Dead Man’s Hand Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: The term “on paper” gets thrown around quite a bit in the media, particularly when referencing a sport’s team that has a lot of popular talent, but lacks chemistry; they are therefore only good “on paper”. Dead Man’s Hand could be considered a game that is great on paper. A later generation Unreal engine, a unique story era, online multiplayer; it all looks like the makings of an all-star title, but what Dead Man’s Hand lacks are the basics which are integral to stellar...

  • Conclusion: There's a good game "hiding in them there hills" which fans of the Wild West will really love, but a few unpolished aspects to Dead Man's Hand ultimately disappoint - a shame when you consider there's bar brawls, horseback shoot-outs and a whole range of other action which could have snatched the attention from the now somewhat ancient but still unbeaten Mad Dog McCree.

  • Excerpt: It's been a while since we've seen a decent Wild West first person shooter. Capcom and Lucasarts had titles years ago but with a genre so ripe with game potential there's been a surprising dearth of titles--until now.

  • Excerpt: Western sind Kult, zumindest für die Älteren unter uns. Das Sortiment dieser einzigartigen Filmgattung ist ebenso abwechslungsreich wie abgefahren. Trotzdem haben Clint Eastwood zu Pferd und eine sechs-schüssige Smith & Wesson auch heute noch Ihren Reiz. Umso verwunderlicher, dass die Videospiel-Industrie auf der Suche nach frischen Szenarien einige Jahre brauchte, um an den Erfolg von Lucas Arts’ PC Klassiker Outlaws anknüpfen zu wollen.
  • Pros: + Gelungene Atmosphäre + unverbrauchtes Szenario + Sound auf höchstem Niveau + Physiksystem...
  • Cons: - das kaum genutzt wird - ruckelnde Grafik - übertriebenes Autoaiming - Gameplay zu Arcadelastig - frustiges Speichersystem - übler Xbox Live Bug
