Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Hopkins needs to uncover a criminal organisation, headed by the infamous terrorist Bernie Berckson, gained possession of two nuclear missiles, threatening the US government. They stated that if their demands were not met, they would launch them against civilian targets. As the US government stubbornly refused to negotiate, the two missiles were launched on California causing untold casualties. And two years later the leader of the criminal organisation, Bernie Berckson, was captured by Special Agent Hopkins. Sentenced to death, Bernie Berckson was electrocuted twice. But, remaining inexplicably alive, he finally managed to escape. Bernie Berckson is leading a new criminal organisation. As Special Agent HOPKINS you are in charge to find and arrest him as anyone belonging to its gang. You'll be helped in your mission by Samantha Collins, who is both your girlfriend and another great agent of FBI.

B Hunter drops you in to the driving seat as the 'B Hunter' of the title; abounty hunter attempting to thrive amid hi-tech anarchy. With a corrupt government and a police force less concerned with the preservation of law and order than with lining their own pockets, it is your role as a Bounty Hunter to bring in the bad guys (and sometimes the innocent) and preserve some semblance of order. Along the way you'll earn the bounties that will enable you to upgrade your method of transport - the highly manoeuvrable Hoverjet - making you a more fearsome prospect to the criminals and other B Hunters you will encounter. You are able to upgrade weapons through a fully stocked shop full of futuristic weaponry that is more than able to reduce you enemies into shards of metal. Heavy artillery like the 'Fat Lady' missile will ensure that even buildings will have to be wary if you prove a success

3.0 out of 5 stars Buy this for Hopkins 29 Aug. 2001
I've played a lot of adventure games and I'd run out of games to play. I'd seen a review of Hopkins on a US website and it sounded OK so when I saw it for 4.99 I grabbed it. The graphics are good but dated. The style is pure comic book, the plot and dialogue are good, the music is excellent and I found the puzzles to be both good and plot related. ( I'm not keen on adventure games that have elaborate puzzles as door locks just to squeeze one more puzzle into the title ) There's a few spots where you have to do a bit of shooting but it's easy stuff, nothing like Indiana Jones. Basically it's a sound game, don't be put off by the dated graphics.
As for Bhunter, this is a game where you fly a hover car around a city shooting the bad guys. Visually it must have been good in it's day and it's still looks good. I couldn't get it ru run properly on my pc. The controls were far too sensitive and I just kept hitting walls. My son, who's a mean pc pilot had the same problem so it wasn't just lack of skill on my part. We gave up on Bhunter and still felt we'd got a good deal on this title.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best but good for the price 30 July 2004
Hopkins FBI is not a fantastic game, but I found it enjoyable if not short. For the 3 pound price tag I felt this was reasonable, otherwise I would not have bought it.
Generally the game is good but the lack of big budget is reflected in many areas of the game.
Voice acting reuses lines frequently and sometimes sounds jerky like its been edited together to make a sentance on atleast one line. The graphics are a reasonably lush mix of 2D, 3D (for a few cutscenes) and french style animation similar to in the broken sword games 1&2. Once again they could have been better if they're had been more money behind the game but if you take that and the date of release (1998) into account, they are ok.
Gameplay is good, nothing much too hard, a few puzzles too easy.
The major fault of the game is that its too short and underdeveloped. If they had put in a few minigames like being able to use the shooting range or even a more developed shooting gameplay other than click to fire then it would have been more satisfying. The plot also could have done with more to it and quite a few things never get explained, like the deaths of the scientists, only hinted at to be presumed. For these reasons I find it a little hard to get into the story, it wasn't as compelling as Broken Sword or Gabriel Knight, there was no frantic need to solve puzzles or particular love of the characters.
Its not a game I'd recommend for first time adventure gamers (see the two I mention above instead) but if you are seasoned and want a cheap distraction then you could do far worse than hopkins fbi.
Its also runs mostly fine under Win Xp with the patch from the official site and running under win95 compatibility too. There is even a gore patch for the UK on the site too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy this for Bhunter 14 Mar. 2002
By Rob
I bought the pack that had bhunter and a fishing game, not this one. But bhunter is just so good, the graphics are pretty good on the highest resolutions, and as a flight sim addict it's actually fairly easy to control with an analogue joystick, without one it's a nightmare. The only bad point is all the flashing lights may make you throw up.
