One of the last games to be released for the Dreamcast, Headhunter is a third-person stealth/action shooter in the vein of Metal Gear Solid.

Set in Los Angeles in the near future, Headhunter puts the player in the role of amnesiac ex-bounty hunter Jack Wade, contracted by his boss' daughter to find the man who murdered her father. Tracking the culprit through various gang hideouts and criminal organizations, Jack discovers that his skills haven't entirely deserted him along with his memory, and is soon on the trail of the mastermind behind a conspiracy to take control of the world, as well as rob Jack of his memory and life.


Los Angeles: Early in the 21st century. Gang warfare and soaring crime have led to repression under a near-fascist regime. Strict censorship controls the media, and new laws measure everything and everyone by their value to the state. Wrongdoers face "chipping" with experimental implants and compulsory organ donation, their body parts used to prolong the lives of law-abiding citizens.

Leading the war against crime is the Anti-Crime Network, an elite force of privatized law enforcers. Like bounty hunters of old, the ACN's "Headhunters" track down the city's Most Wanted wherever they hide. Combining combat skills and cunning with the latest in high-tech weaponry, the Headhunters are turning the criminal tide.

But when the millionaire founder of the ACN is murdered at his desk, it seems the underworld may be striking back. Is his death the work of the Syndicate and its mysterious criminal mastermind, or does the truth run deeper and darker...?
