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.

12+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. Later levels in the game are extremely hard and require precise movements and a clear strategy, but you should still be able to cope with losing and starting again repeatedly.
