  • Excerpt: Introduction This take on a Grand Theft Auto style play, Gun takes you into the Wild West in a short, but excellent game by the developers that brought the masses the Tony Hawk series. In this open environment, you can move around in a variety of ways, and take part in some great shoot outs old school style. The story of Gun is simple: You play Colton White, a gunslinger raised by a hunter named Ned (voiced by Kris Kristofferson).

  • Excerpt: Sometimes, while rummaging around in the bargain bin, you'll find a true gaming gem. Gun , a game that was released with very little fanfare in late 2005, is one such game. More notable as one of the Xbox 360's launch titles, Gun was also released on the Gamecube, Xbox, PlayStation 2 and PC. This review is about the PlayStation 2 version of the game. Besides being a cheap game that's actually good, Gun is unique because there are very few Western-themed videogames.

  • Excerpt: Brutal. That’s the first word you’ll think of when asked to describe Gun once you’ve played it. The thoughts of the maniac Reverend killing his unhelpful lush by throwing an axe at the back of her head during one of the early cut scenes will come to mind. Brutal. Visions of your ‘father’ Ned White running out of ammo whilst defending a riverboat, using the butt of his rifle to knock three attackers sprawling and then being blown up as the boiler gives in to the heat of...

  • Excerpt: The American Western as a thematic genre is one that was popular in cinema some years ago but has never really taken off when it comes to the videogame market. Outside of Red Dead Revolver and a handful of other titles, the genre has seen little to no attention in recent years. So, when Neversoft revealed that they were working on a third person action/shooter set in the old West, I was a bit intrigued, and even a little skeptical.
  • Pros: Western action with lots of sidequests, Gunplay is pretty fun, Pretty large world with some nice looking locations, Impressive voice cast
  • Cons: Story mission path is short, Save menu takes too long to use, HUD could be smaller

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: It's refreshing to play an action game that isn't set in an inner-city environment and that alone is almost reason enough to give Gun a try. While the gameplay may not be all we wanted it to be, it's still a competent vehicle for getting you through the twists of the blood-soaked story. If you're a fan of the Wild West, you're probably already playing this, but if you're not, you might want to give this one another look.

  • Conclusion: The storyline in place here is good, even if the final boss fight and ending are maddeningly off target. But the game is more than the storyline, it's the experience, and that much of things is quite solid indeed.
