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 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.
Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, set in the interval between The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, is a first-person adventure which lets you step into the role of the galaxy's most heavily armed bounty hunter, Jango Fett, as you track a renegade Jedi across the galaxy, collecting information (and bounties) along the way.
In addition to Jango's trademark dual blaster pistols, your armour bristles with gadgets and weaponry: darts, flamethrower, blowtorch, scanner, cable snare and--of course--a missile-launching jetpack. Utilise this arsenal to battle hordes of uncooperative guards, fend off rival bounty hunters, scale precipitous skyscrapers, and capture fugitives--dead or alive. The basic controls are surprisingly easy to master, and you've got enough armament at your disposal to fight your way out of almost any situation. Still, some finesse is required: as fun as it is to walk into a room and blast everything in sight (and it is fun--especially when you're the one wearing the jetpack), you may discover when the smoke clears that the guy you just fried was worth twice as much alive. Oh well...
The complex storyline is unravelled with extended cut scenes that let you rest your thumbs while Jango follows up the next lead (Star Wars fans will appreciate the quality and detail of these scenes, as well as the fidelity of the story arc--namely how Jango is chosen as the model for the clone troopers in Episode II). And anyone familiar with the LucasArts suite of games will not be disappointed by the superior graphics, music, sound effects and fully realised characters and locations. The pace of the game is up to you: methodically seek out the secrets of each level, or ruthlessly blast your way to the big payoff. --Maile BohlmannSee all Product Description

A glorious opening sequence drops you straight into the action pistols blazing, as you are forced to somersault around a pit-fighting arena, dodging the attacks of a lumbering fighting beast, from a third person view.
The controls are remarkably easy to master, intuitive and dynamic. And the graphics are (as you would expect with other titles like LOTR The Two Towers on the market) gorgeous. The environments are highly detailed and you recognize many familiar alien and droid species and models (respectively).
So, why not five stars?
Because, like The Two Towers, the game is very linear, and although you can freely roam quite large levels there are specific paths through each of them that must be taken if you want to advance through the game.
As a film spin off? Beautiful.
As an all round, fun, third person shoot 'em up? One of the better ones.
A mysterious man named Tyranus hires several bounty hunters, including Jango Fett and his nemesis Montross, to kill Komari Vosa, the insane leader of an insidious cult. As Jango, you must follow leads from planet to planet in search of the Bando Gora cult, all the while keeping your helmet scanner tuned to any other bounties along the way. The game takes you to Outland Station, the skyscrapers of Coruscant, the prisons of Oovo IV, the jungles of Malastare, the deserts of Tatooine and the graveyards of one of the moons of Bogden.
This game is all about having fun. It's no in-depth thriller and for that I'm grateful. Too many games these days sacrifice sheer fun and replace it with a deep and meaningful plot, but here we get the fun left in and a reasonably good plot as well! The locations, sound effects and cut-scenes are all perfectly created to instantly transport you to that Galaxy Far, Far Away and LucasArts have gone as far as to get the actors who played Jango Fett and Zam Wesell in Episode II to voice those characters in the game. There's a good array of weapons to unleash (blaster pistols and rifles, whipcord, rocket launcher, flame thrower and others) against an even bigger array of enemies (including a giant dragon, a vicious Mandalorian warrior and Dark Jedi who wields two lightsabers!). The gameplay is nicely capped off by the opportunity to capture additional bounties and the introduction of the jetpack (which is great fun to use!). For Star Wars fans, we get to see how Jango meets Zam, how he becomes the Prime Clone and how he aquires his kick-ass ship, Slave I. A cameo appearance by a certain 'vile gangster' weaves in a bit more Star Wars flavour too.Read more ›
I think the whole game is just fantastic. It is both entertaining and challenging, especially the last two levels - they are solid! I love it when Jango has a series of amazing weapons that James Bond or Indiana Jones couldn't possibly imagine. But I think the only bad thing is the ending (when Jango faces the dark Jedi to complete the game) is just too easy. And I think it would have been cool if there had been a secret level, like Jango Fett fighting Obi-One, or Jango fighting Windu. But over all, the game is great and worth getting, and you could just keep playing on it over and over again until you think the hunt ends!
Firstly the graphics, as with most STAR WARS games, are truly breath-taking. They are very detailed and smooth. The in-game graphics are almost as good as the cut-scenes.
Now, onto the star wars bit. I am a hardcore star wars fan and the locations and races are BRILLIANT! All the races are recognisable and the game shows us the underbelly of the Star Wars universe. It explains how Jango acquires the mighty Slave 1!
The gameplay is overall a wonderful affair. The controls are easy to get used to so you'll be backflipping into a jet-pack burst whilst shooting you two oppenents with your twin-blasters in no time.
The game is quite big but the levels are a bit too linear with only one way to complete each mission. The cut-scenes are brilliant and tell a story within themselves.
The only problem is the game isn't varied enough. You spend the whole game running around in third-person mode when a mission where you had to pilot the slave 1, or fly a speeder-bike could have been easily added. This is a must for any star wars fan. If your nto to keen on star wars try this and i can garauntee you will enjoy - oh i forgot to mension the funny unlockale out-takes, comic book and trading-cards...(now hows that for extras?)
You play Jango, (Duhh)a ruthless and fearless bounty hunter in the job for just one thing... the money of course!! But one fatefull day however would change his life forever. While in his hideout, Jango recieves a call from the mysterious Darth Tyranous who offers him an extremely considerable amount of money for the capture of the crazy ex-jedi, Komari Vosa. As Jango braves the journey to up to 8 different planets searching for this ominous jedi, he discovers that he was not the only informed of this hunt. His arch nemises, Montross, is also on the case and Jango is hell bent on killing anybody who stood in his way of this enormous bounty. You have access to one of the most formidable arsenals in the Star Wars galaxy. Such as Jango's trade mark weapons, the dual blasters, toxic darts, sniper rifles, Jango's jetpack complete with on-board missles, whip cable to ensnare and render an anemy competely helpless, id scanner so that you can determen if an enemy is a bounty or not and many more. But Vosa isn't the only being with a price on their head you know, and there is over 100 000 credits in bounties to be had in that vast galaxy.Read more ›
