5.0 out of 5 stars I'm A Cowboy..., 5 Jan. 2006
This review is from: GUN (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
It may not push the Xbox 360 to its limits graphically, but for anybody who wants to be a cowboy, this game is essential.
The game is mostly free roaming, GTA style, but in the Old West. You can ride on horseback, explore little wooden towns, Indian villages, steam trains, it's all there and all feels authentic. I love the bars, with their poker tables and bar brawls. It's the fact that you really feel like you're in a Western, with all the cliches intact, that makes this game a winner.
However, you will find yourself with little time to roam and explore because the main missions and the storyline are just so good and riveting that you'll just keep playing to see how the story ends.
And what a story, it's riveting in all it's cinematic glory - kind of a cross between all those classic Westerns and Indiana Jones as your character searches for a mystical cross. The voice acting is superb, the best I've heard, with A-list hollywood actors like Thomas Jane, Ron Perlman and Kris Kristofferson all supplying their voices.
The story missions were quite easy, however, and on the easiest setting can easily be blast through in a couple of days. But try it out on Insane difficulty setting and it's like a proper Western with all the danger intact.
Aside from the main mission you get side missions involving such tasks like captruing bounties, gold digging, playing poker and being a ranch hand. All are quite interesting, but it depends how involved with the game you are if you will complete all of them.
The graphics on the 360 version may be poor - the console is capable of far better - and the gameplay doesn't exactly stress the machine out, but in terms of playability and interest then this game is a five starrer. It is so much fun being in this Western.
