Summary: GUN Showdown puts players in the role of Colton White, a vengeful gunslinger making his way through the untamed West of the late-1800s where the lines between good and evil are blurred and greed, lust and brutality were a way of life.
Excerpt: Expanding on the original GUN, which was released in 2005, players will be able to get their teeth into five new missions for the PSP version, entitled GUN: Showdown. In GUN: Showdown, players assume the role of Colton White.
Excerpt: Gun didn’t exactly set the world afire, though it did provide a solid entry in the oft-neglected western genre. Gun Showdown is a PSP port of the original and offers all the same gameplay of the original, while also adding extra missions and a multiplayer mode.
Excerpt: Porting console titles onto the PSP is becoming a growing trend, with developer Neversoft being the latest to send their somewhat unique creation, a wild west-themed third person shooter, to the PSP.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Despite initial promise this soon dissipates once the cumbersome control method become apparent. Other factors such as poor AI and average graphics prevents the player gaining any sort of momentum and enjoyment.
Conclusion: I really wanted to give this game higher marks, but I didn't. I might be making a huge complaint out of something that might not even bother you, but I really could not stand 's controls. Using the buttons as a directional control is awful and counterintuitive with the PSP's setup.
Excerpt: Last year Neversoft shocked the gamingworld with the release of Gun. Not so much because the game was spectacular, but because no one figured they’d ever release a game that didn’t star Tony Hawk.
