Just RPG (Oct 09, 2003)
In short, Battle Hunter could have been good. What’s there is good stuff, it’s just lacking content. It feels like an early version of an unreleased game: good concepts, but there’s just not enough depth and ingenuity to last. Still, you could do a lot worse for ten bucks, and Battle Hunter will likely kill a weekend.
GameSpot (Jul 03, 2001)
Battle Hunter places you in the role of an animelike 2D sprite, modeled after a number of popular stereotypical characters from the 2D RPG genre. Your can choose to have your hunter appear as one of many sprites including a visored robot, a spiky-haired adventurer, a goggled explorer, or even as a trench coat wearing mystery man, complete with twin handguns and the trademark wind-blowing effect.
PSX Nation (Jul 16, 2001)
Can an RPG without a story to tell or characters to relate to really be called an RPG at all? "Battle Hunter" is an old turn-based engine getting dusted for the sole purpose of filling some poor soul's idea of a good time, not YOUR or MY idea of what a good tactical/turn-based PSX game should be.
Battle Hunter could have been a good strategy title at a bargain price, but the admixture of board-game elements brings too much randomness to gameplay. Rather than winning by outmaneuvering opponents, victory is often claimed purely through luck. Level advancement is especially a joke since opponents will always be at the same power level as you. At a mere ten spot, Battle Hunters could be a game you might get some multiplayer enjoyment out of, but forget about it as a solo act.
With its monotonous gameplay and utter lack of storyline, Battle Hunter could probably be renamed “Boredom Maker.” You’d get more enjoyment out of using the disc as a Frisbee than you would playing the game. On the upside, it didn’t cost you much if you’ve already made the mistake of buying this game. Next!
