4.0 out of 5 stars ARGH! too short!, 23 Nov. 2005
This review is from: GUN (Xbox) (Video Game)
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.
