Headhunter – Consumer Guide

Brad Gallaway's picture

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Blood, Violence

Parents are advised to use caution with Headhunter. While there is only a small amount of explicitly bloody violence, sanitized shooting is a large part of the game. There are also several sexual innuendoes and a handful of expletives. The game's recurring themes of organ transplantation and general dystopia might also spur kids to ask some awkward questions. Headhunter is definitely not recommended for the younger ones.

Gamers in general will get an above-average experience held back by some rough control issues. Once you get used to the idiosyncrasies, it's a pretty fun thrill ride with good variety and a fast pace. The care the developers took in fleshing out the game's world make significant additions to the feel and polish, and helps enhance the overall package.

Fans of Metal Gear Solid will definitely want to check into Headhunter. The game is similar in a lot of ways. From the stealth-based gameplay to the VR missions, you'll be right at home. The game is also heavily interspersed with cutscenes and plot development. There's no denying elements are shared between the two games, but it's different enough to justify a play-through. As someone on the newsgroups said, "It's like Metal Gear Solid 2 with all the bullsh*t cut out."

Hearing Impaired gamers get first class treatment with full text available for all cutscenes and dialogue. Bravo, Amuze.
