A Very Underrated Game,
By A Customer
This review is from: Star Wars: Bounty Hunter (PS2) (Video Game)
It's surprising the low key release this game had, because it is excellent and much better than the awful Starfighter and Clone Wars games. The graphics still look very good, obviously not up to the same standard as the latest games, but still they have aged well and certainly do not take away from the experience. As usual from Lucasarts the sound in the game is flawless, terrific John Williams score and kosher original Star Wars SFX from Skywalker Sound itself. But it's the gameplay where this game excels, giving surprising and great freedom with the jetpack, which you receive with and stick with very quickly, this isnt a game which is hard on its audience; it give unlimited ammo on the blaster pistols and generously gives ammo for everything else and there availiability of health is also thoughtful and well judged. The controls are very effective and means you'll be blasting enemies while hovering with your jetpack/ somersaulting in no time. Another plus is the camera system, the idea of such freedom with the jetpack was ambitious and a poor camera system would have instantly killed the game, however I have to say I was really impressed with the camera with very few occasions where it was frustrating or incorrectly placed.
