Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter
Game Over Online
9 September 2015
Excerpt: Warthog's newest sci-fi first-person shooter isn't necessarily a bad game, but it certainly doesn't rank among the stars of the genre, even if it does borrow heavily from them. Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter takes place several hundred years in the future and contains many of the trappings found in bad...
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...
Excerpt: In fact, the main character's back-story seems just a tad unnecessary. Mace Griffin, voiced by Rollins Band front man and spoken word entertainer extraordinaire Henry Rollins, begins the game as a member of the Rangers, an elite force protecting the rights of citizens everywhere.
Excerpt: Genre : FPS Publisher: Vivendi Developer: Warthog Release Date: June 18, 2003 Buy 'MACE GRIFFIN BOUNTY HUNTER': Xbox | GameCube | PC | PlayStation 2 Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter was originally scheduled to be released a long time ago.
Excerpt: Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter is a title that has seen many delays. I recall seeing it at E3 several years ago, at E3 2001, when it was going to be published by Crave. While the game didn’t have a story in place, it showed an engine that allowed players to move back and forth between a Wing Commander...
Conclusion: Mace is a cool game but rarely less than taxing to play - we found it to be way too difficult for most and difficult to get in to, and the hackneyed plot (betrayal/retribution/alien/hybrids/corporations/conspiracy etc. etc. yawn ) and the predictable, repetitive finale does it no service.
Pros: Top graphics., FPS & Space action., Tense shootouts., A technically impressive game that pushes the PS2 to its limits, .
Cons: More linear than a bounty hunter game should be, and too tough for some., Frame rate problems in big space battles spoil the look and the gameplay., No multiplayer.
Conclusion: Die Idee der ohne Zeitsprünge auskommenden Geschichte ist zwar spätestens seid Half-Life nicht mehr ganz neu, trotzdem wurde dieser Punkt bei Mace Griffin schwach umgesetzt. Zu häufig marschiert man unnötig lang durch die Pampa, zu lang sind die Märsche zurück zum Raumschiff.
