Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter
Description official descriptions
You play as Mace Griffin a former space ranger who after being framed and sent to prison has turned to a life of bounty hunting in an attempt to find out what really happened.
The game plays as a standard FPS with a twist. Every now and then you get to pilot different space ships in hectic dog fights. The transitions between the two parts of the game is almost unnoticeable and while you are in space you can even park your ship and have a walk around inside before you get on with your mission.

This game did have some pleasing visuals, and that's giving it some credit. Some is grainy, but otherwise things look decent. Enemy AI is pretty simple, but sometimes can provide a challenge.
Weapons are fun to play with, and each have positives and negatives. Most of them have nice look and feel to them, and are probably the best thing about this... bad game.
Well, the AI like I said before is just... simple. The bad-guys suck at life itself. They can't aim, can't shoot, can't dodge, can't survive. Some provide a worthy challenge when they're grouped, but other than that... pffft.
The game itself is one giant glitch. Here's an example. You land in the port of a ship in space, and get out of your ship. You whip out your gun, and pick off the silly-looking people with plasma tv screens for faces. Normally you'd go into the next area, right? I like to explore every aspect of the game, doing whatever I can. I go back into my ship, and into the cockpit. Next thing I see is three of the tv guys walking in place, not moving. I enter the pilot's seat and start shooting at them, they bleed a lot, but never die. Dissatisfied, I got out and pulled out my heaviest weapon and unleashed every round. Nothing. I tried leaving the area, and the doors wouldn't open and I was screwed. I reloaded my save and continued. Many, MANY glitches throughout the game, pissing me off pretty bad, but after getting through them, it was almost a pleasant experience.
The Bottom Line
A glitchy sci-fi game where you fight a wide variety of enemies with a slick arsenal, but the glitches really, REALLY killed the game. Definite rent, buy if desperate enough.

Originally, only an Xbox and PC version were announced, and to be published by Electronic Arts. Later, a GameCube and PlayStation 2 version were added, EA's involvement vanished, Vivendi stepped in, and the GameCube version was ultimately cancelled.
During the intro, one scene in which a character is shot in the head and the background song were cut. Also all blood and gore effects were removed.
