Overall: Great western shootout game were you are an outlaw who is betrayed by his gang.You are out to hunt down and kill the members of your old gang one at a time.Super cool game experience.Great x box live game... Gameplay: Western shootout game. It's like Halo meets the old west.It is very smooth and easy to pick up and learn. Graphics: Cool level design. Old western feel really works. The brothel rocks. The graphics are nothing to write home about but they are pretty good. Sound: Great music. Great weapon sounds.Cool voice overs. Sounds funny when you shoot someone in the arse! Some of the guys in the game cuss at you in spanish. Great stuff. Suggestions: More levels for X box live. Maybe more weapon selection.
Overall: A promicing set up. You're a quick draw gun man back in the wild west days. Your gang has left you for dead, now you hunt them down one by one. You even play some poker to win extra ammo and life. Gameplay: Very unrealistic. I dont think the staff on this site really played this game, or they wouldnt have given it a 4.5! The aiming is horrible, the enemies are extremely predictable and stupid. And some times you KNOW you're hitting a guy, but he's magically unaffected. Very frustrating to shoot the plank out from under a guy and watching float in mid air still shooting you. Lot of slow down too!! Very arcadish, not very submerssive. Graphics: The graphics arent bad, if you're into the PS2. This game would look top notch on the PS2, but doesnt really do the Xbox any justice. Sound: Had to turn off the music. The in game music and the game play are like oil and water. Its a bit more realistic, with no music anyways. Suggestions: go back to space invaders
