Just quick review for all you would be buyers of Gun. -Bad news, It's far to short -Good news It's a great game, very atmoshperic and good story with great graphics and great gameplay. Great sattisfaction in dismembering bad cowboys heads and limbs(how sick)and is a great shooter game. It would still be in my collection but was completed far too early, if the story was double the size Gun would of been a great classic in my collection. Oh well i can now get suck into Warriors which seems pretty cool and will no dought have hours of story to play knowing rockstars reputation! Buy Gun for your collection when it goes for under a tenner or you might be dissapointed by it's value for money.....

This is one of the best western games i have ever played. The story line is fantasticly familiar and the characters really make you feel that YOU are part of the game. There is one draw back however, as you progress through. The game it really does become harder and when someone reaches the point that you really can not go past the game really gets dull. More than most games.
The graphics at first sight are not brilliant but the gameplay suddenly draws the attention away from that.
In total the game is a great buy. I highly recommend it!

i was very impressed with this game, however i was hugely dissapointed with its length. i got it when i was off school ill, and so i played it quite alot then. after playing for only about 3 hours i felt i was quite far into the plot, which, unfortunatley, i was. this however, is my only vice with the game. the plot is really very gripping, and kept me playing simply to find out what happened next. the game borrows heavily from classic western films, and i was pleased that i could play out all my favourite bits from cheesy clint eastwood films, such as shooting through the hangmans rope to save an ally. fighting apaches off the bridge out of dodge city and the street fight as you work your way through empire to kill the corrupt mayor were particularly enjoyable. weaponry is also good and well designed, as you really feel that you are doing damage with your weapons, especially the shotguns. the 'quick draw' ability is an almost unashemed rip-off of 'red dead revolvers''s dead eye ability, but that doesnt really matter to me. the only annoying thing about the weapons is that you can get too good with them. near the end of the game, you get the furgison rifle, which fires slowly (in real life) and must be reloaded after each shot. however, if you have done most of the side missions, you can fire it almost semi automatic, and you can fire your pistols almost continually with basically no relaod time by the end. the game also gets rather rediculous near the end, with the final boss being encased in armour so you cant hurt him, and having a ludicrously powerful and annoyingly accurate Nock gun, as featured in sharpe. it took me absoloutely ages to figure out how to kill him. generally, the game plays very well, and is quite accurate in its representation of the period. i thouroughly enjoyed playing this game, but was dissapointed by its length. definatley worth haveing. oh and by the way, if you buy it, play on hard. its much more rewarding, as normal mode is very very easy.

The best ever cowboy console game. An epic story with every spaghetti western cliche and brilliant voice acting. Your helping the indians take over a fort one minute with fire arrows, doing jobs for the pony express and then playing poker. Gun has breathtaking landscapes and highly enjoyable boss battles. And with the side missions, the gold mining and the different difficulty missions to do Gun has excellent replay value. The horse riding flows when you master it and is something beautiful when you master shooting on your horse. The unlockables are great too with two amazing guns and a wicked horse. If you do not like extreme violence this is not for you. But if you like explosions blowing people to pieces, firing arrows into people's faces , burning bandits, dismembering badguys with shotguns, popping people's heads with snipers oh yeah and all the violence to animals. horses get blown apart as well as humans. So to summarise an excellent game with story mind blowing visuals and dismembered horses.

A per the other reviews - a little too short for my liking. I purchased this for £19.99 and played all day Sat/Sun and have finished it, with all the side quests done. Still...What there is, is different, good fun and well worth the money I paid. Quite hard in some places and a good laugh in others!!!

Well, I have been playing GUN for a few days now and I have to say that this is one of the best 3rd person games I have ever played. Your character is Colton White, who is trying to avenge the death of his 'father', who gets killed at the start of the game. This leads you into the meat of the game, which is not unlike GTA. There are the main story missions to progress in the game, however there are side missions such as playing poker at the saloon, or helping ranchers to look after their herds. While that might sound boring, it does help improve you shooting or horse riding skills and earn you money. The story so far has been good, with an excellent cast of voices involved from the movie world. Good game play, good cast, good story and great graphics. What more could you want!

i must say when i got this game on release date, i did'nt know what to expect!,but i was very suprised how good the game was in respect of gameplay and how different it feels to other games,you get that sense of how the western times really felt and how things can turn very bad for you when you mess with the wrong people,the storyline is good and keeps you wanting to play on to find out more about your charecter and the enemies. i would recommend this game to anyone who loves a good shoot out all tense action game,but the 18 cerify is there for a reason not for children as it is sometimes very violent,i'll give it the thumbs up.

Im not a big fan of western films, never have been and probably never will be. But saying that a few good western films have entertained me in the past, so when this game cropped up, i thought i would check it out.
First things first, yes the old cliche, it is GTA in the days of cowboys and indians.
Presentation - Gun is very well presented. From the opening scenes you can tell that the game is going to run on a good story. Loading screens take a abit of time from the main menu but once the game is actually loaded they are non existant
Graphics - Xbox pulls this off well. The landscapes are vast and distant. The viewing distance is pretty far so you can see rocks and valleys from a good distance without noticable clipping. The player models are well detailed, with some nice cigar smoke effects from some of the customers. I do have a slight gripe that i wish there was some more detail in the game. Where the landscapes are big, they could use a little more detail along with the town buildings as well.
Sound - Excellent soundtrack, sounds like its being ripped straight from a major hollywood movie. The game has a good supporting cast with the likes of Lance Henrikson (aliens,the quick and the dead), Ron Pearlman (alien resurrection, hellboy) and tom skerritt (alien) hmmmm am i sensing a cast theme here?
The general sound effects sound great also.
Gameplay - Gun plays fairly well, the controls are not too difficult to handle and the horse riding is very simplistic. Actually using your rifle while riding could of proven to be very difficult, but the controls in the game make it pretty straight forward with a good decent difficulty curve to master. The missions in the game a pretty varied however they do pretty much involve shooting folk.
Last Appeal - Gun isnt that difficult a game to complete. With the side missions on offer such as ransoms, helping towns folk, marhsal duty, card games and extras like finding gold mines to dig, it should keep you going for a while. I cant help feel though that the developers could of added more stuff in this game. Perhaps a little more variety in missions and a more missions itself would be good. I dont think the game would take most folk more than a week or 2 to complete and once done there isnt really much more to go back for.
Overall View
The game does good, it has enough for those that are looking something abit more different that driving around streets completing missions (which there seems to be alot around). gun is good, and just about that.
