Conclusion: As the series’ last hoorah on the Xbox Tiger Woods 07 succeeds with flying colors. For the first time in sports gaming history, it’s actually acceptable to bring gamers what they’ve had before. The last half decade of Tiger finds its way into the game in the form of game modes, options, and difficulty sliders.
Excerpt: I think most of the kids of my generation grew up pretending they were cowboys, shooting off toy guns at squirrels that easily became Indians when aimed at. We rode around on imaginary horses, galloping through our yards, yelling and generally having a lot of fun. I miss those days. My younger brothers and sisters don’t really know that world though.
Summary: Don't let this score scare you. It's a great purchase. It won't be a game all your friends will enjoy watching you play since there is no multiplayer. What I recommend doing is playing it all the way through and then lend it to your friends if they want to play. That's the only way they'll be able to play. GUN is fun and enjoyable while it lasts.
Pros: Listen to that great job they did on the voice casting.
Conclusion: Gun may be a flawed game, but it's definitely easy to overlook the little nitpicks because the good outweighs the bad. The game is a blend of GTA's mission-style gameplay, Max Payne action and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. The narrative is what really sucks you in with some great production quality and the ease of gun-fighting will keep your trigger finger itching.
Excerpt: Neversoft has finally branched out, away from the Tony Hawk franchise and skateboarding games altogether. But few expected them to go make a western game like GUN with open-ended gameplay and a big world map for you to freely explore. But they did, and while GUN has a great story and some nice side missions in its non-linear setup, it simply lacks the fun that players might expect out of a game like this. In GUN, you'll play as a young gunslinger named Colton White.
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.
Excerpt: Welcome to the DarkZero review of Gun for the Xbox360, most of you probably know that this is basically the same game as its older counterparts with little or no changes been made to any parts of the game. In fact the gameplay is exactly the same as its PS2 and Xbox counterparts so you might notice all of our Gameplay text is exactly the same as it was in Johelian’s review of the game on older systems.
Conclusion: Perhaps its not really a fair comment to make in a review which is supposed to be extolling the virtues of Gun and Gun alone, but I personally felt a little deflated by the overall style of the game having played Red Dead Revolver and being a fan of the spaghetti Western; although Gun does feel superior in terms of gameplay and variety, Red Dead captures the style of the spaghetti Western so much more effectively.
Excerpt: "Gun on yksi niistä harvoista länkkäripeleistä, joka onnistuu olemaan nautittava pelattava. Valitettavasti kuitenkin loppujen lopuksi yksinkertaiset tehtävät, sekä pelin eliniän lyhyt kesto nakertavat hieman kokonaisuutta. Kaikesta huolimatta Gun onnistuu olemaan hitusen verran kilpailijaansa Red Dead Revolveria nautittavampi paketti.
Pros: + Länkkäritunnelma, + Audiovisuaalisesti varsin Western-henkinen, + Ratsastaminen esimerkillisesti toteutettu
