Bounty Hunter is a great game that effectively puts players in control of Jango Fett. While the game is a bit on the linear side, it does a fantastic job of telling an interesting original story. I wholeheartedly recommend Bounty Hunter for any Star Wars fan.

Dotée d'une excellent réalisation et d'une jouabilité à toute épreuve, cette version est très légèrement supérieure à la version PS2. Si l'on exclut quelques missions peu intéressantes et son côté répétitif, il nous reste un jeu très pêchu et fidèle à l'esprit de la saga.

Bounty Hunter is one of the best Star Wars games to come along for your GameCube since the original Rogue Squadron II dazzled us back when the system launched. The action is intense, the gameplay is flawless, and the graphics and sound presentation are as good as it gets. A definite improvement over the PS2 version, if you own a GameCube and love Star Wars, or just the idea of being a bounty hunter, then hop in your pod racer and rush to the nearest store and get yours today.

Star Wars: Bounty Hunter is a surprisingly well-done action shooter that no Star Wars fan should pass up. It has some flaws, namely an imperfect camera system and some repetition where gunplay is concerned. But the strong presentation and story coupled with a tight control scheme, satisfying platformer elements and huge worlds to see and conquer, more than make up for any shortcomings.

Many games have been released since Bounty Hunter first hit the shelves that have better graphics, more responsive AI, and bigger levels. In spite of the newer competition, Bounty Hunter still holds its own as one great game. Never easy, the game is structured well enough to allow conquering without a book, but nuanced and complicated enough to keep you rapt for weeks on end.

Certes, les lourdeurs et les défauts du gameplay demeurent mais l'amélioration graphique compense un peu et le jeu est un poil plus agréable dans cette déclinaison GC. Toutefois, il reste essentiellement destiné aux fans souhaitant en savoir plus sur un personage haut en couleur de leur univers favoris. Que les joueurs lambda passent leur chemin.

LucasArts' newest third-person-perspective action/adventure game stars Star Wars Episode II anti-hero Jango Fett in a story that takes place before Attack of the Clones. While fans will definitely trip on seeing the father of Boba acquire Slave 1 and get hand-picked by Count Dooku as source material for Lord Sidious's clone army, others may find this game to be a fun but lackluster effort. What Bounty Hunter does right is provide you with an arsenal of weapons, gadgets, and moves. Armed with twin blasters, you can aim at two enemies simultaneously, while Jango's jetpack fuels great evasive maneuvering and more-challenging-than-usual platform jumping.

Bounty Hunter has its good points, and the GameCube version is markedly better than the PlayStation 2 release.

Après un passage plutôt moyen sur PS2, Star Wars Bounty Hunter dans sa version GameCube arrive à relever le niveau grâce à une réalisation supérieure. Toutefois, son gameplay assez poussif et très peu intuitif ne le réservera qu’aux fans de Star Wars et aux maniaques du pad.

Star Wars Bounty Hunter is a third-person action game, with an emphasis on the action. Mr. Fett can run, jump, roll, hang on ledges, climb, fly short distances with his jetpack, and shoot up his enemies with a nasty arsenal that includes blasters, toxic darts, and back-mounted homing rockets. If ever a Star Wars character was ready-made for an action game, it'd be him. Since he's supposed to be a bounty hunter, he can also capture any being with a bounty on its head and redeem them for galactic credits. This is never required, but is an optional side objective throughout the game's six chapters and 18 missions. It sounds like a promising framework for an action game, but alas, numerous issues prevent it from delivering on its potential.

Overall, the game is well presented, but a bit uninteresting, repetitive, and limited. Most of the game is just running and shooting at enemies with the auto-targeting, which isn't amazingly fun. It's actually the most average game ever. Since the game is about 10 hours long, and there's nothing to do after finishing it and finding all the bounties, it may very well be the perfect rental.

Game Informer Magazine
I can’t be mad at the company that brought me my beloved X-Wing series for PC, but releasing Bounty Hunter is tantamount to being held down while someone farts in your face. I can definitely see where the developers were going with this game, but I’ll be danged if they even begin to scratch the surface of the Fett family’s potential. The camera is awful, the action is unevenly paced; the level design is frustrating; and, worst of all, the controls are terrible. This isn’t the game you’re looking for…you can go about your business. Move along!

Bounty Hunter starts off on a remote outpost known as Outland Station with our anti-hero, Jango Fett, on the hunt. Before long, our old friend Darth Tyranus appears and offers Jango a job that will ultimately ensure his position as the host for the Clone Army that was brought to light in Episode II. The target this time is the leader of the Bando Gora, a cult whose power and influence is beginning to threaten the malevolent plans of the Sith lords.
