The Old American West in all its glory...,
By A Customer
This review is from: GUN (PS2) (Video Game)
Gun is the best game imaginable. The graphics, the gameplay, the controls, The STORY and everything else is just about perfect. Neversoft have done a bloody good job on this free-roaming, action/adventure Western. It is my favourite game of all time along with the Resident evil series and the original oddworld games. The story is gripping, much better than that of any other Adventure game and it makes you want to keep on playing. People say the graphics are bad in parts. I don't think they no what they are on about. The graphics are amazingly good especially the different skies and sunsets. Also the voice acting is superb. You play as Colton White who, after seeing his "father" die, goes to exact vengeful justice on those who have wronged him (as it quotes on the box). There are twenty weapons including revolvers, rifles, shotguns, snipers/sharpshooters, melee weapons and explosives. It is also good because you can fully blow your enemies (or non-enemies) into bodyparts and bloody pieces and chunks. You can have a real fun time. The game is reasonably short, but most people go on easy or normal. Those difficulties are too easy. Hard is challenging and insane is very hard but more realistic as it only takes about 1 or 2 shots to kill you. The map is quite a medium size but is a decnt landscape and has many types of terrain such as hills, mountains, deserts, plains, forestal areas, islands and bustling towns. The game is full of side missions and it can take a while to get absolutely everything completed. If you love westerns you should deffinately get this as there is only one other decnt western game out: red dead revolver. If you don't like westerns then still go and bludy buy it. 5 stars is nothing for this game. Give it an infinite amount.
