents an original, compelling, third-person action experience that establishes Jango Fett's place in the Star Wars galaxy and his connection to the notorious Clone Army. The game draws players into Jango Fett's sinister and seedy world, where thieves and assassins thrive. Using his cunning and a host of deadly skills, Jango Fett ventures into the rarely explored dark side of the Star Wars universe to track down the elusive leader of a mysterious and deadly cult. All the while, he'll compete against a brutal rival from his past in a quest to capture the ultimate bounty, dead or alive.

Gameplay emphasizes intense combat and physical action in the relentless pursuit of prey across six fantastic worlds and 18 levels. Jango Fett faces off against an onslaught of the worst scum in the universe, including crime lords, corrupt politicians, and enemies of various species. He is equipped with an arsenal of powerful weapons such as dual blaster pistols, a flamethrower, missiles, and a distinctive jet pack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool Game! Nov. 16 2003
By A Customer
Despite what others have said, I believe that this is one of the best Star Wars games ever created. First of all, who wouldn't want to have a jetpack and suit of armor covered in cool gadgets. I love the gameplay. It's pretty classic shoot-em-up, Star Wars style. The only downsides are the animation, while still excellent, is not on par with other games, such as Rouge Leader. Also, the levels are very long with no way to save in the midst of playing. Otherwise, I love this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent GCN Title Feb. 7 2003
By A Customer
I've seen a lot of reviews that have really put this game down. I just don't get it. Bounty Hunter is definitely the best game that I've gotten for my GCN.
First off, I have to say that the in-game movies are simply, unarguably the best in any game ever released. Both the voice acting and on-screen graphics are unmatched by anything. The in-game graphics are not on the level of some game like Star Fox Adventures or Metroid Prime but I have to say that they are definitely above average, and do a good job of capturing the Star Wars universe. Each level has its own special feel. The best one is Coruscant, which you must see to believe. If you look up, you see towering skyscrapers lit up with holographic signs, with multiple levels of sky traffic.
Graphics: 8/10
The sound is certainly the best I have heard yet in a GCN title. Skywalker Sound did a great job with this title. All of the classic Star Wars sound effects, from lightsabers to blasters to hyperdrives, are perfectly done. The voice acting is even better, which you have to see for yourself.
Sound: 10/10
The gameplay is what a lot of people have complained about. I can't understand why. It is FUN. It gets repetitive occasionally, but let me tell you, toasting 50 guys with a flamethrower, shooting a bunch of toxic darts, leaping through the air with your jetpack while shooting twin blasters and then finally launching a guided missile does NOT get boring very quickly. The levels are long and between the length of the 18 levels and the many bonuses (including some very funny outtakes) this game should last you quite a while.
Gameplay: 9/10
Replay Value: 8.5/10
Overall, this game is certainly a title any Star Wars fan or anybody seeking excellent action/adventure games should get. If the other reviews have discouraged you, then rent it first. But certainly don't let Bounty Hunter, one of the best GCN titles to date, pass you by.
OVERALL: 9.5/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Hunt Jan. 24 2003
Become Jango Fett, the toughest, most efficient, ruthless, cunning - and sleekest looking - bounty hunter to ever stalk a quarry, in this exciting adventure game from the Jedi Knights at Lucas Arts. "Star Wars: Bounty Hunter" takes place between the first two Star Wars prequels and follows Jango as he is employed by Darth Tyranus to track down and eliminate a deranged renegade Jedi who has become leader of a mysterious cult called the Bando Gora. Sandwiched between action-packed blaster-fests and bounty hunting exploits, you will learn much about Jango's past, find out how he came into possession of the Slave I, and run into familiar and new characters alike, such as Jango's arch-nemesis Montross, and the eccentric Toydarian, Rozatta. The cinema scene graphics are astounding, some rivaling the grandeur of the actual Star Wars films. The story, which reveals how Jango was selected to be the template for the clone army seen in "Episode II - Attack of the Clones", is very engaging, inspiring the impetus to complete each level in order to progress the plot. Temuera Morrison, the actor who portrayed Jango in "Attack of the Clones", lends additional realism by providing the voice for the title character. The no-nonsense Jango never deviates from his hard-boiled, adamantine persona. For the soundtrack, George Lucas' little helpers at the Skywalker Ranch have culled some of the most adrenaline-pumping action cues from John Williams' orchestral arsenal.
The 18 stages (six chapters of three stages) thrust you through a variety of planets and environments within the Star Wars universe, each with its own unique quality. Coruscant and Tatooine look as if they have been fused directly from the films, and the moon of Bogden has a deliciously dark atmosphere.

The visuals of the cutscenes are beautiful but the game itself does not take full advantage of the Gamecube's graphics capabilities. The polygons, textures and scenery range from "blah" to "very good". A few graphic elements stand out as excellent and make the game worthwhile: Jango's metallic suit looks very slick from any angle, and the missiles are an incredible weapon with stunning sound effects and accompanying animation. The flame-thrower and it's horrid effect on people is ultra-realistic--for this reason alone I believe THIS GAME SHOULD BE RATED MATURE, NOT TEEN.
The game also neglects to take full advantage of the GC's analog controller stick, there are only two speeds: walk or run depending how far the joystick is pushed and the speed of rotate left or right is fixed and way too fast. For me, on the levels which require execution of a series of jumps across chasms while avoiding blaster-fire and so on, the greater challenge is to overcome the poor control rather than any challenge of solving the levels themselves.
However, poor joystick movement is all-too typical of Playstation games ported to GC and N64, so if you are used to it this may not be an issue for you at all. I feel it is a downright shame the programmers didn't design the joystick responsiveness and sensitivity more like "Perfect Dark" or "GoldenEye" (both are N64 games which do take full advantage of Nintendo's analog joysticks)--if they had I would have rated this game 5/5. Otherwise I agree with the reviews posted by "Marc H. from Napa, CA" and "Bryce Mohan".

1.0 out of 5 stars What were they thinking??? (SMACK!!)
I don't think the people who developed this game actually played it before putting it on the market. To start, for a "lucasarts" game, it has very poor game-play graphics. Read more

Star wars bounty hunter is really fun. There is noting better then scaning a bounty, flying at him with a jetpack, and then deciding weather you want him dead or alive? Read more
