It seems that the LucasArts/Activision partnership is playing fair to both the Nintendo and Sony camps with its Star Wars franchise release strategy. Bounty Hunter was released for the PS2 back in December 2002 but having said that, the GameCube was the first machine to see this week's [PS2] Clone Wars at around the same time. So it seems everyone's happy.

Inspired by events that take place between Episode I and II, Star Wars Bounty Hunter is an original, third-person action game, which centres on Jango Fett (father of everyone's favourite character, Boba). The story involved establishes Jango's place in the Star Wars Galaxy and also his connection to the notorious clone army.

Drawing players into the protagonist's sinister and seedy world, the game sees him venture into the dark side of the Star Wars universe to track down the elusive leader of a mysterious and deadly cult.

Gameplay focuses on combat and physical action as our hunter pursues his bounty across six worlds and 18 levels. A barrage of crime lords, corrupt politicians and other enemies of various species must be overcome along the way - a task made a little easier by an arsenal of powerful weapons. The likes of dual pistols, flame throwers, missiles, and that famous jetpack are all at the player's disposal, making for some explosive scenes.

Bounty Hunter provides an ideal opportunity for Fett fans to strap on that oh-so-cool outfit and experience the adventures of one of the universe's most popular anti-heroes. And we all used to dream of that as kids, did we not?
