Headhunter User Reviews
Nice graphics, intriguing atory line and interesting puzzles.The bad:
Glitches out a bit, the camera angles and the apparent lack of weaponsSummary:
This game reminded me quite a bit of metal gear solid it also reminded me partly of blade runner for the pc, mainly because of the story line.
The graphics look nice and it runs pretty well, the story line is enjoyable and will pull you in.
On the bad side the camera angles are dodgy and annoying, there aren't that many weapons and I found it did glitch out at times even though it could have just been my game.
All in all it is a good game but something like metal gear solid 2 or slinter cell would be a better buy
Action packed. Different various missions. Not too hard, not too easy. Great voice acting. Unlimited continues. Controls are good...The bad:
...bad camera angles sometimes as with every 3D adventure/action game. Full motion video segments with real people doesn't really make sense hense everything else is CG. Gets tedious sometimes. Getting skill points on the motorcycle. Takes 24 block of memory on VMU.Summary:
You are Jack Wade the greatest headhunter alive next to number two, Hank Redwood.
You are hired by this babe, Angela Stern to find out who killed her dad.
First you need skill points to get your licence back. To get tested you need mad skillz riding the motocycle. The skill point meter doesn't go up until you hit at least 120 khp for at least 3 secs. The faster you go, the most points you get. But if you crash you lose points a minimum of 30, and the maximun depends on how fast your collision was...
The bike riding is fun, but once you get to the AAA licence you need 1300 points, and there's ...
Extremely good. Fun to play, great graphics and an exciting story line not heard of beforeThe bad:
Some in game gliches, so save regularly. Not too hard either. Also when riding the bike, there is no ppl walking around only a wide selection of cars an trucks.Summary:
Got a PSX and played Metal Gear Solid. Wot a Cracker! best game I played on that system. Sold my PSX and got a PS2 earlier this year with Metal Gear Solid 2. Enjoyed it alot but it was completed in a week, so needed a new challange, got HEADHUNTER. Similar to Metal Gear but with a hint of Resident Evil as the views of 3rd person continued to swing around and give an advantage to the player, but also the 1st person shooting was cool. I got into the game straight away and it has some really cool moves to make it feel real. Guns were cool, and a special scene close to the end of the game with ...
The motorcycle LOL
The easy reload (There's two ways, press in left analog, or rotate right analog one rotation, I do the latter)
The engrossing story and complex puzzles.
The difficulty not usually seen with games these days.
Skill points >=): you get skill points by starting out on a straight raod and just flooring it, dodge all the cars and when you get to (I think it's 200kmps, could be wrong) Your skill points start climbing, don't hit a car though or your meter will drop back down to where it was, sometimes lower. (p.s.: Skill points are used to get new liscenses at L.E.I.L.A. liscense exams)
And last but not least... The ads, they remind me a lot of that movie with Sylvester Stalone and Sandra Bullock (that really corny futuristic movie, "Yes John Spartan") forgive me for allowing the title to slip my mind, but the ads are a trip and almost always end up having to do with something about organ donation.
Now for the bad: The camera (AHHHHHH!!!) This is where it really hits you, the camera sucks lol. You can't chagne camera views on your own (if you can, I'm seriously missing something) the only way to change the camera view to look directly in front of you if to draw your gun by holding R1. And when you let go, goooooooooop, just like jellow, it flops back to it's original angle.
The lack of weapons, there isn't too much to choose from, but hey, it's that way in any game lol. We always want what we don't have.
The acceleration in first gear on the bike, if you happen to hit a wall (and trust me, you will), when you accel. your bike goes flying in the opposite direction and you can't turn it for what it's worth. This seems to dissapate as you gradually speed up through 1stg. but it's still very annoying.
I was really surprised how much this game reminded me of Metal Gear Solid, it has the radar and everything. Now, that's not a bad thing, actually veterans of MGS&MGS2: Sons of Liberty will find it kind of cozy. The controls aren't too bad, but the camera sucks. Another small thing, you can never walk normally, whenever you walking you look like your constapated (just a small observation).
gameplay, semi-good visuals, action, all that good stuff, and overall a cool presentationThe bad:
somewhat dated graphics (wasn't this originally a dreamcast game?), a little hard to control the motorcyle (it took me a while to figure out a few of the quirks), and the camera angles sometimes get in the waySummary:
It seems these days that action games are going in one general direction: angry, raspy-voiced badasses who need a shave.
Jack Wade, like Solid Snake and others, is a versatile killer who makes use of various tools such as guns, decoy bullets, grenades, mines, and (of course) his hands to deal swift justice to the terrorists that plague the civilized world. Yes, I said terrorists. Terrorists, terrorists. Get over it.
The game is solid, fun, and easy to get into. You're immediately thrown into the action, and the story unfolds from there. The voice acting isn't up to par with games such as Meta...
A great logical thinking game, with good puzzles which arent too tedious.
The bike, loved zooming through the streets on it.
Graphically its really nice, the detail on some levels is really good.
The camera angles can be very irratating.
The aiming does sometimes get annoying.
More should ahve been used with the bike.
All in all a good puzzle/action game, and it does strike a nice balance between the two.
