Play OverviewPlay Overview

Star Wars: Bounty Hunter (2002) is a running, jumping and shooting game where you play a ruthless bounty hunter on a galaxy-spanning mission to track down and capture a rogue force-wielder. As you infiltrate secret bases, factories, and prisons you must fight thugs, droids, and mercenaries with automatically aiming weapons. It stands out for its classic Star Wars story and how the auto-aiming makes play about evasion and precise jetpack movement.

Set shortly before Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, you play bounty hunter Jango Fett, who receives a mission from Count Dooku, tasking you with tracking down his rogue dark side apprentice Komari Vosa, in exchange for a huge sum of credits. You set out to uncover any hints of her whereabouts, travelling from deserts to cities and jungles to deserted outposts, searching for bounties to collect on the people you encounter and shooting your way through the hordes of criminals you face.

Play is a mix of fighting and jetpack traversal to get through the levels. In addition to your auto-aiming pistols, you can use a flamethrower, poison darts, and rockets. Throughout each stage, you can scan enemies and civilians for bounties that unlock a digital comic. This means that stealthily surveying each area before you move in is the best way to ensure you don't miss any potential rewards.

The result is an unusual mix of fast-paced shooting and precise movement that, when paired with the original and engaging story, make for a unique game where the challenge lies more in movement and evasion than attack, that's fun for both Star Wars newcomers and veterans alike.
