In the latest episode of Replaying the Classics, StarWars.com takes us back to Star Wars: Bounty Hunter. This is another game that I actually played a lot of back in the day so I was happy to see them covering this one.
Here’s what they have to say:
” In terms of narrative and presentation, Bounty Hunter delivers the goods. It’s got high-quality cinematics rendered by the special-effects wizards at Industrial Light & Magic; it’s got original music by Jeremy Soule, who later composed the original score for Knights of the Old Republic (2003); and it tells a story that adds color and depth to some of Jango Fett’s best dialogue in Episode II. “
I can pretty much agree to that and most of what they say in this retro play-through, actually. From a gameplay perspective, Jango has dual blaster pistols and he can rapid-fire them. You can also lock onto targets so as far as shooting goes, it’s more about agility than precision aging.
There’s a jetpack so you can fly over enemies and shoot down on them. I love that part!
It has great story, great boss fights, and fun bonus content. If you have not played it, it’s definitely worth taking a look back. It holds up pretty well even to today’s gaming standards and if you’re a Star Wars fan, then you should definitely give it a go. At the very least, read the article and see what you think.
