STAFF REVIEW of Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter (Xbox)


Wednesday, July 30, 2003.

Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter Box art Mace Griffin is a man on a mission. A mission for revenge. At one point in Griffin's life, he was a Ranger. Part of an elite group of soldiers trained and deployed to keep the peace throughout the colonies. Then on one fateful mission, Mace's world changes forever. While adherring to his orders, he gets framed for the death of his squad during a mission. Mace Griffin get's sent to prison for 10 years. Once he get's out, you assume the role of Mace Griffin, and you will set out and seek revenge. Just like he says in the game's introduction movie: "Besides, who wants to go to hell alone?"


The gameplay of Mace Griffin pans out rather interestingly. You get an assignment from your boss, you get in your spaceship and you fly yourself to your destination. You get there, dock and then begin. You encounter hostiles and you engage in space dogfighting along the way. Sometimes, the hangar you land in will have bada guys. You can use your ships weapon system to make a safe place for you to get out. So basically we're looking at 2 games in one. Unfortunately, the space portions are rather short.
Once engaged on a mission, the missions are incredibly long. Like Halo style long, complete with in game loading zones. Through this though, you can comeback from death without having to go through someplace you've already been through. The combat system is very solid and intense. The enemy AI ranges from smart, to essentially stupid. But I think the game throws the dumb enemies at you to lead you into false confidence. A majority of the enemies essentially refuse to die and will take cover, regroup and attempt to flank you. They will keep you busy.


The graphics of this game range from average to exceptional. Some of the character models seemed kind of blucky, but the enviroments where richly detailed. Your weapons are highly detailed, and the game uses "motion blurring" quite well. The visuals will not disapoint. Also, the space graphics where outstanding.


Henry Rollins is Mace Griffin's voice. His tone, his inflection, everything. He tells the story, you hear him speak, and he does a !&%$@#* fine job. The soundtrack to the game is rather nice, but I too noticed that sometimes it didn't seem appropriate at times. But I will give massive kudos points for including the Rollins Band song: "Shine" in the intro movie.


Suggest ions:
First I would suggest keeping the graphics quality consistent throughout the game. It's great in most places, but sometimes it's lacking in others.
Second, I would find a better way than to interupt the game to load the next sequence. I like the ingame loading thing, but I don't like how it stips the game sometimes.
Third, I noticed that sometimes the game gets buggy, and wouldn't load a sequence properly. That's something to look into.
Please make a sequel with Henry Rollins.
I'm not so concerned about online or deathmatch play, sometimes a good FPS can be a single player game too. And this game is perfectly fine as a solo game. Not every FPS in the world needs to be Co-Op.
