Excerpt: Fugitive Hunter is an FPS that challenges the player to hunt fugitives, which is probably why they named it Fugitive Hunter. The game attempts to capitalize on the universal popularity of first-person shooters and the notorious reputations of real life criminals and terrorists. According to the game’s exaggerated making-of featurettes, quite a lot of research went into its creation.
Conclusion: The vast majority of Fugitive Hunter’s game play is standard first-person-shooter fare. Other than the graphical upgrade, nothing separates the game play here from Quake era FPSs, except for the fact that there is no fun to be had. Many annoying traits are present, but the top two or three will likely suffice as examples. To begin with, the difficulty level is wildly inconsistent.
Excerpt: Combining genres is something that is very difficult to do in any entertainment medium, especially the video games industry. While the very process of combining gameplay styles is a difficult process, it's hard to predict what is going to and not going to work. With this knowledge I would like to give my respect to Black Ops for trying to combine fighting games with first person shooters in their new game Fugitive Hunter.
Excerpt: At first look, Fugitive Hunter will look like it's a joke. You'll say to yourself that this game couldn't possibly have been made by serious people. Not that it looks all that bad, but the fact that you're torching terrorists in Afghanistan and blowing afro toting gangsters away in Miami won't let you take this game seriously for a second. Though the graphics are riding the edge of a knife here, the sounds, unfortunately, have plummeted straight off the side.
Excerpt: Fugitive Hunter: War on Terror, is a terribly crafted FPS by any gameplay standard: horribly bland graphics, lame and choppy gameplay, the list goes on. In short, this swill isn't worth playing if you get it for free. From a rhetorical standpoint, Fugitive Hunter is propaganda of the worst sort, and reeks of McCarthy-era brutality and ignorance.
Excerpt: With the semi-recent outbursts of top-wanted-list of criminals, Encore has chosen to make a game based on that such thing. As a sort of special-forces cop, you go around the world busting extremely dangerous criminals, from street thug Casey Webber, to bio-chemical-genocidic Osama Bin Laden. As far as criminal history and personal description goes, Black Ops have done their homework.
