Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

It's an absolute crime that there hasn't been more Wild West-themed video games over the years, but Red Dead Revolver redresses this balance almost instantly with a gloriously authentic spaghetti western feel that'll make the next clichéd fantasy or SF setting you come across even harder to bear. Red Dead Revolver has had an unusual history, starting life as an update of Capcom's old Gun Smoke arcade game before being canned. So confident were the developer's of the game's worth though that they convinced Grand Theft Auto publishers Rockstar to buy up the rights and allow them to finish their work. And thank goodness they did, for not only does the game entirely legitimise the Wild West as a viable setting for a video game, but it's one of the most entertaining arcade shooters of recent years.

The controls are just complex enough to allow depth, without becoming fiddly, and allow you to use cover appropriately, and fight hand to hand and with a huge range of different weapons. The best bit though is the bullet time-esque "Dead Eye" mode which allows you to select multiple targets in slow motion and then switch back to normal time and blast everyone away instantly, just like Clint Eastwood. With sections on horseback, a number of missions (perhaps too many) where you control a side character instead of the eponymous Red, and tons of references to classic movie moments this has just about everything you could ask for from a cowboy shooter. --David Jenkins

Manufacturer's Description

A blazing third-person gun-slinging action game, Red Dead Revolver is fuelled by a revenge-driven storyline punctuated by dark humour. The arcade-style gameplay blends seamlessly with the elements of the Wild West era. Full-motion capture cut scenes and breathtaking visuals fuel the cinematic ambition of the game. Inspired by the Spaghetti Westerns of the 60s and 70s, Red Dead Revolver is the first game to fully explore the Wild West era, rather than use it as a backdrop. It is a homage to the classic tales of vengeance on the untamed frontier, where life is reduced to its simplest form--the clothes on your back, your gun, and maybe a horse.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Good, the Great and the even Better! 6 Aug. 2005
By M. JONES VINE VOICE
There's nothing bad or ugly about this game - its all good! It's so refreshing to have a western on the PS2, I just HAD to buy this! It follows Red, a gunslinger who has travelled the land looking for his parents' murderers. Along the way, he becomes a bounty hunter for the sheriff of Brimstone, providing lots of oppotunities to take out the local heavies.
Red Dead is pure magic - the level design is marvellous, with alot of them being set piece shootouts and duels rather than spawling maps. The graphics are smooth and the scenary is stunning with terrific effects - looking like something Leone would be proud of! The controls are fiddly to begin with, but after a while, you realise that Rockstar have done a great job with the gameplay - allowing yu to jump, kick, punch, shoot (obviously) and roll over fences etc. like summit outa Magnificant 7! Plus loads of good weaponry and horses and bufalo that you can ride!
The multipayer allows up to four combatants and is also a real good laugh, and each character has their own special weapon. But the icing on the cake (aside from a wonderful soundtrack, pace and replay value) is the DEAD EYE mode. During gameplay, you build up your DEAD EYE and when activated, it provides a slow motion target display - in other words, you can target all six bullets on various limbs etc or multiple enemies and take them all out at once! COOL!!!!
You have to buy this game - it reminds me of the type of action that used to be good in Syphon Filter 1 and 2. Get it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars The first of its kind 20 May 2005
Red Dead Revolver, is a shooting game that takes place in the wild west. Different and unique to many of the games currently on the market.
You play as Red, a stone cold mercenary who's a sharpshooter, and doesn't really care what the mission is, as long as he's paid at the end of it. Storyline wise, there's not much there, but its no worse than most of the action games out there.
The graphics are unusual. Grainy, almost like your viewing them through sand. Deliberately done to give you an old western video sort of feeling. With that in mind, its certainly a nice refreshing change from the typical. The wild west looks beautiful and shows off in sections such as the town and the old home ranch.
The gameplay is what sets this apart. There is a fast action pace, requiring you to eliminate all the baddies, and trust me, there are a lot of baddies. This is in the usual shoot and duck sort of mode. However, there are a nice range of weapons to unlock throughout the game, which are brought with ransom money you've earned. The game also has unlockable characters which you can also use. It takes you accross train jouneys, to deserted towns, to the rocky mountains and back. However, one of the nicest features is the showdown option, which is the equivalent of a quick draw contest, where you will need to use the right analogue and aim quicker than your opponent.
With all this in mind, the sound could be neglected, but all it does is casually follow a Western theme whilst voice overs of your enemies can also be heard. This is a good game, and certainly one worth owning, but if you cannot stand the wild west (i mean really cannot stand) then this may not be the game for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Red Dead Revolver 25 July 2004
By A Customer
When I purchased Red Dead Revolver, I wasnt really a fan of western type genres, but once the game was up and running I realised how mistaken I was. This game is simply awesome. There are so many enjoyable elements to it from the gritty enviroments, to the hard tough characters, this game has an intense western atmosphere thats so enjoyable I found myself wanting to jump out of my seat screaming YEE HAW! "Red" as all great westerns go, is driven by a story of revenge, a young boys parents are murdered and years later the once young innocent child, now brutal Bounty Hunter is tracking down the killers, along with taking out a few bad ass villans on the way. It has a great story line and allows you to play as many different characters including ranch babe Annie Stoakes, and fine english man Jack Swift, which adds a large amount of variety to the game. Speaking Of Variety theres loads of different play modes to the game, from riding on horses down rocky canyons, to the intense duel mode where you can almost hear your enemy whispering " do you feel lucky punk" , one flaw from critics is the compaints of the games bad graphics, which i honestly dont know why, ok well its set in the wild west and i suppose its not the prettiest of places, but like i said it has a great atmosphere to it, and its not all wild desert hunting, within the game you get to visit lush forests, wild ranches, and luxurious mansions. And I also may add that the game includes a typical cowboy town, with its on townsfolk which are all interactive. Armed with a range of weapons from pistols to the good old dynamite youll be able to make your way through many levels defeating villans, most of the levels have a typical western enemy at the end, but they all have their own abilities which makes the game a lot more interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Will Follow 15 Feb. 2006
By Budge
I bought this game with great gusto and when I started to play it, I was not dissapointed. The gameplay is exceptional and very good, helped by the in game graphics; and the story is great for a video game.
Of course, this being a Rockstar game, there are some of the developer's touches: the blood, although nowhere near as horrid as GTA (which I am ashamed I ever played) is reminiscent of it in a vage way. For example it is watchable (and I am very sensitive when it comes to gore) but when you shoot someone in a "Showdown" it sort of spurts/dissipates out in front of the victim before dissapearing in to thin air.
In game however it is no worse than Timesplitters 3.
There are also some almost supernatural elements eg. Circus Freaks, Grizzly and the "boss" wearing the coffin.
But despite how this sounds this is a fantastic game.
There are some wonderful locations, controls, settings and even music! (tracks from Ennio Morricone)
It succsesfully portrays the feel of a spagetti western and the cut scenes are really atmospheric.
All the levels are really fun and some are more than excellent; especially where you get to ride a horse!
At the end of the day my overall summery would be that this is the first of it's kind and more will follow (hopefully they won't all be 18s - Gun) and they will hopefully become more sophisticated and will end in perfect quality. Maybe a Dollars game?
Having said this, it seems to me that, because this game captures the Western feel 90% (at numerouse times 100%), someone would have to come up with a really ingenuitive game to surpass it. Otherwise games may feel just a cleanup of this one.
But I am excited about the prospect of the Western genre in video games, especially after this.
