The lights are on
In the early 2000s, Sega released a title that seemed (on the surface) to have it all. It had a cool dude with sunglasses and guns at a time when people were still optimistic about upcoming Matrix movies. Aesthetics aside, this game is pretty mediocre. With its frustrating vehicular segments and ho-hum action, it's surprising that it eventually spawned a sequel.
Watch below to see Joe Juba, Andrew Reiner, and intern Jack Frontier attempt to wring any fun out of Headhunter.

Eric Clapton of the mouth, eh?
Both of these games look terrible. Though Headhunter may have been more fun when it was just released.
thank you for the transmetropolitan shout out, that series is amazing
I made a fan-site of sorts for this game before it came out on the Dreamcast and a couple of the developers found it and sent me some friendly messages.
Made my week.
Funny thing is I've never played the game.
Still calling him "Jack Frontier", eh, Dan?
I remember reading about this game in the Official Dreamcast Magazine about a year before the console was killed off. It sounded so awesome and at the time GTA III wasn't out so there wasn't much to compare it to. That's probably the main reason why only one joystick worked.
And GI will start implementing a reading comprehension test for future employees. :p:p:p I understand why Reiner wants Dan to suffer through these two games and to this I say do eeeeeet!
Happy trails, Jack Frontier. Back to the Wild West with ya.
Wow both of those were terrible lol. I'm surprised that got an 8 back in the day. Oh how the times have changed.
Project Eden ! Come on Guys You can change your characters!!!!
You need to be the robot and jumped down.
You can be any character at anytime. Me and my buddy beat this game had a blast.
This was one of the first games I bought with my own money, man i was disappointed.
It wasn't a great game but the story line was fine.
This game was alright
So those games were horrible. Very horrible. I actually remember seeing the box to Headhunter and thinking "maybe." Praise the Lord I stayed away.
Wow, those are some rough games.
eric clapton of the mouth, eh?
What do you mean, abCBS News isn't real? They're my most trusted source of news!
Man, these two games were really bad. Headhunter looked sort of tolerable (though, it certainly looked more like a Dreamcast game than a PS2 game), but Project Eden looked abominable.
