Pretty Darn' Good,
This review is from: GUN (PS2) (Video Game)
This game was a pleasant surprise.
You play as a Davie Crockett character hunting down a preacher who killed your father. As you wander about, or indeed ride around the wild west you come across others who ask you to perform tasks. In return you get a reward of some sort and its on your way.
The graphics are a bit dated but actually suit the western style of the game. All the tasks are the sort of things you get in western movies. Shoot indians, shoot bandits, rescue maidens in distress etc. Its pretty good fun, especially if you are a fan of the wild west.
The controls can be a bit cumbersome and the quickdraw, a sort of quicktime event, can be a blessing and a curse. The controls do get frustrating when the action heats up. As a result, some tasks can be a bit repetative because it is too fiddly to undertake, like shooting blazing arrows out the sky. The tutorial is helpful.
Overall, I enjoyed this and wouldn't mind trying a similar game again in the current gen. I thought the story was quite good as well...for a change!
