Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter
Into Liquid Sky
14 December 2004
Excerpt: Mace Griffin was set up and sent to prison for ten years. Previously before his stint in the space slammer, he was part of a peacekeeping corps that helped police in outer space. But, once his team of rangers got wasted, he was sent to prison. Once out, he's become bitter and wants revenge. Sounds like the perfect recipe for Mace to get a job as a bounty hunter, eh?
Pros: Space flight combat levels break up gameplay, Looks pretty good
Cons: No multiplayer, Linear, Long and frequent load times
Excerpt: When I envision a character such as a bounty hunter, I'm not necessarily picturing some schmuck who wears bright, primary colors. I'm thinking a dirty, gritty, character, whose surroundings match that same personality. That's exactly the feel I got from Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter . The graphic texture seems very gritty to me, whether it's a character or a background. Sadly, that's the best I can say for this part of the game.
Excerpt: It’s not that Mace Griffin is a bad game. It’s just that it’s not a particularily good one either. If you make a game like this without any sort of multi-player, then everything else about the game had better be absolutely flawless, to the point of making gamers everywhere soak their highwater pants in glee. However, everything about Mace is just pretty mediocre. Even the voice of Henry Rollins couldn’t save Vivendi’s souls.
Excerpt: Star Wars + Halo equals one great game. Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter has the best of two sci-fi worlds. You get the array of space ships that you pilot throughout the game and destroy fighters before you have to dock at the space stations. You battle different alien races and go to different places in the distant future.
